Profili started as a bookkeeper at her credit union. During her tenure as CEO, which began in 2001, the credit union grew to $70 million in assets and more than 10,000 members. Williams became a volunteer in 1990, and chairman in 1992. When he found out the credit union lacked access to cash and ATMs, he changed the culture of the credit union to promote access and social responsibility and encouraged the first U.S.-United Kingdom partnership. During his tenure as chairman, the MECU of Baltimore grew to $1 billion in assets from $325 million and to more than 95,000 members from 52,000.
