CEW Welcomes Two New Leadership Council Members

Margaret Kephart and Tiffany Ford are new members of CEW's Leadership Council, serving the Center in an advisory capacity. 

Margaret Kephart, Senior Vice President & Portfolio Manager at Retirement Income Solutions (RIS) in Ann Arbor, has worked collaboratively with CEW for several years. In her previous tenure with TIAA-CREF, Kephart was instrumental in developing interactive retirement planning seminars focused specifically on women's retirement goals and women's career paths. She worked closely with CEW in piloting these sessions. We are fortunate to have another Council member with knowledge and interest in women's financial concerns, retirement, and the course of women's careers. 

Tiffany Ford is President and CEO of the University of Michigan Credit Union, a $495 million credit union with over 52,000 members from the University of Michigan and community. Ford became President and CEO of the University of Michigan Credit Union in October of 2011. A Detroit native, Ford attended Regina High and received both her BA in Accounting and her MBA from Michigan State University. Over the years, CEW and the UMCU have partnered on financial education programs, and the addition of Ford as a Leadership Council member expands that relationship. With her understanding of financial education and her role as a visible leader in the local community, we anticipate that Ford will be a valuable contributor to the work of CEW.
