More Information

When Breton started in banking, she didn’t know how to complete a deposit ticket, let alone open an account. But by taking notes and reading every manual, policy, and procedure her credit union had to offer, she established herself as an irreplaceable employee (her positive attitude and self-motivated nature helped, too).

Breton became a branch manager in 2013, after just five years in banking, and has received successive promotions over the years, which have moved her to other locations with varied asset sizes and staffing. This year, she was promoted to vice president - retail director, where she oversees four branch managers and their locations. As a woman in the financial industry – where her bosses were all men – Breton had a desire to connect with more female young professionals. That’s how she got involved with the Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce Women’s Success Network, where she was able to meet women from all different paths of life and professions.

She gives back to the community through her work at the $474-million Millbury Federal Credit Union, specifically through the Trunk or Treat event, where employees transform their vehicles into crazy themed displays, as they distribute treats to children. 

What movie encapsulates your personality? “Brittany Runs a Marathon” Growing up, I was never an athlete and loathed activity, but I’m now training for my fourth half marathon.

What Central Mass. historical figure do you most admire? Clara Barton – What she accomplished as a woman in the 1800’s is extraordinary, all fueled by a passion to help others.

When do you want to retire? Financially, my goal is to retire when I’m 63; however, I do love my job, so I can definitely picture myself extending that timeline.
