Vistage, the world’s largest CEO coaching and peer advisory organization for small and midsize businesses, today announced John Faust is the recipient of the Vistage Leadership Award for the Southcentral Region. The Leadership Award celebrates a member’s enduring excellence in leadership, recognizing the discernible impact they’ve had on their business, Vistage group and community.

John Faust is the President and CEO of Diamond Credit Union, a Pennsylvania state-chartered and federally insured credit union serving Berks County and the Tri-County Region since 1947. Over the 9 years that John has been a Vistage member, Diamond’s assets grew 116%, membership grew 61% and employees grew 68%.  They added 5 new branches and recent strategic plans have included conversion to a state-of the-art core data processing system and lending system, realignment of the organization’s staff structure, and partnership with an innovative digital technology organization creating the ability to further grow the credit union’s reach digitally and to establish the ability to utilize data analytics.

“I am humbled and honored to receive the 2021 Leadership Award,” said Faust.  “To have been nominated by my fellow Vistage CEO peer group members and Joni Naugle, Vistage Master Chair and to receive such recognition from a prestigious organization as Vistage is one of the highlights of my career.”

“John has been a stellar member since joining Vistage,” said Joni Naugle, Vistage Master Chair.   “His insight brings great value to the other group members.  He is always open to new ideas, willingly shares his knowledge, challenges others and brings his sense of humor just when we need it most,” Naugle continued.  “Working with him as his Vistage Chair is a true privilege and delight.”
