2 CA Leaders Named ‘CU Rock Stars’ by Credit Union Magazine

Two innovative and creative professionals from credit unions in California have been honored with Credit Union Magazine’s 2023 “Credit Union Rock Stars” recognition out of 25 nationwide!

The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues would like to congratulate Jennifer Audette (CEO of POLAM FCU) and Fidel Gonzalez (CEO of First Imperial CU) for participating and being honored by CU Magazine’s 11th consecutive year of Rock Star recognitions.

The Rock Stars program recognizes credit union leaders and volunteers from a wide range of disciplines who are using their unique strengths to advance the mission of their credit unions. While holding varying roles, living all over the United States, and working at credit unions with wide-ranging asset sizes, each Rock Star excels and makes the movement a better place.

This year’s class, representing 25 individuals, was selected for its exceptional creativity, innovation, and passion. These Rock Stars were profiled in a special digital edition of Credit Union Magazine here — including all winners, their stories, and their profiles.

“Prepare to be inspired and motivated by the 11th-annual class of Rock Stars,” says Bill Merrick, Credit Union Magazine deputy editor. “There’s much to admire about these 25 credit union professionals and their compelling stories of generosity, ingenuity, and concern for others.”
