Genisys Credit Union

I have worked for Genisys Credit Union since 2005 as a Branch Manager.  In 2016, I was assigned to the Oxford Branch.  I was very excited to get into the Oxford area.  My wife of 23 years is from Oxford, and I from Orion.  We now live in on the edge of both communities in Oakland Twp. where I serve as a Oakland Twp. Parks Commissioner also.  I have a son and daughter both recently graduated.  I am also a member of the Lake Orion Knights of Columbus and attend St. Joseph's Catholic Church since infancy.  I love the Oxford area and feel fortunate to be an ambassador for the chamber and community at large.
