Harrisburg, PA (June 20, 2019) – Leanna L. Meiser, Senior Manager of Workplace Productivity and Technology for The Hershey Company, was appointed to the Board of Directors of PSECU, Pennsylvania’s largest credit union, during a Board Executive Session on April 11. Effective May 1, Meiser’s appointment as Director follows her service to the organization as Associate Director since 2016.
“PSECU’s Corporate Governance Program, which our Board of Directors is responsible for upholding, consists of five key elements: strong ethics, accountability, communication, risk management, and strategic visioning. Having had the opportunity to work with Leanna as an Associate Director since 2016, it is abundantly clear that she embodies all of these characteristics and that she is truly committed to serving the best interests of PSECU, its employees, and its membership,” said PSECU Board Chair Jodi Lynne Blanch. “Leanna’s strong occupational expertise, as well as her perspective as a young, female professional, are also valuable assets to our Board, as our collective skillsets and diversity are harnessed to guide the growth, stability, and future success of the credit union for all members’ benefit.”
At The Hershey Company, Meiser leads the workplace productivity and technology learning and development of over 4,000 employees including staff in marketing, sales, innovation, supply chain, and financial systems. She previously served as the lead of training and capability building for global marketing, Sales and Marketing Manager for The Hershey Experience Retail Attractions, and Corporate Social Responsibility Manager.
Meiser earned a Bachelor of Science and Master of Business Administration from Elizabethtown College. She also holds a Master of Education from Penn State.
“On behalf of PSECU’s more than 450,000 members and our 900 statewide employees, I’d like to thank Leanna for her ongoing commitment to the success of our credit union,” said PSECU President George Rudolph. “Leanna’s guidance, supported by her unique professional background and strong familiarity with PSECU, will surely be of great benefit to the management of this very successful institution. We congratulate Leanna on her new role and look forward to her continued leadership.”
Meiser fills a position on the PSECU Board of Directors that became available upon the retirement of longtime Board Director Kathleen A. Salmon who served in the role since 1990.
“Through my involvement with PSECU over the past three years, I’ve seen first-hand how the credit union is making a positive difference in the communities we serve,” said Meiser. “It is a great honor to be appointed to our Board of Directors and to have the opportunity to continue helping our membership reach their financial goals. PSECU is Banking on a Difference, and I couldn’t be more pleased to be a part of that commitment.”
