CU*NorthWest, a 100% credit union owned cooperative CUSO, announced that Kinsey Hiett, currently Associate Vice President, has been promoted to Vice President, effective immediately. Hiett will be responsible to oversee daily operations of CU*NorthWest’s Liberty Lake headquarters and manage many of the firm’s contract and remote resources. “As CU*NorthWest continues to aggressively expand market-share, I am excited to take on the challenges of managing our firm in this growth period. Being here in the very beginning years of CU*NorthWest and contributing to building the foundation of our firm has been personally rewarding and I look forward to more leadership responsibilities in the future,” said Hiett.

Greg Smith, CU*NorthWest CEO added: “Kinsey is uniquely qualified for this position and we are fortunate to have been a part of her leadership development for much of her career. She has had direct management responsibilities for nearly every department at CU*NorthWest and is well positioned with that experience to oversee and direct day to day operations.”

Prior to joining CU*NorthWest, Hiett worked in data center operations for another credit union core processing provider. She joined CU*NorthWest as a customer service representative in 2009. For nearly a decade, she has moved through management of not only customer service, but training and education, conversion/delivery, and most recently, led a business development team to the strongest sales year in corporate history.
