Superior Choice Credit Union (SCCU) announces the promotion of three employees to Vice President level:
- Mike Baker – VP Information Technology
- Julie Lupa – VP Mortgage Lending
- Danielle Severson – VP Collections & Fraud
Baker started with SCCU six years ago as a Network Administrator, elevating through the ranks to his new position as Vice President of Information Technology. He brings years of experience to the organization in both security and network management while providing instrumental changes to core processing and information technology structure.
“We are proud to promote Mike to the VP level. He has brought a heightened awareness to security measures within the organization, led multiple core conversions, and continues to lead operational changes that move the needle,” says Ben Altonen, Chief Financial Officer.
Lupa has been in the mortgage industry since 1996, spending 25 years serving in a variety of roles from originating, processing, underwriting, closing, and post-closing. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to her new role as Vice President Mortgage Lending. In her new role, Lupa will oversee the credit union’s first and second mortgage operations including sales, processing, and servicing.
“Superior Choice Credit Union is in the middle of such an incredible transformation, with Julie as a large part of that. With her knowledge, experience, and expertise, our members will have products, services, and speed when coming to Superior Choice Credit Union. We are excited to welcome Julie to her new role and can’t wait to see the transformative approach she brings to our members and employees,” said Chief Operating Officer, Shane Asbel.
Severson joined SCCU as a Call Center Representative six years ago and worked her way up through the Collections Department, ascending to her new role as Vice President of Collections and Fraud. The Fraud Department is new to the Credit Union, led by Severson to help members stay safe financially.
“Danielle has continued to grow within the Superior Choice Organization, now overseeing two critical areas that help the credit union and members avoid and recover losses. She is truly an asset to the team, and we are thrilled to announce her promotion,” states Altonen.
