The National Credit Union Foundation aligns staff to increase credit union engagement and involvement

The National Credit Union Foundation has announced a staff transition that will see three current employees take on exciting new roles with an increased focus on demonstrating the impact of Foundation programs and growing the number of Foundation supporters.

Danielle Brown has been named the engagement director and will lead the Foundation’s engagement and programmatic efforts including the two additional engagement staff. Also serving as a member of the Foundation’s Leadership Team, Brown will foster and deepen relationships with key constituencies within the credit union system to raise awareness of the Foundation, its work and services and develop pathways for solicitation of support to the Foundation and to demonstrate the value of the Foundation through outreach. Brown has held a variety of senior leadership roles with the Foundation; most recently serving as the national program director. 

Andrew Johnson has been named the engagement senior manager. In his new role, he will seek to understand credit union needs and expectations through a consultative approach. Working with others in engagement, Johnson will also explore needs-based opportunities to cross-sell Foundation programs and services. Johnson joined the Foundation in 2015 as the national program manager working extensively with the Foundation’s experiential learning programs for credit union staff while also serving at the Foundation’s master trainer for the Enhanced FiCEP Program.

Jenni Speth has been named the events and donor experience senior manager. A key function in this new role will be Speth’s management and oversight of the Foundation’s signature fundraising event, the National Credit Union Foundation Dinner Presenting Herb Wegner Memorial Awards. This annual event, held in conjunction with the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference, is the Foundation’s single largest fundraising event. Other responsibilities will include operating the Foundation’s enterprise fundraising databases and interfacing with the Foundation’s Wegner Nominations Committee and Wegner Awards Selection Committee to select each year’s celebrants.
