Chris Fraenza

Impact Manager


As Filene’s Impact Manager, Chris covers a lot of ground and moves fast. He helps take the best of Filene’s research and innovation and move it into action through tangible programs customized for credit unions. When he’s not creating Impact with credit unions, he is aiding in the community management of The Cooperative Trust.

Chris was formerly the Research & Innovation Catalyst at Filene and started his credit union career at Connex Credit Union in Connecticut. He graduated cum laude from the Albertus Magnus College with a BBA-Finance degree and as a proud member of Kappa Gamma Pi – National Catholic Graduate Honor Society.

Currently a sunny California resident, Chris enjoys traveling and meeting new and exciting people. Car enthusiast, dog lover, and beach goer are just a few of the things that describe his life when he’s not shaping the future of credit unions.
