UFCU, the Austin-based credit union with $4.676 billion in total assets, has hired Christy Soukhamneut as chief lending officer.

In her new role, she will be responsible for overseeing the consumer lending organization, which includes mortgage and direct auto lending, as well as the business banking and commercial lending group. Soukhamneut joins UFCU from Texas Capital Bank where she served as the senior vice president and then managing director for the bank’s mortgage finance group.

“UFCU has long been a leader in consumer lending for Central Texas through our mortgage and auto business,” said UFCU Executive Vice President of Member Experience Chris Turnley. “We are confident that with her diverse and depth of experience, Christy will be able to envision and innovate approaches and programs that will further increase access to capital for a greater number of people in our community.”
