Judy DeLucca

President and CEO New Orleans Firemen’s Federal Credit Union

The President and CEO of New Orleans Firemen’s Federal Credit Union, Judy DeLucca, is dedicated to upholding NOFFCU’s community-focused mission and expanding its services to eliminate barriers to financial services for our underserved neighbors.

“The mission of NOFFCU is to provide responsibly priced financial services to the community,” says DeLucca. Our goal is to fully democratize financial services and ensure everyone can participate in the American dream with equity and dignity.”

DeLucca credits her mentors and experience in credit unions with instilling in her the experience to lead an organization such as this and the importance of how these institutions impact others. She has surrounded herself with a world-class team of experienced financial professionals dedicated to serving others in keeping with the organization’s namesake and guiding principles.

“This credit union was started in a cigar box in NOFD central station because firefighters banded together and thought they could give themselves a better deal than what the big banks were offering,” says DeLucca, “90 years later, while we have grown and expanded past our origins, we retain that independent attitude.”

Recognizing the generational detriments of the black/white homeowner gap in the US has fueled DeLucca and her team to devise innovative ways to bridge the glaring wealth divide.

DeLucca’s intentional commitment to providing free financial education, creating more holistic underwriting policies beyond simple credit scores, and boldly addressing systemic disparities in underserved and overlooked communities has positioned NOFFCU as an industry leader in the mission to create equity through homeownership.
