CU Times Names the Latest Industry Women to Watch
Washington, D.C., March 21, 2014—CU Times recently recognized its Women to Watch honorees during a reception, sponsored by NewGround, during CUNA's Governmental Affairs Conference. Women to Watch recognizes women challenging the status quo and pushing creative solutions to address issues at their credit union or for the community as a whole.
2013 honorees are:
- Melodie Godfrey, Executive Vice President/COO, ORNL Federal Credit Union
- Tami Langton, Vice President, Business Transformation, Coastal Federal Credit Union
- Renee Muccioli, Vice President Sales, Credit Union ONE
- Debra I. Da Costa, Former Vice President, Marketing, UNFCU
- Anne Legg, Former Vice President, Marketing, Financial Partners CU
- Stacie Wyss-Schoenborn, Vice President Member Solutions, BECU
- Christine Blake, President/CEO, Cardinal Community Credit Union
- Wanda Chambers, Senior Vice President Payment Services, Suncoast Schools FCU
- April Clobes, Executive Vice President/COO, MSU Federal Credit Union
- Rebecca Reynolds Lytle, Senior Vice President, Lending, San Francisco Federal Credit Union
“While the credit union community has been more female friendly than most, plenty of work remains to be done to obtain true equality,” CU Times Publisher/Editor-in-Chief Sarah Snell Cooke said. “Female credit union executives deserve to be appropriately recognized for the talents they bring to the credit union community.”
Female CEOs dominate the less-than-$50 million in assets credit unions, but the roles are switched higher up the ranks. A recent Executive Compensation Solutions survey found that the average female CEO's salary was $178,080 in 2013, compared to $172,756 in 2012. Comparatively, the average male CEO's salary was $223,834 in 2013, up from $208,231 in 2012. “CU Times is proud to be a part of raising the issue of gender diversity and equality at the highest ranks of the credit union community,” Cooke said. “We hope that by highlighting these Women to Watch, CU Times can play a small role in increasing women at the top. Study after study has demonstrated that companies with more female leaders perform better. It’s simply sound business practice to elevate more talented women to the corner offices of credit unions.”
Nominations are taken throughout the year and narrowed down to an elite 10 recognized on CUTimes.com/W2W and in CU Times magazine. The W2W microsite features news, opinions, links to blogs, and recommended reads for aspiring Women to Watch.
Nominations for 2014 are open at CUTimes.com/W2W and will be accepted throughout the year.
