Credit Union Industry Awards Recognise Leadership And Community Contribution

AUCKLAND, 2 OCTOBER 2017: Co-op Money NZ which represents 12 credit unions and 3 mutual building societies in New Zealand recognised some Members’ staff and directors at the industry annual Gala Awards at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Auckland.

Chief Executive of Co-op Money NZ Henry Lynch says the Gala dinner was attended by credit union board members and staff from all over New Zealand.

“It is great to see hardworking individuals in the Credit Union Movement honoured in front of their colleagues and peers – we have outstanding people working with our credit union members all over New Zealand and the calibre of these award recipients is a real achievement for the difference they have all made,” says Lynch.

“All of the credit union staff who have won awards tonight can be very proud that they have helped contribute to the overall success of their credit union which relies on collaboration and community focus initiatives to bring the co-operative principles to life,” Lynch added.

Bill Sinclair and John Stevenson from NZCU Auckland and Peter McKnight from NZCU South received Individual Recognition Awards for their contribution to their credit unions.

Jamie Nisbet from NZCU Auckland and Eddie Steven from NZCU South received the Credit Union Future Leader’s Awards for their leadership skills and the difference they have made to their credit unions.

NZCU South was awarded the People Helping People Award for the tangible difference they have made to their local community in recent years, including local sponsorship, scholarships, contribution to trades initiatives, and participation in KiwiHarvest, an initiative that helped redistribute over 2 million meals.

NZCU Central and NZCU Employees also received recognition for their dedication and commitment in providing enduring service to their members and their communities for 50 and 45 years respectively.

Two Co-op Money NZ Board Special Recognition Awards were also presented to Bernard Weerasinghe and Mele Hampson from ACU for their significant leadership role and contribution to ACU and the Credit Union movement in New Zealand during the recent ACU core banking migration to Oracle Flexcube, a Tier 1 core banking system.
