Melissa Ott has been named Executive Vice President/CFO of Pelican State Credit Union, second-in-command to the CEO/President.

Instrumental in the success of Pelican and its financial growth, she began her career at Pelican over 20 years ago while studying Accounting at Louisiana State University in 2000. As she took on countless different roles at the credit union, she consistently demonstrated humility, integrity, and innovation.

"She is driven to make Pelican be the best credit union for our members and the best place to work for our team," shared Pelican CEO/President Jeffrey K. Conrad.

Her reputation of success goes far beyond the walls of Pelican as she has been recognized by the Livingston Parish Chamber with a Women's Leadership Award, the Credit Union National Association as a Rock Star, the Baton Rouge Business Report for being a Best Place to Work, and other publications. Melissa is routinely asked to speak at national conferences and provide mentorship to individuals and companies in all industries.
