Servus Credit Union has hired a local branch manager for the first time in it's history.
The Coleman Servus Credit Union recently welcomed Stephanie Panisiak as their newly appointed Branch Manager. With 15 years of dedicated service at the credit union, Panisiak’s promotion is a personal milestone and a significant moment for the community.
Panisiak’s journey with Servus Credit Union began in 2008 when she joined as a part-time Member Service Representative. Over the years, she worked her way up to a full-time position. Following her work in this role, she transitioned into the position of Financial Advisor.
Panisiak’s dedication and commitment to Servus Credit Union did not go unnoticed when she returned from maternity leave in June 2023. By the end of July, she was promoted to the Branch Manager position. Her promotion marks a significant milestone for the credit union as she is the first branch manager with roots in the community.
“I’m super excited,” Panisiak stated, “There’s been a lot of different leaders in this role from all different areas of Alberta, and this is the first time since this building was built that a person with the roots that I have is in this role at this branch.”
In her new role, Panisiak aims to build upon the credit union’s longstanding tradition of personalized service and community involvement. She explained how Servus Credit Union takes pride in treating members as more than just numbers, going above and beyond to understand their unique financial needs and life events. Stephanie’s ties to the community and her familiarity with its members’ needs position her well to carry out this task.
“We don’t just look for a transactional relationship,” Panisiak emphasized, “We want to help you plan from the day you open your bank account to significant life events like marriage, having children and estate planning. It’s like a family relationship, and we’re here to support you every step of the way.”
Panisiak’s commitment to serving her community extends beyond her new role at Servus Credit Union. She and her family have chosen to make Coleman their home, raising their two young daughters in the area.
With her strong ties to the community, Panisiak plans to stay in her position for the long term, ensuring continued personal and community-focused service at Coleman Servus Credit Union.
“I’m excited to be a strong role model for my daughters and that their mom and any woman can do anything they set their minds to,” said Panisiak.
