NAFCU Announces Promotions
WASHINGTON, DC (August 12, 2013) — The National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) today announced a slate of management team promotions across the organization, effective immediately.
“As a group, these colleagues have played key roles in our growth, they have demonstrated outstanding commitment to NAFCU and our members, and they have always delivered,” said Berger. “These promotions are richly deserved, and I can’t think of a group of leaders better suited to help guide NAFCU into the future.”
Today’s announcement includes the promotion of Carrie Hunt to senior vice president of government affairs and general counsel from vice president of regulatory affairs and general counsel. Berger will maintain his role as chief advocate for NAFCU.
Hunt’s record of achievement is outstanding. Hunt has served as staff liaison to the federal regulatory agencies, such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the National Credit Union Administration. Despite an extraordinary influx in new rulemaking, Hunt has continued to incite change and commendably advocate on behalf of NAFCU’s members. In 2012, Hunt was named one of the Credit Union Times Women to Watch, for her direct, cooperative leadership style as well as her consistent contributions to the credit union community. Beyond her regulatory advocacy efforts, Hunt has worked continuously with NAFCU’s legislative department in analyzing, and developing policy issues directly impacting credit unions.
Hunt is a graduate of the University of Maryland at College Park and William and Mary School of Law. She is a member of the Virginia and Massachusetts Bars.
“I am thrilled and thankful for the opportunity to serve NAFCU members in my new capacity. I look forward to leading our dynamic government affairs team as we work to champion credit union causes and foster a positive legislative and regulatory environment for the industry.”
Other promotions include:
Steve Van Beek, to vice president of compliance from director;
Lisa Cox, to vice president of events and education from director;
Eric Miller, to vice president of information technology from director;
Katie Marisic, to vice president of political affairs from director;
Liz Santos, to vice president of marketing from director for NAFCU Services Corporation;
Susan Broaddus, to director of news services and managing editor from senior managing editor, news;
Jillian Pevo, to director of legislative affairs from senior associate director; and

In addition to the promotions, NAFCU also realigned the organization’s marketing and communications department. Going forward, the marketing department will report directly to Anthony Demangone, executive vice president and chief operating officer. The communications department will report directly to Berger.
“These changes will help us achieve even greater effectiveness and efficiency in serving our members,” said Berger. “We appreciate Karen Tyson’s contributions to NAFCU during her tenure as senior vice president of marketing and communications and wish her well in her future endeavors.”
The National Association of Federal Credit Unions is the only national organization that focuses exclusively on federal issues affecting credit unions, representing its members before the federal government and the public.
