Join KCCCU at our May luncheon where we continue our series on our best assets – our employees! Shari Storm will speak on: Recruit, Retain, Mentor and Motivate.
During her tenure at Verity, the credit union was awarded multiple ‘best places to work’ awards both locally and nationally, and maintained an outstanding Glass Door rating. Shari has consulted with companies around the country on how to manage people to their highest potential. More than one employee has followed her from one place of employment to the next. Many of her former employees have become managers and executives in their own right. Additionally, Shari mentored MBA students at Seattle University for almost ten years. Some of her students went on to be executives at companies such as ING, Taiwan Mobile, and Boostinsider. Companies such as John Deere, McDonalds, and Costco Wholesale have purchased her book for their management teams.
Shari spent 16 years as an executive at a Seattle credit union, where she oversaw marketing and IT.
Her proudest accomplishments at Verity Credit Union included being named an Innovator of the Decade by Net.Banker, heading up the successful Verity Mom campaign, and participating in Filene’s prestigious i3 program.
Her first book, Motherhood is the New MBA: Using Your Parenting Skills to be a Better Boss was published by St. Martin’s Press. With almost 20,000 copies sold, it has been translated into Mandarin and purchased for publications in four countries. The book has received tremendous press, including Time and Redbook magazines, Martha Stewart’s radio, BusinessWeek online, the Costco Connection and the cover of the Metro News New York, to name a few.
Shari has been named a Woman of Influence by CU Times. She has been featured in American Banker, Credit Union Journal, CU Times, Credit Union BUSINESS, Credit Union Management, and The CEO Report.
She is now the CEO of Category 6 Consulting, which specializes in developing strategy with a strong focus on culture, marketing and fintech.
Shari received her undergraduate degree from University of Washington and her MBA from Seattle University. She is also a graduate of the three-year CUES CEO Institute.
Shari lives in Edmonds, WA with her three young daughters, her movie-making husband and a dog named Cedar.
