I will be resigning my position as CEO effective December 4th. Although I’m excited to be joining my family's business and look forward to this next chapter of my life, I am very emotional about leaving Mills42—my professional "home" for the past 17 years.
Over these 17 years, the last 10 as CEO, I have built the most beautiful professional relationships with our members. This truly has been my reason for working so hard. Nothing is more gratifying to me than to see our members receive the best possible care and attention. And, nothing is more rewarding than to ensure you are well on your way to establishing smart banking habits and fulfilling mid- and long-term financial goals.
I have worked with the most amazing credit union staff, and the team at Mills42 today is my absolute favorite we've had to date. In fact, I often refer to them as the credit union version of a Navy Seal Team because they are the best in the business—smart, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and as focused on helping our members build from here in every way they can as I am.
Within the next few weeks, we’ll be introducing you to our new CEO. The Board of Directors has done the most fantastic job of identifying an experienced, talented, enthusiastic credit union professional. I have no doubt whatsoever that our members will continue to be in the best hands.
While it’s time to pass the baton onto fresh new leadership, please know that I will continue to root for the future of Mills42. That is why I am very honored to be taking a seat on our Board of Directors.
More than anyone could ever imagine, Mills42 has captured my heart. I love my team, our members and our fantastic volunteer Board of Directors. And words cannot express how much I will miss it.
