Mortgage Loan Officer
Capital Credit Union
The One to Watch award is given to a Young Professionals Network member who goes above and beyond, not only within their place of employment, but also within the organization and the community as a whole.
Eric Miller, originally from Mandan, North Dakota, has been living in the F-M area since attending college at NDSU, majoring in agricultural economics. Having been with Capital Credit Union for just under two years, he is involved with the YPN as a member of the Professional Development committee and has been a featured presenter at two Networking to Business lunches focused on the importance of financial wellness for young professionals.
Outside of the YPN, he can be found volunteering his time with the Fargo Moorhead Realtors Association, the board of directors with Alpha Gamma Rho, the Home Builders Association and most recently, he was awarded the “Extra Mile Award” from the HBA for his volunteerism and support of their organization.
Along with his exemplary community and professional involvement, his nominator and supervisor, Jim Schaefbauer, states that, “While Capital Credit Union may be small in footprint and market share in Fargo at this time, we are big on initiative, enthusiasm and creative ways to have a positive impact on Capital Credit Union’s growth and contributions to the local communities and the members we serve, and no one exemplifies those traits more than Eric!”
It is clear that Eric strives to be an active member of the community he calls home, but when he is able to find some time to himself, Eric enjoys reading and outdoor activities including fishing, hunting and golfing.
When asked if there has been a piece of professional advice he has received that really stuck with him, Eric quoted Zig Ziglar, saying “You don’t have to be great to start something, but you have to start to be great.”
