Katy Slater is a Senior Vice President at Callahan & Associates. When Katy is not leading the firm’s initiatives to promote a positive culture and live out its value proposition, sheis pushing the movement’s leaders to think more deeply about what it means to be a cooperative in today’s financial services industry.
Through speaking engagements, strategic planning sessions, seminar facilitation, and more, Katy continuously widens the circle around her to ensure she — and those with whom she works — are making a positive difference in the lives of others.
Katy has worked in the financial services industry for 35 years, including a dozen years at GTE Federal Credit Union and another decade at PSCU. Her infectious energy and ability to work collaboratively with employees at all levels make her an effective resource in implementing new systems and ideas at any organization, and her experience with, for, in, and around nearly every facet of the credit union industry lends credibility to her enthusiasm.
Katy values authenticity, honesty, and fun, but a bachelor’s degree in accounting and designations as a Certified Internal Auditor and Certified Fraud Examiner are testament to her ability to work diligently for a higher cause.
A Michigan native, Katy has fond memories of growing up in a small town with a large family that included four siblings and five step-siblings. Today, she makes a hobby of supporting her husband of 30 years and her two “amazing, intelligent, beautiful” daughters. After baking, volunteering, exercising, and more, she resolutely finds time to end every day with a good book.
