I am excited to be joining Montana’s Credit Unions this week! I’ve worked in the credit union movement for more than 25 years and am so proud of the work you all do in serving Montanans every single day. The staff here at Montana’s Credit Unions is among the best in the country, and they are dedicated to serving you. I am humbled and proud to be joining this great team of passionate leaders.

My family and I (pictured above) live in Bozeman and have been here many years. My wife Carla and I have been married almost 32 years (we met in Yellowstone National Park in college). My son Zach is a manager at Big Sky and entrepreneur; my daughter Erin is a travel nurse currently in Denver; and my son Kole will be a sophomore at Belgrade High School where he plays soccer.

I look forward to getting to know you all as I transition into the role. I plan to visit all of Montana’s credit unions in the next few months. Please reach out any time with questions, feedback, or ways we can serve you.

Finally, I extend a HUGE shout-out to Tracie Kenyon for her leadership and passion for Montana’s credit unions the past 22 years. Congratulations on your “graduation,” Tracie! We will be seeing you around the state and our movement across the country. 
Speaking of chocolate, how would you rate your level of affection for it?
I'm basically obsessed.
It's not my favorite, but I won't say no to it.
I avoid it like I'm allergic to it.
