As a girl, Tracey Jackson defied the stereotypes and unabashedly loved math. Her numerical bent eventually led to a credit union career, a master’s degree in finance, and, most recently, the chief financial officer (CFO) position at $650 million asset Resource One Credit Union in Dallas.
But it’s her talent for multiplication—passing on the type of career help she has benefitted from to dozens of others—that underpins Jackson’s management philosophy.
“I am not in competition with anyone but myself,” Jackson says. “I don’t want anyone to not be successful. We are all linked together.”
For Jackson, the links start in 2005, when she landed an internship at Municipal Employees Credit Union of Baltimore (MECU) during her senior year at Morgan State University.
