A Loaned Executive is a self-starter with potential for growth, a role model and a highly enthusiastic individual. Successful Loaned Executives are skilled in analyzing diverse challenges, problem solving, project management and teamwork, and have an interest in building a personal and professional network.

I can’t thank UW Credit Union enough for the opportunity to give back to our community by being loaned to United Way for this year’s campaign. I have grown my leadership, problem-solving, and business planning skills to take back to my employer while building a network of like-minded individuals across the county. The program offered a hands-on approach to grow both personally and professionally. This has been a challenging, rewarding, and life changing experience and I am grateful for the opportunity to make a real impact in people’s lives. I loved my time as a loaned Executive for United Way!” – Brandon Day, Branch Manager, UW Credit Union, 2018 Loaned Executive
