The CUNA Lending Council presented its 2016 Phil Greer Award to Gayle Gustafson, vice president of lending at Rivermark Community Credit Union in Beaverton, Ore.
Named for the late Phil Greer, senior vice president of loan administration for State Employees Credit Union in Raleigh, N.C., the award recognizes a Council member who exemplifies the leadership, passion, and commitment Greer brought to the lending profession.
“In Gayle, we see a resolute, savvy lending leader reminiscent of Phil Greer,” says Bob Stowell, CUNA Lending Council Chair and senior vice president/chief strategy officer at Firefly Credit Union in Burnsville, Minn. “Professionals like her are what separate the credit union movement from other financial services options, and we are honored to present her this award.”
Gustafson has worked in credit unions for 34 years. She oversees Rivermark Community’s consumer, mortgage, and business lending, as well as collections and compliance.
