Thank you, Susan, and congratulations!” said Jason Zeider, Chief Digital Officer of TFCU. 

Ellen Yacovone, Chief CUSO Officer of TFCU said, “It has been my honor and great pleasure to work with Susan the past 12 years.  Thanks to Susan’s leadership, TFCU is not only a top-rated credit union financially, but also one that actively gives back to the community with both dollars and hours.”

Stansberry played a critical role in the development of the Multicultural Empowerment Center, which TFCU will be opening in November of 2021 as a community center focused on providing financial education and employment resources. “It has been a great privilege for me to serve the membership of TFCU and to help guide the strategy of meeting the needs of our members and the greater community at large.”, said Stansberry.
