HARRISBURG, PA (November 9, 2022) – Belco Community Credit Union, President & CEO, Amey Sgrignoli has been selected by American Banker as one of its 2022 Most Powerful Women in Credit Unions.
“The inaugural Most Powerful Women in Credit Unions honoree list recognizes the women who are driving innovation and inclusion in this very unique segment of the financial services industry,” says Daniel Wolfe, Content Director at American Banker. “These are proven mission driven leaders who value their members, employees and positive workplace experiences as much as their business goals.”
Nominations for the program were open to any women leaders who are primarily employed at a credit union. Applications were read by a selection committee of American Banker staff members and judged on qualities such as leadership, teamwork and personal initiative.
Amey tirelessly serves the credit union movement through her work at Belco and beyond. She serves on the board of the Credit Union National Association, as well as CrossState Credit Union Association serving Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Other professional board involvement includes Cumberland Area Economic Development Corporation (CAEDC), Shippensburg University College of Business Advisory board and formerly the Community Depository Institution Advisory Committee (CDIAC) Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank, Philadelphia, Pa.
Sgrignoli’s leadership at Belco has led to tremendous growth in both membership and asset size. A sharp
focus on technology and member service keeps Belco competitive with a strong dedication to employee
development and education.
“Our mission is to help people better their lives. We unleashed every talent and resource we had during COVID and continue to put people first, profit second. Over the past year, we grew our asset size, continued to keep our employees safe and kept our smallest businesses in business. We didn’t change our growth projections; rather, we believed more strongly in our mission: believing in every person, every dream, every time. That’s a challenge I happily embrace,” says Amey.
