Marian Heckard has been a familiar face at the Aberdeen branch for more than 6 years. Her focus on member service has helped the Aberdeen branch staff set record transaction totals and assisted with modernization of staff processes.  Taking over as the Branch Manager in 2013, Marian has been an integral part of the Management team through many significant changes over the last several years. Her leadership effectively lead her team to many successes and helped contribute to her promotion to Lending Manager effective July 1st. As Lending Manager, she will help lead a very energetic Loan Department team through several key projects allowing for a better member experience.

She brings her enthusiasm to the Loan Manager position and looks forward to implementing many exciting changes in the department.

Marian has a daughter in high school and two rambunctious (if old) Great Dane dogs roaming around her house. Marian was an avid Great Dane exhibitor for more than a decade and has a passion for the breed. In fact, she admits to almost be a “crazy cat lady” for Great Danes. She sat on the board of the Great Dane Club of Western Washington and has been involved with the Dane Outreach Program focusing on fostering and assisting troubled Great Danes. She was also a cheerful Cub Scout leader.

When not working, Marian enjoys spending time with her daughter and playing with the dogs. Make sure to stop by and say hi to Marian in the Loan Department and congratulate her on her new role at Great NorthWest Federal Credit Union.
