Georgia Heritage Federal Credit Union

Georgia Heritage Federal Credit Union is one of the oldest locally owned financial institutions in the Savannah area. Their mission is making a positive difference for their members and the communities they serve. As a not-for-profit organization, they can—and do—put members first. They strive to maintain a one-on-one relationship with their members while providing them with a full line of financial resources. As stewards of our community, they work to promote and assist in its growth each and every day.

As we celebrate veterans in this issue of Pooler Magazine, we would like to introduce you to Tim Beeson, Vice President of Information Technology at Georgia Heritage Federal Credit Union and a proud veteran of the United States Navy.

Growing up, Tim experienced living in many different parts of the country. He says, “My father was a very successful grocery warehouse distribution manager for Safeway Stores Inc. They transferred our family around the US about every five years. We lived in Washington State, Oklahoma, California, and Virginia. I graduated from high school in Chesterfield, Virginia.”

Tim joined the US Navy in 1980, and in addition to playing soccer for the Navy all over the world, he was a Legalman—the term for the Navy’s paralegals for military attorneys and judges. In his first two years as a Legalman, he performed paralegal duties, such as recording courts martial, administrative discharges, legal research, and assistance to commands in regard to legal administration.

One of his best experiences in the Navy was writing his first computer program. This made him realize how computers can improve our lives. This motivated Tim to change his career path to information technology. His military training and experience gave him a broad understanding of all areas of computer concepts. After his Naval career, Tim completed his Information Technology degree.

 In 1989 he found his next passion working in the credit union industry. He credits the Navy for fostering an environment of camaraderie that also carried over into his work in the private sector. Today, he is the Vice President of Information Technology at Georgia Heritage.

Tim says he would like people to know that Georgia Heritage FCU has been in existence for over 80 years and is financially strong and secure. “Our mission is making a positive difference for our members and the communities we serve. We deploy smart and secure technology that helps provide excellent service to our members,” he says. “It’s a great place to work. Apply for employment and join our team!”
