WATERLOO (AP) A top executive for the largest credit union in Iowa has announced plans to step down.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports 61-year-old Jean Trainor said Thursday she’s leaving Veridian Credit Union to work with her 29-year-old son. She said it’s the right time to start a new career.
Trainor’s son is unable to speak because of a rare genetic disorder, but he communicates via a keyboard. The pair plan to work together to help others learn to type and communicate.
Trainor, chief executive officer and chief inclusion officer, has worked for Waterloo-based Veridian Credit for more than 30 years. It was formally known as John Deere Community Credit Union.
The newspaper reports Trainor has not yet set a firm date for stepping down.
