After 23 years of leading our credit union the time has come for me to move on and transfer the leadership of our organization to a new CEO. The planning of my retirement has been in the works for several months and I’ve been working closely with our Board of Directors in preparation for this transition.
Over the years I’ve lead changes to help grow, evolve and protect what’s at the heart of our existence. Although some decisions came with debate, I’ve always respected the other perspective and have strived to make it possible for more Vermonters to experience the benefit and value of belonging to a financial cooperative. I continuously believe that our credit union will only get stronger with every new member that joins.
I’ve enjoyed working with the hundreds of volunteers and employees who have demonstrated a strong commitment to enriching the lives of others. I appreciate the straightforward dialog members have shared with me over these years. I’ll miss that. We can only learn and better ourselves from that kind of accessibility and honest, candid feedback.
Your Board of Directors is now actively focused on selecting my successor who will likely be appointed by the end of this year. Thereafter, I’ll work closely with the new CEO for a limited time to help him or her transition into their new role. I’m excited for the future of VSECU and I’m confident that the next leader will inherit a great membership organization that will always be true to Vermont.
Thank you for being a part of VSECU.
