Marielle Richie

Marielle Richie

Education Coordinator
Gerber Federal Credit Union

Fremont, MI

Marielle has been with Gerber Federal Credit Union since February 2016. Well, actually, she started with them in 2007 when she was still in high school as a part-time Reception Clerk during the summer. Since then, Marielle has completed her High School graduation, four years of college that resulted in a degree of Bachelor of Business Administration with a Major in Human Resource Management, University Honors College Graduate, and four years working in a branch for another West Michigan credit union. All of which helped prepare her for the Education Coordinator position, and a future, at Gerber Federal Credit Union. In 2017, Gerber signed on with CUNA’s Creating Member Loyalty (CML) program and Marielle is the key training facilitator for this initiative as well as a member of the Guiding Coalition. She actively participates in the CML Community, CPD On-Line Community and is a new member of the HR/OD Community. She is also a member of the Michigan Credit Union League’s Trainers Listserv, the League’s HR Listserv and participates in the Trainers Roundtable that is offered by the Employer’s Association of West Michigan. Marielle is the future of Human Resources at Gerber. She is learning all aspects of HR, and then some, as she continues to grow. Marielle has the knowledge, passion for credit unions and the credit union movement, along with the skills and abilities to take Gerber into the future. She not only has the knowledge of HR behind her, but is developing a strong operational background that will certainly serve her and the credit union to a great extent as she continues to grow into future positions within Gerber.
