Kirk Kordeleski, Bethpage Federal Credit Union CEO

This is Kordeleski’s fifth consecutive year on the Power List as his impressive record of growth at the helm of Bethpage Federal Credit Union continues. To younger generations, the financial institution will be more recognizable than the behemoth defense manufacturing company that gave birth to it. What defines the Kordeleski era is the understanding that to succeed in a community, business must support the people in it. With a philosophy of “what’s good for the community is good for Bethpage,” Kordeleski has become the tide that lifts all of our boats. And while there might be financial institutions with bigger balance sheets, none have bigger hearts—which is why “Double K” is the only banker you’ll find on this list.
