Redwood Credit Union welcomes new Petaluma Branch Experience Manager

SANTA ROSA, CA (April 18, 2022) — Redwood Credit Union has hired Johanna Szostak as branch experience manager of its Petaluma branch. In her role, Szostak is responsible for overseeing member service, staff development, and daily branch operations, as well as partnering with local businesses and community organizations.

Szostak joined RCU in 2002, and has since been promoted six times, moving from teller to member services, assistant branch service manager, and most recently branch experience manager of the Mendocino Avenue location.

“When members walk into our branches, we want them to know we’re here for them—even in ways they don’t expect,” said Deirdre Thompson, senior vice president of member experience. “Johanna brings strong industry knowledge and an understanding of local communities that will give our members the exceptional service they expect from us.”

She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in history and a certificate in management from Sonoma State University. She’s a former ambassador for the Petaluma Chamber of Commerce and a graduate of Leadership Petaluma.
