The $608 million Amplify Federal Credit Union of Austin, Texas, will have double the bragging rights at this year’s NAFCU Annual Conference, when two of its executives are honored with prestigious awards.
The event is scheduled for July 9-13 in Boston.
According to a Wednesday release from the 45,000-member credit union, CEO Paul Trylko was named NAFCU’s CEO of the Year in the $151 million to $750 million asset category. Last year, the chief executive was named Best CEO in the non-profit category by the Austin Business Journal, and received the Best Customer Service award from the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce.
“Paul has led Amplify to tremendous success, demonstrating exemplary leadership skills and ardent dedication. He is an inspiration to his team, employees, colleagues and the credit union industry as a whole,” said Amplify Board Chairman Willie Everett.
Additionally, Vice President of Marketing Lisa Nicholas was selected as NAFCU’s Marketing Professional of the Year in the same asset category. Nicholas was also named CUNA’s 2013 Marketing Professional of the Year. In 2012, under Nicholas’ leadership, Amplify’s marketing campaigns generated $81 million in loan growth and 4,430 new members, the credit union said.
“Lisa’s dedication to her team, community and development of Amplify’s member-first programs and services has helped our credit union achieve the success we have today, and this award is a testament of that,” said Kendall Garrison, senior vice president of lending. “We’re all proud of the work Lisa’s done. She’s one of the top marketers, and now professionals, of our industry.”
