We are very excited to announce the latest addition to the team and our new CFO Branda Gilmore! Branda may be a familiar face to many of you, as she has been involved with many credit unions in the Rocky Mountain region for years. Let's learn more about her (hint: lots of doggies).
"I am very excited to be a part of the CU Service Network team.
I have many years of credit union experience which started at Denver Community Credit Union in the accounting department. With a lot of hard work and a boss who gave me opportunities, I worked my way up to the Chief Operating Officer. I then got the CEO position at Colorado United Credit Union. This came with many challenges but we were able to overcome them. After 5 years we merged the credit union with Premier Members Credit Union which gave our members a lot more branches and services. I stayed with Premier for five years as the Interim CEO and President/COO. I had the responsibility for twelve branches and all corporate real estate. I then went to Partner Colorado Credit Union for a year and a half as the EVP. At this point it was time for a change and I decided to start my own business. This focused on helping several credit unions on many different projects for the past couple of years. I really enjoyed that aspect which is why this position at CU Service Network is such a good fit for me.
From a personal aspect, I have many passions. I am married and have two children.
My daughter is 24 and married. She has a little one on the way (I am excited to be a grandma). My step daughter is 14. I feel very blessed. I love to travel, scuba dive and snowmobile.
I also love the outdoors, hiking and golfing. I spend a lot of my weekends in Steamboat.
I have three dogs: a black lab named Jagger, a long haired dachshund named Gizmo and a French bulldog named Phoebe.
I am very excited to continue to get to know everyone."
