Matz Gives Up Retirement for No. 2 Job at Andrews FCU
SUITLAND, Md. -- Debbie Matz retired from government service when she left the NCUA Board in the fall of 2005, but resurfaced in the private sector. She started April 17, as executive vice president and chief operating officer at Andrews Federal Credit Union, fulfilling her desire to stay in the credit union community. Matz' key areas include membership growth, raising member satisfaction, and increasing loan growth. AFCU CEO Michael Hale said he believes Matz genuinely feels the need to reach out to the underserved, which the $746 million credit union strives to do. Matz was well known for her Partnering and Leadership Successes initiative while at NCUA, which brought credit unions together to share ideas on how to do just that. She also served as vice chair of the Board of NeighborWorks(C) America, an agency created by Congress to bolster affordable housing efforts.
