CU System
Filene welcomes five research council members
MADISON, Wis. (7/27/10)--The Filene Research Institute welcomed five new credit union CEOs to its research council. The council helps decide which topics Filene should research and which volunteers will pilot Filene innovations. It also works with Filene’s outside researchers to provide access and insight to the credit union system. The new members are:
* Gerry Agnes, Elevations CU, Boulder, Colo. Agnes previously was with Altura CU, Riverside, Calif., where he worked as president/chief operating officer, chief financial officer, and president of its subsidiary holding company. * Mary Madden, Hudson Valley FCU, Poughkeepsie, N.Y. She has worked more than 20 years to educate people on the value of belonging to nonprofit financial cooperatives. She has led Hudson Valley’s operations, marketing, lending and human resources departments during her tenure. * Lily Newfarmer, Tarrant County CU, Fort Worth, Texas. She has served in the credit union industry for 25 years and chairs the Texas Credit Union Foundation--where she has served as a board trustee since 2001. * Eugene Scymczak, Educators CU, Racine, Wis. He has served as loan officer, vice president of consumer lending and senior vice president of operations before becoming president in 1994. He started as a teller in 1972. * Launi Skinner, First West CU, Surrey, B.C. She has more than 20 years of business experience in the U.S. and Canada, including a term as president/CEO of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Skinner served as president of the Starbucks U.S. stores division. She also was included as one of “Four Women to Watch” in Fortune Magazine’s 50 Most Powerful Women feature.
