Emily Griffin, our Supervisor of Compliance and Accounting, has recently been highlighted in a Country News Network article by Wes Lind and Patrick Smith. We are honored to present their article here as well, and we are grateful to have such a dedicated woman as a member of our staff.

 

Griffin’s winding career path started as an accounting assistant with GROMARK fresh out of college. Two years later, she jumped to COUNTRY as an accounting trainee and spent the next 15 years working in the Agency Programs, Financial Analysis and Cost Accounting areas.

“I truly enjoyed making personal connections,” she said. “I realized how each department is unique in their daily business operations, but together we all work as a team.”

In 2013, she transitioned to the IAA Credit Union (IAACU) to become supervisor of Accounting and Compliance.

“My husband and I had been banking with IAACU since my GROWMARK days, and we loved the membership experience,” said Griffin. “When I saw they were offering a leadership position, I felt it’d be a great opportunity to join such a dynamic team.”

Her experience with change has helped her as a leader.

“It’s important to keep improving and developing yourself, your employees and those within your influence,” said Griffin. “With an inside look at multiple organizations, I’ve seen how products and services are developed, and our structures are built and operated. I’ve also built relationships with the people who work in our Home Offices and the field to serve our clients/members.”

As a veteran of three organizations, she knows firsthand how similar each really is.

“Each wants to help our clients/members be financially secure and advance their well-being. We truly are a Family of a Companies. Just like a family, each individual component is a little unique, but we all come together to help and support one another. I’ve always been proud to work for the Family of Companies.”
