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.
