Branch Manager Corner
Name: Beth Vos
Watt Avenue Branch Manager
Beth is one of our expert branch managers, having joined First U.S. in 1990. After a brief stint as an Accounting Assistant, she quickly transitioned into an important member-focused position as the leader of our Cottage Way location, serving the employees and family members of the Bureaus of Reclamation, Land Management, Indian Affairs, and other federal agencies in the Cottage Way federal building. In 2011, the branch relocated to Watt Avenue.
We recently sat down with Beth and started by asking about her favorite part of the job. “The fulfillment I get from seeing members’ gratification after receiving a solution to their financial needs, whether it is informing them of a service or product, or offering a solution to relieve financial stress,” Beth answered.
Making a difference for her members, Beth focuses her team on superior service by encouraging open dialogue, and having fun with staff shout outs to celebrate service successes. Beth concluded, “I believe our branch provides excellent service because of our team’s satisfaction with their jobs, the working relationships we have with fellow team members, and their pleasant working experiences with our members."
