MADISON, Wis. -- Teresa Y. Freeborn, president/CEO of Xerox Federal Credit Union, El Segundo, Calif., recently accepted an appointment to the CUES board of directors.
Freeborn's addition to the board fills the unexpired term of immediate past chair and former director Rose Bartolomucci, CCE, president/CEO, Reward One Credit Union, Brook Park, Ohio.
Bartolomucci, who has dedicated her time and service to CUES for the past six years, announced her resignation from the CUES board. Bartolomucci's departure follows her appointment as the new Deputy Superintendent of Credit Unions for the State of Ohio.
"I am proud to have been a part of this dedicated organization. Teresa is an excellent fit with the values and service that CUES members deem important, and I am confident she will carry out the remainder of my term successfully," said Bartolomucci.
Freeborn, a CUES member since 2000, was named CUES Marketer of the Year in 2002 and CUES Future Leader in 2005; she is a past chair of CUES' Southern California/Arizona Council, of which she has been a member for seven years. Prior to her leadership of Xerox Federal Credit Union, she acted as senior vice president of marketing and communications for Kinecta Federal Credit Union and president of the credit union's subsidiary Kinecta Financial Management Company, LLC.
Previously, Freeborn served the Canadian credit union system for 27 years, where she was prominently involved in campaigns to educate the public about the movement. She has continued this advocacy as a member of the California Credit Union League's Ad Hoc Public Advocacy Committee and chair of its Media Oversight Subcommittee. As an active volunteer, Freeborn has worked on a number of community causes, including Children's Miracle Network/Children's Hospital Los Angeles and the Special Olympics Summer Games.
