Featured Employee: Branch Services Manager/ Training Coordinator
This is part of a series that focuses on CPFCU employees.
My name is Debbie Zielinski and Iím the Branch Services Manager/ Training Coordinator at CPFCU. Much of what I do involves learning different processes and systems then providing training to my fellow employees at the credit union on how they operate. Iíve been establishing and expanding this role for the past seven years, but Iíve been with the credit union for over thirteen! I started my career here as the Data Processing Manager. As time passed, I noticed a need for more in-house training and I decided to pursue that path. Even though I had never done anything like this before, I feel like Iíve found the perfect fit-I truly love what I do! Part of what makes my job enjoyable is that Iím an explorer. I love finding out how and why things are done, which of course makes it easier to train others. I think my co-workers appreciate that I take their questions seriously and will always find them answers and solutions.
The other part of my job that makes it so rewarding is the feeling of family. People care about each other and are very supportive. In my role I interact with every single employee at some point, so itís great to know that I work with such a wonderful group of people!
If youíve met me or spoken with me on the phone you may have guessed that I didnít grow up in Chicago. Everyone always wants to know about my ďaccentĒ. For the record: I am originally from Tennessee and I still get season tickets for Tennessee football and basketball every year! My husband humors me even though heís a born-and-bred Chicagoan. We both are big sports fans in general.
Iím looking forward to being a part of the new opportunities that are on the horizon for employees and members!
Debbie- Thank you for your enthusiasm and tireless dedication!
