OMISTA CEO Announces Retirement

I have some news to share with you. I will be retiring from my position as OMISTA’s Chief Executive
Officer effective December 31, 2017. I have thoroughly enjoyed this job and the professionals I work
with. After 26 years in the Credit Union system, and 14 years prior in the banking and education
sectors, I’m ready for a new challenge. I feel it is an opportune time in my life to embark on new
pursuits and interests.

My 13 years with OMISTA have been extremely rewarding and I am pleased with the growth and
advancement of our Credit Union system during my tenure. Our values, based on honestly and trust,
resonate with our members and the public now more than ever. I’ll be moving on to new pursuits and
interests knowing that your Credit Union is managed by a team of talented and skilled professionals. I
look forward to the remaining 6 months in my current role working with them as we continue to evolve
and grow.  Our CEO Search Committee hope to announce my replacement by late fall.

I thank OMISTA’s Board of Directors for their direction and collaboration throughout the years and our
employees for their passion and belief in providing honest financial advice. Although I am happily looking
forward to my retirement, I will genuinely miss being part of the OMISTA team. Many thanks to you, our
members, for your trust and desire to be a part of something bigger … a better way to bank.
