Members 1st Announces Retirement of EVP and Promotion of VPO

Members 1st Credit Union announces the retirement of Judi Bartholomew, Executive Vice President, effective July 1, 2021. Regional Manager Megan Littler has been promoted to Vice President of Operations.

“We greatly appreciate Judi’s dedication and reliability in overseeing the operations of the credit union for many years, and navigating a myriad of transformations during that time,” said CEO Teri Davis. “She made a lasting impression on the credit union, sharing her joy for her work and building strong relationships with staff and members.”

Bartholomew began her career with the credit union on September 25, 1995 as a member service representative, and later held the titles of Loan Officer, Branch Manager, ROP Instructor, Area Vice President, Vice President Operations, and Executive Vice President. She served as EVP for five years as part of her nearly 21-year career with Members 1st. Judi oversaw the expansion of the credit union’s network to include a branch in Anderson, California and a payment center and second branch in Chico, California. She was awarded the Grace Bell Memorial Award in 2007 for her service and dedication to the businesses and community of Anderson.

Judi’s successor, Megan Littler, has served Members 1st since 2016 and STAR Community Credit Union from 2010 to 2016.

“We are pleased to welcome Megan to our senior management team, as she brings more than a decade worth of credit union experience in operations, lending, asset recovery, and member services that will shape our strategy and execution as the most convenient financial institution in Northern California,” said Davis. “Megan has transitioned seamlessly into her new role and we look forward to her future accomplishments.”

Members 1st thanks Judi Bartholomew for her dedication and achievements. Since her retirement, she can be found catering to her lovely grandchildren, traveling with her devoted husband, and fishing the coastline between Gold Bluff Beach and the Klamath River.
