    RALEIGH, N.C. - American Banker announced today the naming of Leigh Brady, State Employees' Credit Union (SECU) president and CEO, to its annual list of the "Most Powerful Women in Credit Unions." This initiative shines a spotlight on the brightest, most forward-thinking individuals in the credit union industry and expands American Banker's recognition programs to celebrate the women leaders who are driving innovation, catering to underserved communities, and guiding the future of financial services.

    Launched in 2022, the Most Powerful Women in Credit Unions is part of American Banker's continued coverage of the progress in diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout financial services, and expands on their mission of supporting, empowering, celebrating, and advancing women in the financial industry.

    "Receiving this recognition alongside so many prominent leaders within the credit union industry is humbling and quite an honor," said Brady, who was named by the SECU Board of Directors in June 2023 to lead the member-owned cooperative, becoming the first female to hold the position. "I fell in love with the Credit Union over 36 years ago - our mission and our people. I'm overwhelmed by the amount of support I've received from within SECU and outside of our organization. It is a privilege to lead the nation's second largest credit union and I remain committed to our heritage, mission, and values while innovating to meet the changing needs of our members."

    "On behalf of our Board of Directors, we offer Leigh our heartfelt congratulations," said Mona Moon, SECU board chair. "She has been a valuable and integral part of the Credit Union for so many years and has a unique understanding of our mission and our members.
