EAST LANSING, Mich. — MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) is pleased to announce that its Executive Vice President of Member Services, Lea Ammerman, was awarded the Professional of the Year Award by the National Association of Federally-Insured Credit Unions. Ammerman was recognized at NAFCU’s 51st Annual Conference and Solutions Expo on June 20, 2018.


“Lea is dedicated to constant improvement, executing strategies and initiatives to benefit our members,” said April Clobes, MSUFCU’s President/CEO. “She works tirelessly to make a difference in the lives of our members and our employees.”


Ammerman leads the member-facing areas of MSUFCU, including 18 branches, Call Center, eServices, and Specialty Accounts.

“I am honored to receive NAFCU’s Professional of the Year Award,” said Ammerman. “My passion for MSUFCU and the Credit Union philosophy of people helping people is instrumental in every project I lead and every interaction I have with members and employees. It is our mission and my guiding focus to provide superior service to members, and I am grateful to work among such dedicated employees who share that same vision.”


MSUFCU has a national reputation for excellence and has received several top industry and workplace awards. For the sixth year in a row, MSUFCU was named as a Top Workplace in the large employer category by the Detroit Free Press. Last year, it was also recognized as one of CU Journal’s Best Credit Unions to Work For, a Best Workplace for Women by Fortune Magazine, and Outstanding Credit Union of the Year by the Michigan Credit Union League.
