Jennifer McCorkle

Hiway is pleased to announce that Senior Marketing Specialist Jennifer McCorkle was selected to participate in the 2020 CUES (Credit Union Executives Society) Emerge program, a multi-faceted challenge that features online learning, peer collaboration and a business case competition.

CUES Emerge evolved from CUES Next Top Credit Union Exec (NTCUE) competition and is designed for the industry’s future credit union leaders. Only 30 emerging participants were selected to take part in the inaugural CUES Emerge.

“We are committed to supporting our associates’ involvement in opportunities to help them develop as leaders and to further their knowledge of the industry,” said Dave Boden, Hiway’s President/CEO. “Jen has been a part of our Hiway team for over 15 years and has been involved in a number of Hiway and community committees including being a charter member of our Hiway Foundation Board.  We are excited for her, her professional growth and the opportunities that will come from being selected to participate in the CUES Emerge program.”

“After nine very successful years as CUES Next Top Credit Union Exec competition, we wanted to take what we’ve learned and improve every aspect of the challenge,” said John Pembroke, CUES president/CEO. “CUES Emerge offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience with opportunities to learn, collaborate and grow unlike anything available anywhere, and it embodies CUES’ mission to bring the finest in talent development opportunities to the industry.”

There are two key phases to the program—an Education phase and a Competition phase. The participants take part in three CUES Elite Access™ Virtual Classroom courses. Concurrently, three Mastermind sessions are held, facilitated by a group of former CUES Next Top Credit Union Exec winners, finalists and industry leaders.  Following the Education phases, participants can select to enter the Competition phase. From that group, five finalists will be chosen by a judging panel and from there, a Top Three will receive an education and coaching package which includes registration to CUES School of Applied Strategic Management™ in 2021.

At the same time, the ultimate winner will be announced and named the 2020 CUES Emerging Leader. That person will receive an all-expense-paid trip to CEO/Executive Team Network™, November 2-4, 2020 in Austin, Texas.

Jen has worked in the credit union industry for over 23 years 15 of which have been with Hiway. She is highly involved with developing strategy for Hiway’s key business units as well as with branch expansion planning and rebranding initiatives. She is a founding board member for Hiway Credit Union Foundation where she helped create and launch the extremely successful Hiway Foundation Curling Event.
