Angie Miller, President/CEO, Emporia State Federal Credit Union
HCUA’s Professional of the Year awards illustrate the people helping people philosophy every day. Recipients have selflessly given their talent to support of credit unions. Their time and effort have improved people’s lives, enriched their communities and demonstrated loyalty to the credit union movement.
Angie Miller was hired in 1987, promoted to assistant manager in 1992 and took the helm as president/CEO in 2002. Under her leadership, the credit union has grown from $30 million to $125 million in assets. In addition, it added a new full-service branch in 2009 and an administration office in 2021.
During her tenure, she grew the staff from less than 10 to over 30. Angie invests in each individual. Of the current employees, many have grown within the credit union - five of the seven members of the management team began their ESFCU career in some sort of teller role. Her impact extends past staff - she is deeply connected with the membership and has insight into meeting their needs.
Angie has always advocated for credit unions, and she has personally contacted local, state, and federal legislators regarding laws/policies affecting credit unions. She also encourages ESFCU staff to stay involved -- four ESFCU employees attended Kansas Day at the Capitol this past year.
Angie’s contributions to members, employees, and the Emporia community will be felt for generations.
