Last month, Marla Marsh marked her 15th anniversary as president and chief executive of the group that represents Kansas credit unions.
For 31 years she has been an advocate of the industry for the Kansas Credit Union Association and other state credit union trade associations.
But if you ask Marsh, 59, what one of her proudest accomplishments has been in her three-decade-long credit union career, she’s going to tell you financial literacy.
“The partnership that we have with the state treasurer’s office and bringing that (financial literacy education) into the schools, that was probably an important one for me,” she said. “Being a former teacher, I really liked getting that established and continuing that.”
Marsh started her working life teaching 11th- and 12th-graders about economics, accounting, business, English and law. The Marietta, Ohio, native earned a business and education degree from Ohio State University.
“A lot of it is because we have stuck with what is tried and true. And we have pretty stable leadership, which has worked very well.”
