Barney Herrera

Barney Herrera

VP of Strategic Partnerships

With Seattle Credit Union Since: 2017
Hobbies: Traveling, fantasy football, and cooking.
Favorite Food: Filipino Food
Favorite Financial Tip: Start an emergency fund for unforeseen events. Research from the Federal Reserve found that too many families are just one emergency away from a financial disaster.

Bio: Barney Herrera is proof that you can always go home again—and do important things. After eight years as a grad student and professional in New York and Las Vegas—where he found himself negotiating against people for large employers—he’s excited to be back in Seattle. Now he works to connect with people, building partnerships that help Seattle Credit Union provide relevant and innovative banking services. Barney’s network is an “everybody network,” not a “good old boys network,” and it helps… well, everybody.

Many Seattle Credit Union members have lived the immigrant experience. So has Barney; as a boy he even translated for family members. A Bachelors and two Masters degrees later, he uses that experience to find partners that align with Seattle Credit Union’s mission and vision. First and foremost Barney seeks to understand rather than to be heard. Out in Seattle’s various communities, Barney and his team have learned their unique needs—especially that personal finance is almost always at the root of problems in underserved and unbanked groups. Then he can bring cutting-edge, inclusive banking products and creative solutions to partner organizations and their clients. That’s why Seattle Credit Union can show up where financial institutions traditionally don’t, but are sorely needed.

Now that Barney’s back in Washington, he’s enjoying the outdoors and the rain—he missed the Pacific Northwest’s natural beauty in New York and felt “dried out” in Las Vegas. His two boys are enthusiastic athletes (soccer and baseball) and Barney and his wife travel all over to watch their games. Between sports and being out in the community, Barney is first and foremost built to lead and to support, and he’s hoping to have as big an impact in the region as he is with his kids.

Lindsay Taplin

Lindsay Taplin

Business Development Supervisor

With Seattle Credit Union Since: 2008
Hobbies: Traveling, snowboarding, and hiking.
Favorite Food: Cheese and ice cream
Favorite Financial Tip: It's never too early or late to start saving for retirement.

Bio: Lindsay Taplin and her husband are the parents of two very young children. She’s found that like motherhood, her job as business development supervisor requires her to focus on the needs of others—in this case, Seattle Credit Union’s partners, for whom she provides tools they need to succeed.

Lindsay manages a department that ensures that Seattle Credit Union connects with partner companies and organizations—partners that fit Seattle Credit Union’s mission to bring prosperity to every community. Often that results in her staff meeting members face-to-face away from a branch; that’s when they share financial tools and information as part of the financial education curriculum Lindsay has developed.

Working with people to achieve success comes naturally to Lindsay. Her psych degree from the University of Washington provided her with real-world clinical experience with people facing challenges. And she met many Seattle Credit Union members face-to-face as a branch representative. Both as Business Development Supervisor and out in the field, she’s gladdened that what she does makes a difference in people’s lives.

The Seattle-area native might be found snowboarding or hiking on the weekend. Lindsay has also enjoyed traveling. She won’t commit to any particular trip as a favorite, though she especially enjoyed Iceland’s landscape with glaciers and waterfalls and the energy and chaos of India. Being able to relate to people from different backgrounds and cultures is probably why Lindsay does her job so well and is helping Seattle Credit Union make a difference here in the Seattle area.
