President and CEO Erin Mendez joins Patelco Board

Patelco President and CEO Erin Mendez has been appointed to the Patelco Board of Directors. Mendez will fill the term of former board member Emily Shubert through April 22, 2022. At that time, she will have the opportunity to be re-elected to serve a three-year term.

“Erin has been instrumental in Patelco’s growth and transformation over the past eight years and we’re extremely proud to welcome her to the board,” said Peter Hanelt, Patelco Credit Union’s Chairman of the Board. “While it's common for a CEO to be on the board of a public company, it’s certainly less so among credit unions. Appointing Erin is a recognition of her unwavering commitment to improving the financial health and well-being of more than 400,000 Patelco members throughout Northern California. It’s also a result of her governance, strategic planning, and overall leadership within the credit union industry.”
