2015 - New Faces!
The next five years were bittersweet as we reluctantly said goodbye to five long term employees.
Diane retired in 2015, followed by Margaret and Karen in 2017, Ann in 2018 and Teresa in 2020. While it was sad to see them go, we were happy to see them start the next chapter of their lives.
As a result, the Credit Union brought in some new faces. Sarah and Jakob started as tellers in 2015. Sarah quickly moved to reception where her sunny personality would shine the brightest and Jakob, was the perfect candidate with his expertise in IT, soon advanced as our IT Manager when Karen retired.
In 2018, Samantha and Amy were hired only a few short months apart from each other and are holding down the front line with the support of the tellers that came before them, only “a shout across the office” away.
Suzanne joined the frontline later that year and began assisting the lending department as she had a wealth of experience from her previous positions. Shortly after the pandemic hit, we were sent home to work and our dear Teresa decided this would be a good transition to retirement. Suzanne, who had been training with Teresa in lending, was promoted to the Retail Credit Manager position.
While some members may have wondered about the employee transitions, the members soon adapted and the new employees became part of the Credit Union family. Thanks to the senior employees who have done an amazing job passing on their knowledge so that the next generation of employees can provide the same outstanding service our members have come to expect, and deserve.
