SRU FCU Welcomes New Senior Lending Manager

08 June 2021

We are excited to welcome Drew McDowell to our management team here at the credit union in the role of Senior Lending Manager!

Drew has come to us with over 20 years of experience in Retail Banking throughout Mercer and Lawrence counties. She started her career in finance with National City Bank as a part time teller and held various positions before being promoted to a Branch Manager with National City and PNC Bank.  She continued her career at First Commonwealth Bank where she focused heavily on business development, consumer lending, and business lending.

Drew will help the credit union to develop new loan products and services for existing and potential credit union members.  The credit union doesn’t currently offer any commercial loan products, but Drew’s hire paves the way for that to change.

During her career, Drew has been involved with various community organizations in New Castle and Lawrence County.  She is currently a member and former President of the New Castle Rotary Club, current board member of The United Way of Lawrence County, and a member of Lawrence County Women Connect.  She was a recipient of The Shenango Valley and Lawrence Counties 40 Under 40 and the Lawrence – Mercer County ATHENA Young Professional Leadership Award.

Drew also served in the PA Army National Guard for 8 years where she met her husband of 18 years.  They reside in New Castle with their two daughters. Their family enjoys camping, boating, and spending time with friends and family.  Drew says she can’t wait to become a part of the Slippery Rock community, and to make a truly helpful financial impact on the members and the community!

Be sure to say hello to her when you stop in!
