MADISON, Wis., and WASHINGTON October 5th, 2020 – Ben Bauer of Marshfield has been named among 39 credit union professionals and volunteers as a 2020 Credit Union Rock Star by the editorial team of Credit Union Magazine.

The Credit Union Rock Stars program recognizes outstanding credit union professionals and volunteers from a wide range of disciplines who use their unique strengths to advance the mission of their credit unions. This year’s winners were selected for their exceptional creativity, innovation, and passion.

Bauer is the Vice President of Awesomeness (Marketing) at Simplicity CU and Exclamation Services, (a Credit Union Service Organization founded by Simplicity CU) in Marshfield, Wisconsin.  His story appears on Credit Union Magazine, a website published by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA).

“We’ve been witnessing first-hand the impact that credit union employees are making during the coronavirus pandemic,” said Ann Hayes Peterson, vice president of publishing at CUNA and editor-in-chief of Credit Union Magazine. “This year’s class of Credit Union Rock Stars elevates their commitment and compassion to members, community, and their own staff during this trying year.”

“Truly, I don’t think there could be a better time to be a part of the credit union movement than these past six months,” said Theo Curey, president of Credit Union Solutions at Fiserv. “There have been easier times for all of us, but few that have so magnified the spirit of comradery and service that are at the center of this industry. This year’s class of Rock Stars has a lot to do with that.”

Sponsored by Fiserv, Credit Union Rock Stars will be profiled in a special issue of Credit Union Magazine.
