Last week, Unitus Community Credit Union announced some significant staffing updates:

  • Megan Snyder was appointed to Assistant Vice President of Strategic Partnerships.
  • Aaron Bledy was promoted to Director of Commercial Services.
  • Michelle Hollenbeck was promoted to Regional Mortgage Relationship Manager.

In her new role, Snyder leads community development, key initiatives such as Hispanic Community outreach and diversity, inclusion, and equity project management as well key relationships with the Urban League of Portland, Inclusiv, and Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) programming and grants.

She joined Unitus in 2017 and has more than 15 years of experience in financial service positions in all aspects of lending, including organization, servicing, and collection, as well as strong skills in project management, process improvement, and vendor management.

As Director of Commercial Services, Bledy is responsible for the rollout of small business online and mobile banking services as well as the implementation of a digital banking system for business members, thus leading to an expansion of services that will launch in 2022 featuring a small business loan origination platform. In 2017, Bledy joined Unitus as the Payments Product Manager with nearly two decades of financial services experience.

After joining Unitus in 2017 as a Mortgage Relationship Officer, Hollenbeck excelled in quality and service standards and became a top producer, consistently maintaining high production levels. In her new role as Regional Mortgage Relationship Manager, she will lead a team of dedicated professionals driving best practices and continued growth. With nearly 25 years of experience in financial services, her energy and focus to help others achieve homeownership will inspire her team to reach their highest potential.

“Unitus takes great pride in developing talented, community-minded individuals committed to the credit union mission of ‘People Helping People,'” said Steven Stapp, President and CEO of Unitus. “Megan, Aaron, and Michelle embody our mission in their approach every day. Their breadth of experience and keen knowledge of so many financial service areas will greatly benefit our members and credit union, and we are lucky to have them here to improve our internal and member-facing initiatives.”
