Santa Rosa, Calif - Julie Parsons has been promoted to the position of training and development manager for Redwood Credit Union (RCU). In her new role, she will evaluate and improve individual and organizational performance, develop and deliver training solutions, and ensure training is aligned with the strategic goals of the credit union.

“Julie has a proven track record of designing and executing learning solutions that engage users and drive business results,” says Kristina Derkos, senior vice president of people. “She’s an effective leader, skilled at managing strategic initiatives and cross-functional teams. We’re thrilled to have her on our team.”
