PenFed Credit Union in Tysons, VA, has launched a digital division dedicated to highlighting stories of inspiration, resilience and service. PenFed is the nation’s second-largest federal credit union with 1.8 million members and $25 billion in assets and the first credit union to have a digital story-telling team for worldwide viewers on social media.

Andrea McCarren, shown above, a nationally recognized journalist whose numerous recognitions include over 20 Emmy Awards, three Edward R. Murrow Awards and a 2018 Gracie Award for military affairs reporting, will lead PenFed Digital.

“Our team’s mission is to share stories of inspiration, resilience and service,” said McCarren, Vice President and Chief Content Officer at PenFed. “Each day, members of the military community and our credit union community live extraordinary lives. We will give them a voice and a platform to share their experiences with the world. We’ll be traveling throughout the country capturing compelling content to showcase ordinary Americans doing extraordinary things. We’ll bring our engaged online community along on our journey.”

McCarren is joined by Christopher Mullen, John Mogor and Amanda Ota, who also bring decades of news experience, Emmy Awards and storytelling talent to this new venture.

The new digital storytelling division will capture and share content that showcases the lives of service members, veterans, military families and the national defense community – PenFed’s core field of membership.
