LEVERAGE, the service corporation of the League of Southeastern Credit Unions and Affiliates in Tallahassee, Fla., has hired Lisa Burroughs as its new senior vice president of strategy and business operations.
Burroughs replaces Marvin Garland, who was named executive vice president of finance and administration for LEVERAGE. Garland replaced Scott Morgan, former executive vice president and administration, who left LEVERAGE for another job opportunity in Georgia.
Over the past 20 years, she has served as vice president of marketing, chief operations officer and president/CEO for credit unions ranging from $60 million to $1.3 billion in assets.
“Her vast leadership experience at credit unions of all sizes will help us understand the priorities and needs of the variety of credit unions we serve,” said LSCU and Leverage President/CEO Patrick La Pine. “Additionally, she will be instrumental in developing and implementing a more streamlined business process at LEVERAGE and her experience with building and sustaining growth will be invaluable as LEVERAGE moves forward.”
Prior to coming to LEVERAGE, Burroughs was the chief operations officer at the $1.3 billion, 80,753-member Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union in Clinton Township, Mich., where she spent nearly 13 years. Prior to Michigan Schools and Government, Burroughs served as president/CEO of the $78 million, 13,947-member Parkside Credit Union in Livonia, Mich.
“Joining the LEVERAGE team is an exciting opportunity,” said Burroughs. “I’m looking forward to working for a league and service corporation so dedicated to helping credit unions succeed. I look forward to helping an already successful LEVERAGE as it continues to grow and ensure the company is not only meeting the needs of credit unions today but also the future needs of credit unions.”
