December 12, 2019

Aldergrove, BC – On Tuesday, December 10, Aldergrove Credit Union CEO Gus K. Hartl won the HD Stafford Good Citizen of the Year award presented by the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce. Since 1980, the HD Stafford Award has been presented to a deserving individual for their outstanding contribution to making a difference in the Langley community.

“Gus’ love for community, humble nature, strong business sense, and family values make him a respected community leader and citizen who is highly regarded by everyone he meets. Gus leads by example and empowers his team to give back to the communities we work and live in,” stated the ACU Leadership Team in their nomination of Gus. “He brings compassion into the workplace, never missing a birthday or a work anniversary - to Gus, we are family.”

Under Gus’ leadership, Aldergrove Credit Union staff volunteered over 500 hours and supported over 254 individuals, events, and organizations with sponsorships, donations, and awards in 2018.

Gus plays an active role in the community not just as the CEO of Aldergrove Credit Union, but also as a member of the Rotary Clubs of Langley. In 2018, Gus brought together three local credit unions - Envision Financial a Division of First West Credit Union, G&F Financial Group, and Prospera Credit Union to co-sponsor the first ever Rotary organized Langley Ribfest. The event has since raised over $210,000 for the community.

“I am honoured and humbled by this award,” Gus stated. “I feel very fortunate to live and work in one of the most beautiful places in the world. But at the end of the day, it’s the people that bring a sense of community which makes Langley a wonderful place to call home.”
