Susan Streifel, CCE, president/CEO of Woodstone Credit Union, will retire from the company June 30.

Streifel joined Woodstone Credit Union — then called Weyerhaeuser Community Credit Union — as vice president in 1996 and was promoted to executive vice president in 2000. In 2002, she was named Woodstone’s president and CEO. Under Streifel’s leadership, Woodstone has grown to $100 million in assets and 11,000 members.

As CEO of Woodstone, Streifel is well known in both the Federal Way community and the credit union industry as a champion of community service and credit union advocacy. In Federal Way, Streifel has served on the boards of the Greater Federal Way Chamber of Commerce, Advancing Leadership and Valley Cities Behavioral Health. In 2014, she was named to the Blue Ribbon Panel that provided a critical analysis of the operating pro forma, financing plan, construction estimates and economic impact to the city of Federal Way for the new Performing Arts and Events Center.

In February, Streifel was inducted into the Credit Union House Hall of Leaders at the Credit Union National Association Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C. The Credit Union House Hall of Leaders recognizes credit union leaders who have made a significant impact on the credit union movement at the local, state or national level.

In her work to further the credit union movement both at home and abroad, Streifel has served on committees and boards of directors for local, state and national credit union organizations. Streifel spent 10 years on the CUNA board of directors. In 2015, Streifel was named board chair.
