“Lorraine has long been a proven leader within our organization, demonstrating a strong work ethic and extensive knowledge of Credit Union 1 and our industry,” said President/CEO Tom Newins. “Her past experience working with security issues and helping members who have been impacted by fraud made her a natural choice for this expanded role within the credit union.”
