On the evening of Tuesday, March 15, in front of more than 100 colleagues, family members and friends, Jane Watkins, president/CEO of Virginia Credit Union, was honored on the eve of her retirement, scheduled for March 31, at the historic and majestic Scott House in Richmond, Va.

During Jane’s storied career of three and a half decades at VCU, she served 16 years as its president/CEO and took the credit union from $30 million in assets to more than $3 billion with an air of class and distinction that is without equal in our industry. From those who knew her best came numerous heartfelt testimonials in which she was described as a leader who is smart, persistent, precise, witty, energetic, caring and genuine. Her employees – many of whom have been with her for decades – used the terms honest, principled, compassionate, fun, authentic, empathetic and real. But it was her husband of more than 28 years who so eloquently described the determination of a woman who found the right balance between being a wife, mother and one who provided more than 34 years of unwavering support pursuing her passion to serve her members and community.
