Prodigy Names Industry Veteran Karey Neal Chief Operating Officer


Salt Lake City, Utah – Prodigy, a leading core data processing and cloud infrastructure CUSO, is pleased to announce that it has hired Karey Neal into the newly created role of Chief Operating Officer.

Neal began her credit union career in 2003 as Director of Operations at Statesman FCU in Boise, Id., which at the time was running Prodigy Core. Two and a half years later, she was named the credit union’s CEO, making her the youngest credit union CEO in the state by 17 years and the youngest female credit union CEO in the state, as well. From 2007 to 2009, she also served on the Prodigy board of directors. She left the industry in 2015, but was lured back by the opportunity to help build Prodigy into an even stronger organization.

“I feel blessed for the third time in my career to be right where I should be,” said Neal. “My passion is talent engagement, talent recruitment, building teams and organizational development.” In her role as COO, she will be responsible for project management, support, operations, HR and education. One of her first orders of business will be to oversee a 30% increase in staff.

“I’ve known Karey for more than a decade and know firsthand what a force she can be,” said Prodigy CEO Amber Harsin. “We’re very fortunate to be able to leverage not only her skill and experience, but her passion and drive, as well. Karey is definitely an impact player.”
