Ascentra Credit Union CMO Named 2020 Credit Union Rock Star

BETTENDORF, IOWA – Jennifer Naeve, native of Clinton, and resident of DeWitt, Iowa is among 39 credit union professionals and volunteers named to the Credit Union National Association’s 2020 Credit Union Rock Star list by the editorial team of Credit Union Magazine.

The Credit Union Rock Stars program recognizes outstanding credit union professionals and volunteers from a wide range of disciplines who use their unique strengths to advance the mission of their credit union.

Naeve, Senior Vice President and the Chief Marketing Officer for Ascentra Credit Union in Bettendorf, Iowa, leads the marketing, training, and business development teams for the credit union and serves as a member of their senior management team.

“We knew a long time ago that Jennifer was a ‘rock star’,” said Dale Owen, President and CEO of Ascentra Credit Union. “The term encompasses her approach to everything she does in her career. Her passion, commitment, and efforts have helped our credit union grow, not just financially but organically through communication, community involvement and connection with members, staff and the industry.”

Interim CEO, Linda Andry agrees. “Jennifer incorporates the credit union culture into how we manage our credit union,” said Andry. “She’s always looking for ideas and solutions from alternative directions that challenges us to look at projects more comprehensively and to put ourselves in the position of our members, which helps us stand out amongst our peers”.

Each year this program recognizes people within the credit union movement whose unique, innovative, and creative personalities excel in their areas of expertise – and by doing so make the movement a better, more interesting place.
