ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – PSCU Financial Services, the card processor for over 500 credit unions who use the First Data platform, has announced that Jane Watkins, CEO of the over $1 billion Virginia Credit Union, based in Richmond, has joined its board of directors for a three-year term. In addition to serving on a number of committees and as a liaison to several organizations, Watkins also serves on the board of Credit Union 24, the Florida-based credit union owned ATM network that has been the subject of a merger offer as recently as January 2003.
