Hear from your 2019 Winner

David Jones, Chief Marketing Officer, WECU
“First, it was an honor to be nominated by my team. Beyond that, I was pleased to be part of an event that also highlighted the accomplishments of so many other deserving marketing professionals, all whom do what they do – not for the hardware – but for the love of the credit union industry and their craft.

For me, receiving this award is a reflection on my team and everyone pulling together to do great work. It’s also a reflection on the type of leadership we have at WECU. Our mission is to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our members and a distinction such as this reaffirms that we’re all in for the right reasons, top to bottom.

For anyone thinking about applying for the MPOY Award. Go for it! The process encourages a lot of thoughtful reflection as to why we do what we do, and what we achieved. Regardless of the outcome, the journey getting there is a reward in and of itself.”
