Doug Chambers

President and CEO of Lookout Credit Union



Doug, a seasoned professional with 18 years in the industry, assumed the role of CEO in 2019, leading Lookout Credit Union to unprecedented success. Armed with an MBA from Idaho State University and National Certified Business Lender credentials, Doug has been a driving force behind Lookout's achievements.

Under Doug's visionary leadership, Lookout Credit Union has been consistently recognized as one of the best credit unions to work for in the nation for six years. The credit union has garnered over 60 Credit Union Diamond Awards, the 2022 Pocatello/Chubbuck Chamber Member of the Year Award, and numerous local and national accolades.

Doug's commitment to community engagement is evident through impactful projects like Lookout Point, a new park in Downtown Pocatello, and the installation of turf for Pocatello High School's historic home field.

Doug's unconventional approach to leadership is showcased through the "30 for 40 Program," introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. This program has not only revolutionized the workplace, saving costs and improving retention but has also positively impacted employee well-being.

Beyond Lookout Credit Union, Doug is actively involved in industry CEO groups, served on the board of the Portneuf Valley Boys and Girls Club, and is a recognized speaker on culture and leadership.

Lookout Credit Union, with $340M in assets and 81 employees, is a beacon in Southeastern Idaho, recently announcing the opening of a branch in Meridian in 2024.

Doug is a true example of the Alpha Kappa Psi values of brotherhood, knowledge, service, integrity, and unity. We are humbly honored to present him with this award, and we would like to invite you to spend an evening with us, celebrating all of his monumental accomplishments and contributions to our community.
