CUInsight / Marlene Schwartz

“You begin to grow exponentially when you understand yourself and your limitations” - Marlene Schwartz 

Welcome to episode 62 of The CUInsight Experience podcast with your host Randy Smith, co-founder of CUInsight.com. This episode is brought to you by our friends at CO-OP Financial Services. CO-OP is your trusted payment processing partner whose mission is to drive the credit union movement forward.

For this episode, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Marlene Schwartz at the recent CUES Symposium in Hawaii to discuss credit union planning, collaboration, and leadership from the perspective of a board member and volunteer. Marlene has the distinction of being the first board chair/volunteer to be featured on the podcast. She is the board chair of State Department Federal Credit Union and the board chair for the National Association of Credit Union Chairmen. 

Marlene and I discuss how the National Association of Credit Union Chairmen is helping to connect and educate credit union board leaders. She also speaks about her experiences with State Department Federal Credit Union, and why the credit union was so quick to lend their support to Filene's Center of Excellence for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. 

Additionally, listen as Marlene shares her thoughts on the evolution of the credit union industry and board succession planning, as well as State Department FCU’s goals for the next year. Marlene also chats with me about her unique career trajectory from the U.S. State Department to her role as credit union chairwoman, while also discussing the credit union movement and her leadership style.

Marlene has worked most of her life in a male-dominated field, and has achieved success beyond her wildest dreams. She has accomplished so much and shares so many life lessons on this episode that you can’t miss! I hope you enjoy this great episode.
