Oct. 2 2012 – NAFCU General Counsel and Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Carrie Hunt has been added to Credit Union Times’ list of Women to Watch – influential, forward-thinking women who are reshaping the future of the credit union community.
Hunt is described in the Women to Watch article as "The Communicator." As CU Times points out, Hunt represents NAFCU before federal regulatory agencies, helps develop and implement the association's regulatory policies and, among other things, manages litigation for NAFCU. Asked about her philosophy, Hunt offered two. "One is to stay positive and not get mired down by the minutia. The second is to not have a philosophy – what worked yesterday doesn’t work today so you have to be flexible." (See more.)
“This honor comes as no surprise given the invaluable guidance that Carrie has provided to NAFCU and its members as we navigate the increasingly challenging regulatory and legislative environment,” said NAFCU President and CEO Fred Becker. “She is a staunch advocate for credit unions with the administration and federal agencies, including Treasury, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and NCUA, and she is ever-vigilant about initiatives that create greater burden for credit unions.”
Hunt joined NAFCU in 2004 as an associate director and was promoted to director of regulatory affairs in 2005 before being named to her current position last year.
CU Times' Women to Watch program was previously limited to those working at credit unions. Hunt was included in a new category of honorees, women who serve the credit union industry, on Monday. She was one of nine women profiled in the article.
NAFCU Board Members Jeanne Kucey, president and CEO of JetStream FCU, and Debra Schwartz, president and CEO of Mission FU, have also been named Women to Watch.
