Jin Gwak, AmeriCU Credit Union’s Chief Digital & Information Officer, recently joined the board for Leadership Greater Syracuse (LGS), a nonprofit organization that offers a yearlong civic-leadership training program.
“LGS is honored to have these high-caliber professionals serve on our board of directors,” LGS Executive Director Pam Brunet said in a statement. “These individuals are leaders within their organizations, and they epitomize the LGS mission by taking an active role in the community.”
Gwak, who was a member of the LGS Class of 2015, joined the credit union in 2013. In her role as Chief Digital & Information Officer, she puts a renewed emphasis on infrastructure, making internal technological advancements and external improvements to better the member experience and propel AmeriCU toward a digitally inclusive business model, foundational improvements that pave the way for future progress and innovations.
“I’m excited to join the board of such an impactful organization,” says Gwak.. “It’s an honor to be given the opportunity to share the leadership skills I gained through LGS with the lens of my own professional background. I greatly look forward to continuing my involvement with LGS in this new capacity.”
Gwak has been elected to a three-year term and plans to lend her expertise and share her experience as a woman in a C-level position to enhance the training LGS provides its graduates.
“AmeriCU Credit Union takes great pride in supporting the communities in which it serves and providing professional development opportunities for its team members,” said Ron Belle, AmeriCU President and CEO. “Jin’s position on LGS’s board of directors perfectly combines these two goals.”
