E2808FKirsty Maher Hunter United
Hunter United employee Kirsty Maher was awarded one of four ‘Emerging Leader Tertiary/Vocational Education Scholarships’ at the World Credit Union Conference in 2014. The national award recognises emerging leaders within the Mutual banking sector and provides a $3,000 scholarship to assist with the cost of undertaking a vocational or tertiary qualification course.
Kirsty will commence a Masters of Business Administration through Deakin University in March. She says she chose Deakin because they offer high quality online courses which will allow her to continue working while studying. “I will be able to put my new skills into practice immediately, adding value to Hunter United, ultimately benefiting our members” said Kirsty who has been with Hunter United for nine years as part of the Finance team.
Hunter United’s CEO, Steve Martinelli said “The award recognises the skills, expertise and experience of our staff and is recognition of the quality of Kirsty’s work.
The Board and the Hunter United team are proud of Kirsty and support her in her on-going educational qualifications”. The award is sponsored by CGU and presented in partnership with AM Institute.
