This past week, credit unions across the nation beefed up their executive teams with new talent. Plus, a CEO in Houston retired after 26 years of service.


Two employees at the $1.2 billion, Lowell, Mass.-based Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union, Diane Clark (pictured) and Jennifer Rideout, were both promoted to assistant treasurers/branch managers. Clark will be the new branch manager in the Westford, Mass. location. She began her employment at Jeanne D’Arc in 2006 as a part-time receptionist, and has also held positions as member service representative, head teller and assistant branch manager. Rideout has 13 years of experience in the financial industry, and began as a Jeanne D’Arc team member in 2005. Throughout her employment, she has held various positions including senior teller, senior member service representative and assistant branch manager.


The $512 million, Indianapolis-based Financial Center First Credit Union promoted Jennifer Rue (pictured) to vice president of enterprise risk management. She previously served as director of internal audit and has been with the credit union for more than nine years.
