Megan Freshour

Incubation Director at Filene Research Institute

All the way from Florida, Megan Freshour brings her sunny personality to the Filene team as our Innovation Director.

Megan joins Filene with a long standing passion for the credit union industry. Starting as a teller at CFE Federal Credit Union while she returned to school she continued to build her career and later became the Assistant Manager of Member Services, Manager of Member Services and finally the Regional Director of Youth Outreach focusing on building her credit union’s future by engaging youth.

After crashing the GAC with Filene’s Cooperative Trust and joining iin 2017, her interest in Filene was piqued. But she found her true calling once she heard about the expansion of Filene’s incubation program at big.bright.minds. Megan was ready to make a difference on a national level.

In her role, Megan is most excited to help build a community of credit unions willing to test ideas and programs that will make real change for the cooperative finance industry. Processes are her jam and she looks forward to using her skills to help streamline our incubation process.

When you meet Megan don’t forget to ask her which year she won “Fastest Pizza Maker” at the Pizza Hut Olympics, the latest outdoor adventures her dog (Officer) and husband (Jack) are enjoying, and whether or not she was finally able to use her antique sled during the Wisconsin winter.
