February 7, 2022 — After 43 years of working for Horizon Credit Union, executive secretary Laurel Pangburn has announced her retirement.
Since the credit union’s early years, Laurel has been a passionate and deeply loved part of Horizon. She has been a part of the credit union’s growth and has seen Horizon flourish to where it stands today. When she started working for Horizon in 1979, named Kaiser Federal Credit Union at the time, the credit union had only two branches and approximately 12 employees. Now, Horizon has over 400 employees and 28 branch locations across four states.
Laurel is truly part of the fabric and culture at Horizon. She has worked in a variety of roles from accounting to member service and even as a branch manager. In her 43-year tenure, she has met members, volunteers and employees with kindness, graciousness and the smile of a friend.
