A Washington State University graduate, Dickinson joins STCU from Skye Strategies, her marketing and branding consulting firm. An active community and business development advocate, she has led efforts to establish the Elson Floyd College of Medicine at WSU and pass a long-proposed Central Valley School District construction bond. During her six years as president of Downtown Spokane Partnership, she helped secure nearly $3 billion in downtown development.
"Marty has earned a reputation for helping the community achieve great things," says Ezra Eckhardt, STCU president and CEO. "She epitomizes our brand promise, 'Here for good.'"
In addition to her community development efforts, Dickinson brings extensive financial industry leadership experience, including three years as vice president of marketing at Sterling Bank in Spokane, and four years as executive vice president of culture at Umpqua Bank in Portland.
She remains an active member of the Spokane Public Facilities Board, the Association of Washington Businesses Board of Directors, and the Regence Blue Shield Community Board. Washington Governor Jay Inslee recently appointed Dickinson to the WSU Board of Regents, as well.
"STCU is an organization that I have long admired for their exceptional service to their members and their community. I can't wait to be a part of such a special place," says Dickinson.
Founded by educators in 1934, STCU has more than 190,000 members, $3 billion in assets, and 23 branch locations in Eastern Washington and North Idaho. STCU honors its heritage through a strong commitment to education, including a generous tuition reimbursement program for employees pursuing college degrees.
