CEO and President of Educators Credit Union wins National Outstanding Chief Executive Award

MT. PLEASANT, WI (November 14, 2022) — Congratulations to Linda Hoover, Educators Credit Union’s CEO and president, on being named the 2022 CUES Outstanding Chief Executive. This national award is presented annually by CUES (Credit Union Executives Society) to one credit union industry professional who has rendered exceptional service and has made outstanding contributions to strengthen their credit union.

“From the teller line to the corporate office, every time Linda makes a decision or has a vision, she is always putting members at the forefront,” said Shannon Huot, chief experience officer at Educators. “She is always thinking, will this help our members? She’s honest, business savvy and really cares about members and staff.”

Hoover has been with Educators for 35 years and has served as CEO and president for five years. Throughout her time, she has been dedicated to making Educators the trustworthy and reliable financial institution it is today.

“As a leader, Linda understands the power of knowledge,” said Joseph Brazgel, chief information officer at Educators. “She never hesitates to share her vast credit union experience while representing our core values.”

Hoover truly leads Educators with ingenuity, efficiency and care. She champions the member experience, advocates for financial literacy, invests in advanced technology, encourages Educators employees, and leads by example. At any time, you may see Hoover working on the frontlines as a teller, helping in the lending center or taking calls in the call center.

Hoover received a special virtual recognition and award plaque during the award ceremony in October.
