Credit Union Rockstar Joins United Federal as VP Marketing

Half a dozen years ago she was already tabbed as a Credit Union Rockstar, and now her star is rising again as she has been selected by United Federal Credit Union for the position of Senior Vice President of Marketing.

Kaylee Ganus takes the reins to champion the corporate image throughout United’s six-state footprint by providing leadership in marketing, advertising, public relations, community relations, and product management.

United Federal’s President & CEO Terry O’Rourke says, “I am delighted to welcome Kaylee to Team United and to the leadership team,” and adds, “Kaylee is well-versed in the credit union industry and philosophy, and brings a fresh approach to marketing with a commitment to enhancing the member experience.”

Ganus has been a part of the credit union movement since 2013, originally joining the financial industry in public relations—receiving the Credit Union Rockstar for Public Relations and Social Media Strategy in 2014. Since then she has expanded her areas of expertise to include marketing, corporate communications, and product development.
