U.K. CU Exec Receives Royal Warrant
LONDON (6/13/13)--Marlene Shiels, the chief executive of Capital Credit Union Ltd. in Edinburgh, Scotland, has received a Royal Warrant from England's Queen Elizabeth.

Shiels is a Certified Credit Union Development Educator. She completed the National Credit Union Foundation program in 2000.

Royal Warrants of appointment have been issued for centuries to tradespeople who supply goods or services to the United Kingdom monarchy.

Specifically, Shiels has been appointed credit union consultant to Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.

A year ago, News Now reported on the Duchess' visit at Capital CU, where she praised credit unions' work to increase financial inclusion (serve the unbanked) and money management skills in disadvantaged communities (News Now May 14, 2012).  And this past May, the Duchess made news when she became a member of London Mutual CU in Peckham, England (News Now, May 17, 2013).
