Jordan Webb, a senior financial services officer with State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU), was named the Piedmont Chapter’s CUaware Protégé on Thursday, December 6, 2018. Webb will go on to the CUaware Protégé Competition finals at the LAUNCH Conference Jan. 31 – Feb. 1, 2019 in Charlotte, NC.
Webb and fellow candidates Darien Bolden (Charlotte Metro FCU), Jasmine Davis (Carolinas Telco FCU), and Ruth Fujino (Family Trust FCU) represented their respective credit unions at the Piedmont Chapter event at Truliant Federal Credit Union in Charlotte, NC. Each contestant made a five-minute presentation in front of a judging panel and credit union professionals in attendance. The contestants were also scored on a one-page essay that they submitted as part of the application process.
Webb joined SECU in 2013 and aspires to “become the best SECU employee possible.” One of his goals is to complete his Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation and continue to grow at the credit union. He is a graduate of East Carolina University with a Master of Science in Applied Resource Economics. Some of his other achievements include being an accredited financial counselor and volunteering in the United States Peace Corps.
In his spare time, he enjoys reading, writing, math and participating in competitive running.
He joins Columbia Chapter Protégé Amy Coggins, Lowcountry Chapter Protégé Cierra Faubert, Upstate Chapter Protégé Meaghan King, and Tarheel Chapter Protégé Barbara Mojica Arzate in the completed lineup of finalists moving forward in the competition.
