Peggy Brendlinger, director of business development at Tri County Area Federal Credit Union since 2002, announced her retirement effective January 31, 2014.
For the past twelve years, Peggy Brendlinger has supported and promoted Tri County Area Federal Credit Union within our community. Her relationships with local businesses, car dealerships and school districts, were instrumental in the growth of the credit union. Her tremendous work ethic and achievements have helped to make Tri County Area Federal Credit Union what it is today.
"I would like to congratulate Peggy on her retirement and wish her health and success in the next phase of her life. Peggy was an outstanding representative of the credit union and will be missed not only at TCAFCU but throughout the region," said Andy Pistoria, CEO/President of Tri County Area FCU.
Peggy has been serving on several non-profit committees, including, YWCA - Tri County Area (2002-2014); Soroptimist International of Pottstown (2003-2011); Salvation Army (2004-2008); Miller-Keystone Blood Center (2004-2014).
She has been dedicated to raising funds for Designing 4 Hope and volunteering to help "hands on" with the bedroom makeovers sponsored by the credit union. Her efforts are a true display of the credit union philosophy, "People Helping People", and were essential in earning the credit union the 2013 Dora Maxwell Award for Social Responsibility.
Additionally, Peggy has been a member of the following organizations within our community; BIE-NARI, Tri County Area Chamber of Commerce, Upper Perkiomen Valley Chamber of Commerce, and SpringFord Chamber of Commerce.
"I have met outstanding professionals, role models and mentors along the way. I had the pleasure of meeting people in our community who have inspired and encouraged me both professionally and personally to give back to the community in which we serve. For that, I am very thankful," says Peggy. "My wish is to make tomorrow a better place for those I love."
In her retirement, Peggy is looking forward to spending more time with her family, which includes her husband, Craig, five daughters and twelve grandchildren. She will continue to operate Ringing Dale Christmas Tree Farm & Gift Shop, a local business she owns with her husband. In addition, she plans to continue her volunteer work within in the community and take some time to enjoy her hobbies, which include golfing, gardening, painting and sewing.
She also has plans to travel and see more of the world!
