Something she calls “Bucktown Pride” will be flying on high octane this weekend for Stacey Martin. Technically she becomes Stacey Martin tomorrow when she weds the love of her life, Dave Martin and they begin a new chapter in her beloved hometown of Buchanan. But, the pride is already soaring, as Stacey has been promoted to the role of Vice President of Marketing for Honor Credit Union, elevated from her service as Brand Manager there.
Stacey, Dave and their family of Cy, Tala and Kaliana still call Buchanan home, and she is an active leader in her hometown where she serves as Secretary of the Buchanan Area Chamber of Commerce and never misses an opportunity to show that Bucktown pride while cheering her kids on from the stands. When she’s not guiding Honor’s Marketing team, Stacey enjoys hiking in the mountains, hunting in Michigan’s great outdoors, attending Gospel City Church, and going on adventures with her family.
An accomplished podcast host, she has lived the mantra of her podcast, “Hustlin’ in Heels,” having advanced rapidly in her career, armed with her bachelor’s degree in History from Grand Valley State University and a master’s degree in Education with a focus on Curriculum and Instruction. Her background includes experience in the civic education realm in both Lansing and Washington, D.C, a decade of teaching social studies at the secondary education level, a venture into real estate sales, and side-projects as a syndicated columnist and blogger as well as the podcast. She is also a member of the 2019 Class of the Moody on the Market 40 Under 40 young professionals in Southwest Michigan.
As the Vice President of Marketing, Stacey Martin leads and supports Honor’s Marketing team in creating and distributing educational and entertaining content to provide value and clarity in the world of finance. She strives to establish Honor as the leading financial resource in communities across the state, saying, “There’s a reason we stick a smiley face on everything that is Honor, we truly want to help and believe happiness is both a noble pursuit and a valid measuring stick.”
Her deep experience with Honor’s marketing team made her a logical choice for the promotion, as she says, “When you believe in the mission and the people behind it, encouraging others to Come Be Part of It feels like a genuine invitation rather than a marketing tagline,” and adds, “I’m proud of how we tie our core values into everything we do at Honor, and I look forward to continuing the work that was started in 1934 to support our communities and serve the financial needs of our members. Telling the Honor story is both fun and rewarding because it’s composed of real people achieving their financial dreams.”
Honor Credit Union serves more than 85,000 members across the State of Michigan, backed by the driving force of providing solutions for financial success and giving back to the communities it serves. For more information, you can call 800.442.2800, or visit online at http://www.honorcu.com
