Employee Profile – Gustavo R.

Length of Time at Arizona Federal: 6 years

What are the different jobs you’ve held?
I started out as a teller in 2013 and have been a membership specialist and a training mentor. In 2017, I became the service manager for the Glendale Branch, then in March of 2019, I moved into my current position at the Operations Center.

Where is one place you’ve always wanted to travel?
There are so many on my list, it’s hard to pick just one! But if I had to choose, it would be the Maldives.

What are some of your hobbies?
Anything Ariana Grande! I love to travel to new places. I am a big foodie, so I’m always on the lookout for new places to try! Love to watch Big Brother – it’s my FAVORITE show. I watch the Canada and the U.S. versions.


Employee Profile – Ramona K.

Length of Time at Arizona Federal: 10.5 years

What are the different jobs you’ve held?
I started with the credit union during the Great Recession and was inspired by how committed the organization is to taking care of our members. I’ve been in five different positions during my time here – the majority of the time I’ve worked in reporting and analytics from either a portfolio management, risk, finance and now marketing perspective. I would say all of them have been very rewarding for different reasons. I love what I do now as our Marketing Analyst. I am part of great team that listens to what our members have to say, and we use the information to enhance our products and services.

Where is one place you’ve always wanted to travel?
I’d love to travel more in general. I’d like to take a tour of Italy, France and Germany for the history and architecture.

What are some of your hobbies?
I love dancing, yoga, movies, photography and modern architecture. And of course, my adorable Chihuahua, Patience.
