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.

NES Plumbing, Heating & Cooling

After graduating from Oakland University in 2013, I continued my Marketing career with the NBA where I gained a lot of experience with different cultures and personalities, traveling around the world. I was able to take the experiences and apply them to the standard marketing practices of NES. Being someone who enjoys working with my hands and figuring out how things work, I was quickly attached to the Plumbing and HVAC trade. Starting off as a general labor, in 2015, to moving my way up to the Office Manager, working with NES Plumbing, Heating and Cooling in Oxford has been an exciting experience of watching an entrepreneurs dream become a well-known local business. I look forward to serving on the Oxford Chamber and joining this wonderful community.
