On the Money
Two Banking and Finance friends land great careers at a major credit union.
While Appleton natives Aaron Nass and Adam Havel have two different careers, the Fox Valley Technical College graduates both did their internships at the same credit union and were hired full time after graduation.
Nass is responsible for opening new accounts, setting up trusts, and providing consumer loans as a member services representative for Capital Credit Union (CCU), a regional financial institution with more than 90,000 members and 23 branch locations. “I enjoy helping people organize their finances,” says the 30-year-old single father. “Fox Valley Tech taught me how to assess financial records and determine solutions for consumers.”
Adam Havel has dual degrees from FVTC in Business Management and Banking & Financial Services. As lead teller for CCU, this 23-year-old is second-in-command at his branch. “I’m the go-to person for things like daily account balancing, interviewing and training new tellers,” he says. “At Fox Valley Tech, I learned about all types of financial products and procedures as well as how the Federal Reserve works.”
Havel and Nass credit FVTC with helping them establish successful careers that they both enjoy while working together at the same branch location.
