Kevin Sherry
Kevin  Sherry I am pleased to submit my application for consideration for a position on the Audit Committee for iQ Credit Union. I have been a member of iQ Credit Union for 20 years and in that time my wife and I have started a family, immersed ourselves in this community, and, along with our three children ages 10, 13 and 15, have been exploring all that Clark County has to offer.
I am excited by the opportunity to join the Audit Committee because I feel strongly about the value iQ brings to the community and I believe I can be a valuable asset given my professional experience.
I recognize that credit unions offer a vital opportunity to provide financial services to the communities they serve in a fair and equitable manner. For this reason, it is crucial that iQ Credit Union continue to fulfill their promise of accessibility, community connection, superior service, and security. As a member of the Audit Committee, I would support the leadership and staff in charting a healthy and innovative course, as well as provide honest feedback and offer accountability in all aspects of those commitments.
Professionally, I am currently the Sr. Director of Treasury for Standard Insurance Company. My areas of expertise include capital planning, cash forecasting, debt structuring, payments, bank relationship management and corporate governance. My career has provided me with extensive experience in leadership, employee development, strategic planning and budgeting as well as exposure to the various areas of import that iQCU has identified as critical to their success.
Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to the opportunity to serve in any capacity.
