Sean Watt, Patricia Kelly will help steer STCU as vice presidents

SPOKANE, WA (April 21, 2016) — STCU has two new vice presidents. Sean Watt joins the credit union as vice president for retail delivery, while longtime employee Patricia Kelly has been promoted to vice president for information technology.

Watt will oversee strategy and operations at the credit union’s 18 branches in Eastern Washington and North Idaho.

A University of Idaho graduate, he has 23 years of sales, lending and branch administration experience with financial institutions, starting with Key Bank in the 1990s. Most recently he was senior vice president of the Idaho region for Bank of the Cascades.

Watt has a long record of community service, most recently on the executive boards of the United Way of Deschutes County (Ore.) and the Boys and Girls Club of Central Oregon.

He said he was drawn to STCU’s emphasis on people, including members and employees.

“Our branch teams will continue to focus on our promise to members: to understand their personal and business financial goals and challenges, and to help them achieve the goals,” Watt said.

A graduate of Park University, Kelly has 28 years of technical leadership experience, joining STCU in 2000 as the information systems manager. Most recently she was STCU’s director of enterprise security and data management. Before joining STCU, she helped direct information systems operations for the U.S. Air Force.

Her record of community service includes positions on the Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Inland Northwest’s board of directors and Gonzaga University’s advisory board. She’s a Meals on Wheels volunteer.

Kelly said she wants to provide innovative, intuitive technology to improve members’ experience.

“I love STCU, because we focus on making our members’ financial lives better by offering the right products and striving to save them money,” Kelly said.
