Cornerstone Announces Employee and Manager of the Year
Monday, March 21, 2016 7:00 AM

Annually, Cornerstone Credit Union League asks its staff to vote for the Employee of the Year and the Manager of the Year. For 2015, the winners were Paula Harris and Chad Stanislav.

PAULA HARRIS | Employee of the Year

The Cornerstone Business Center wouldn’t run nearly as well as it does without its essential staff, all of who have been with Cornerstone for more than 30 years. Paula Harris, customer care/production coordinator in the Business Center, has been with the company for 34 years.

"I especially would like to thank my boss, Willie Skeins, for the nomination," said Harris. "For her to take the time to recognize me, makes it all that much more special to me. It has been an honor to work with her and so many others in this organization over the years.  I feel blessed to be with the same company all this time and am thankful for the many opportunities it has presented to me. It takes all of us to make it work, and I am just one small piece of the puzzle that makes this league and our member credit unions what they are today."

Cornerstone's Jon Gorman, SVP communications and outreach, noted Paula's service, leadership, and can-do attitude. "Having watched Paula during the past year and all she had to do, with Willie and James, to prepare for the Business Center’s move to Plano while continuing to provide best-in-class service was remarkable," he said.



CHAD STANISLAV | Manager of the Year

Credit Union Resources Vice President Chad Stanislav has been with the company since late 1993. He is responsible for leading three groups:  Financial and Technology Resources, Shared Compliance, and Remote Transactions Resources. Collectively, he has 41 employees between the three groups. 

"Each service group is uniquely different and plays a tremendous role in assisting credit unions," Stanislav says. "My role is to keep business moving, employees engaged, and evaluating processes."

In his usual modest manner, Stanislav attributes his success to the freedom to build and create a workforce dedicated to credit unions. "With 20-plus years at CU Resources, our employees are what allow us to build service groups that rival practically anyone," he said. "Our strength is in our employees."

SVP Human Resources Susan Looney said, "I'm happy to say that Chad Stanislav really deserves this award. His staffers regularly mention to me that they really enjoy working for him. He is fair, provides coaching, and gives them the latitude to perform their jobs. Chad has mentioned many times that his employees come first, even before his own needs. He’s very conscientious about what he does, and he considers how his actions and decisions affect others."
