Team growth in Q1 2023

LAKEWOOD, Colorado (April 25, 2023) – To aid in supporting and sustaining Aux’s new client growth, the CUSO added a new team member in the first quarter of 2023 as well as issued several promotions. The compliance services team welcomed Barbara Silva as compliance specialist I. When added to our existing team members, Barbara’s 14 years of experience with credit unions results in a total of 180 years of combined experience (and that’s just our compliance team). We feel very fortunate to have Barbara join us.


With Aux recently surpassing 50 employees, our management team would like to take a moment and appreciate the team’s hard work and dedication to the credit union movement. We believe that these changes will help us to achieve our goals and continue to thrive in the years to come. Aux is pleased to announce the following changes in our organizational structure:



Alan Bergstrom has been named Chief Marketing Officer, and Gaye DeCesare is now Chief Compliance Officer. Holla Walker succeeded Diane Parham as Chief Financial Officer, effective April 1, when Diane assumed the role of President/CEO.



  • Patty Simons, VP of Accounting
  • Michael Giacalone, VP of Accounting
  • Jason Clarke, Senior Compliance Manager
  • Oscar Dixon, Controller
  • Monica Williams, Manager of Learning and Development


The Aux suite of collaborative back-office services includes full-service accounting and CFO-level consulting services, as well as full-service compliance and training designed for small and mid-sized credit unions. One of the reasons credit unions choose Aux is because of our team’s depth of experience. To learn more about our team, visit:
