Destinations Credit Union Presents PREFACE Award
Destinations Credit Union presented its quarterly "PREFACE" award to Angela Becker. The award was established in 2014 for its employees who best exemplify its core values.
In conjunction with the Sandusky Group, Destinations' management and staff established its Core 4™ values: Passion, Respect (Mutual), Exceeding Expectations and Forward Thinking/Visionary – PREF.
The award was established to honor an employee each quarter who best exemplifies those values – its "ACE" of PREF. All employees were invited to nominate any other employee and a committee of staff representing all departments scored the nominees.
The award itself is a crystal lighthouse, reminiscent of one of Gerry Sandusky's favorite sayings, "Be the lighthouse, not the courthouse." In addition, the award recipient receives extra employee perks throughout the quarter.
"Angela has been an anchor at Destinations Credit Union for many years." stated Brian Vittek, CEO of Destinations. "She is a long-time favorite of the members and demonstrates her commitment to them every day."
Angela has been a Destinations employee for over 22 years. Having started as a teller, she rose through the ranks and held a wide variety of positions. Positions included electronic payment processor, insurance processor, plastic card processor, automobile title processor, loan counselor and business development. Currently she serves as a Loan Officer and is responsible for escrow analysis on Destinations Credit Union's mortgage portfolio.
