MADISON, Wis. (1/3/14)--The National Credit Union Foundation has named Danielle Brown as director of development and donor relations.
In 2011, NCUF named Brown the national coordinator of Biz Kid$, the credit union-sponsored public television series, on a contract basis. She previously served as vice president of the Northwest Credit Union Association and executive director of the Oregon Credit Union Foundation.
In her new position, Brown's primary duties will include NCUF development, fundraising, donor relations and serving as NCUF liaison to the State Credit Union Foundation Network. Brown will also continue to be the national coordinator of Biz Kid$, a role in which she is responsible for advancing the funding, use and integration of Biz Kid$ within the credit union movement.
"Danielle brings a wealth of experience and passion to the foundation, and we couldn't be happier to work with her in this new role," said Gigi Hyland, NCUF executive director.
Prior to the merger of the Oregon and Washington leagues, Brown was senior vice president of operations for the Credit Union Association of Oregon.
In other NCUF staff development, Jenni Speth has been promoted to the role of administration and meeting coordinator, and Cameron Newfarmer has been hired as finance and administration assistant.
