The Exceptional Women's Alliance (EWA) is proud to recognize and congratulate Christy Soukhamneut, Exceptional Awardee from Cohort 11, for her transition to Chief Lending Officer at UFCU. Her new chapter commenced in August 2023, where Ms. Soukhamneut became responsible for overseeing the consumer lending organization which is comprised of one of the largest mortgage and direct auto lending teams in Central Texas. Additionally, she will provide leadership to the Business Banking/Commercial Lending group.
Prior to UFCU, Ms. Soukhamneut served as Senior Vice President and then Managing Director for Texas Capital Bank's Mortgage Finance group. Previous to that role, she served as Senior Vice President, Chief of Staff and Director of Mortgage Strategic Initiatives at Flagstar Bank. Additionally, she has served in many other executive roles, but learned the business from the bottom up, starting in a family-owned broker shop.
"Congratulations to Christy as she embarks on her new endeavor! Her dedication to building financial well-being and establishing accessible programs in her community is why she is a sought-after leader in the banking industry," said Larraine Segil, Chair & CEO of EWA.
