This past week, professionals at credit unions across the nation took the next step in their career. The announcements included two new CEOs, who will succeed their current, soon-to-retire CEOs.


The $1.3 billion Whitefish Credit Union in Whitefish, Mont., promoted Alicia Softich to South Kalispell branch and EFT manager. Softich has spent more than 10 years in the financial services industry, most recently as Whitefish's EFT manager since 2013. Softich will manage all aspects of the credit union's new South Kalispell branch. Terry Janke was promoted to head teller at the new South Kalispell branch. Janke will join Softich at the South Kalispell branch, managing the teller line and ensuring members are assisted in a thorough and timely manner. Several current credit union staff members have relocated to new branches throughout Northwest Montana. The South Kalispell branch is now home to Megan Cady, member service representative II; and Seth Mortenson, teller II. Rhonda Taylor, member service representative I, is now located at the Kalispell office. Tiffany Mayhan, member service representative I, is now at the Whitefish branch; and members will now find Alex Topolewski, head teller, at the Columbia Falls branch.
