Kenton, Ohio – Sarah Wirbel of Kenton, Ohio has recently been named the Board President of Quest Federal Credit Union.
The Quest Board held their annual election of officer at their June meeting and Wirbel was unanimously approved to assume the Board’s top leadership role.
Sarah will be replacing Richard “Dick” Wilcox who served as President since 2008.
“I felt it was time to begin the transition to new leadership of the board while I am still active in my role as a board member to help train and coach Sarah” commented Wilcox.
“Dick has been an amazing leader of our Board and true mentor and friend over the years. As any great leader does, Dick believed it was best for our organization to hand off the leadership role while still serving the board as a volunteer to provide Sarah and Quest with the best opportunity to succeed in the future. When Dick became our President we had two offices in Hardin County and during his tenure we have expanded to serve three counties, offer our members five branch locations and manage $140m in assets. The Board and Staff would like to thank Dick for his tremendous service and welcome Sarah to her new role. We are all very excited to have Sarah as our President and look forward to many outstanding achievements in her future” stated Matt Jennings, CEO of Quest Federal Credit Union.
Wilcox will continue to serve as a Board Member and will also assist the CEO with other committee duties as Quest continues to grow and expand in Hardin, Logan and Wyandot counties.
