Adler celebrates 35 years in Marshfield banking industry
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – Marshfield Medical Center Credit Union (MMCCU) President Carol Adler celebrated 35 years in Marshfield banking at the end of April.
A Marshfield native, Adler began her career at Central Catholic Credit Union before being hired as President/CEO for MMCCU in 1985.
“Directly following high school I attended UW Marshfield/Wood Co. and UW Madison studying journalism. My path changed course after meeting my future husband and also realizing I did not really like journalism,” said Adler. “I wanted to study business administration but in those days it wasn’t easy to change. So, I decided to ‘gap’ out for a time and came back to Marshfield.”
Adler started her career at Central Catholic Credit Union, which later became Central City Credit Union and then Simplicity.
Happy to have found her calling, Adler says that her 35 years have been rewarding.
She has served on numerous committees, councils and boards over the years, including the Wisconsin Credit Union League and the Wisconsin Credit Union Foundation.
Adler serves on the board of directors for Ronald McDonald House of Marshfield and maintains close ties to the local medical community – her husband, Gary, is a retired RN and her son Chris is a resident physician in internal medicine at Marshfield Clinic Health System.
“I will be retiring next year after my credit union career of 45 years,” Adler added. “It has been fulfilling to watch the credit union grow and thrive from $2 million to $71 million in assets and reserves of $115,000 to just under $6 million.”
