I am so excited to feature my friend and WPO colleague Julie Causey, Chairman Emeritus of Western Bank. Julie inspires me with her commitment to excellence both in her personal and professional life. After the sale of Western Bank, Julie has dedicated her efforts to board work and a new love of CrossFit. Check out the feature below and read how Julie succeeds by building great teams and “just doing the work.”
“Just three years ago, Julie successfully led the sale of her family’s 100-year-old bank. During her 12 years as chairman, Julie built a team of phenomenal executives and used their expertise to leverage the talents of the bankers and employees. “Our goal was to have the whole thing be intact, to sell the impact and legacy of Western Bank so it could move forward in big, bold ways,” says Julie. Since the sale, Julie pours her professional energy into the boardroom, including HealthEast, in which she is heavily involved on the Executive Committee and as Chair of the Audit and Finance Committee.
What you might not expect is that Julie commits that same intensity to her health, and is focused on mastering CrossFit — an intensive proprietary strength and endurance regimen. Through her work in the gym, she’s built new muscles in her body and life. What most people wouldn’t realize is this buttoned-up banker could kick your ass in the gym.”
