MCCU’s Paulette Hill Retires After 30 Years of Service

On December 12, Missouri Corporate Credit Union (MCCU) hosted a retirement party for Paulette Hill, director of Correspondent Services. MCCU’s conference room quickly filled with the many people—credit union representatives, colleagues, past coworkers—touched by Hill’s more than 30 years of service in the credit union industry.

“Mixed is the best way I can describe the joy we feel at the start of a new chapter in Paulette’s life and the sadness we feel in losing a comrade and leader in our organization,” says Kitty Gray, MCCU president/CEO.

Hill’s career in the credit union industry began when she took a position at St. Louis Telephone Credit Union. She has always been involved in the operational side of the credit union movement.

“Paulette has touched the lives of so many people in so many ways,” says Sandy Bladdick, MCCU senior MSR. “Her kindness and sincerity will be missed by all. She has had such a positive impact on my life. I thank her for all the help and knowledge she has passed my way.”

In her time, Hill has seen the evolution of how credit union members’ transactions have been communicated—from the thermal print fax machine to biometrics for ACH processing and other Internet-based products and services

“Hopefully, I have made a difference in the lives of the members we serve and I know that MCCU’s commitment to quality service will be one way to carry on my legacy,” says Hill. “I will miss the people, our members and my peers, most of all, but I look forward to the new experiences and challenges that come with retirement.”

During the retirement party, Gray read well-wishes from credit union employees, including Mike Haggerty, CFO of Kansas City Police Credit Union.

“It’s been a real pleasure working with you,” writes Haggerty. “You’re an exemplary leader possessing a high level of personal integrity that has contributed to our trust in MCCU. I’m truly grateful for your service to our credit union throughout your career. You always had our best interest in mind, and your hard work helped up grow and succeed.”

Hill’s last day was Monday, December 15, 2014.
