Each year Finance & Commerce honors the Top Women in Finance in Minnesota. Of each year’s honorees, a small number are chosen to receive the award for a second time. These outstanding honorees are inducted into the Top Women in Finance Circle of Excellence, and the 2019 class is one of the largest in the program’s history.

Selected for the Circle of Excellence this year include Mary Hansen of Mayo Employees Federal Credit Union.

Susan M. Palen, Mayo Employees Federal Credit Union, and Rachael Reiling, Spire Credit Union were among the first-time honorees.

Finance & Commerce’s Top Women in Finance honors program recognizes women who are making an impact not only in their professions but also in their communities in Minnesota. An outside panel of experts reviewed the nominations and helped to select the honorees.

Several hundred people attended the annual event to recognize the honorees last week at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis.

A magazine profiling the women also will be published. For more information about the Top Women in Finance program, visit the events page at or contact Kelsey Broadwell at or 612-584-1534.
