From the CEO – April 2016

From the CEO’s Desk

Hello, my name is Matt Jennings and I am the CEO of Quest Federal Credit Union.

I wanted to take a moment and update our owners on our financial progress for the year and to tell you the great news that on April 26th we will break ground for our 5th branch location!

In the fall of 2013 we chartered the County of Wyandot and added them to the roster of communities that we serve along with Hardin and Logan Counties. Wyandot County is a great neighbor to Hardin County with solid infrastructure for building, strong employers and a long standing, very robust farm community, perfect for what we specialize in with our products and services. We welcomed the residents of Wyandot County in 2013 and now we can look forward in the very near future to serving their needs in a new, modern facility located at 1725 E. Wyandot Ave – Upper Sandusky. Watch the website for updates and pictures as we progress through the construction process.

2016 has started strong financially with solid 4%+ loan growth, 3.5%+ membership growth and a 0.80% ROA ratio. This is only due to the strong support that we receive from our member owners and for that we thank you! Stay tuned and I will keep you updated on our financial performance as the year goes along.

In closing, I hope you and your families have a very Safe & Happy Spring Season! I welcome any comments, suggestions or questions from our Owners. I can be reached by calling the Main Office or via email at mjennings@questfcu.com. Thank you for your loyal patronage to Quest and I challenge you to Explore the Possibilities!

Quest’s CIO Takes Chairman Role

SPRANG TAKE ADVANTAGE OF LOCAL OPPORTUNITIES, LEADS ALLIANCE BOARD

Written by Tim Thomas, Kenton Times Editor, March 10, 2016 03:31pm

When a planned move to Columbus fell through nearly 16 years ago, Brian Sprang had no way of knowing the opportunities that would come his way in his hometown of Kenton.

Today, Sprang is in his second year as chief information officer at Quest Federal Credit Union in Kenton and is the new board chairman of the Hardin County Chamber and Business Alliance. A 1996 graduate of Kenton High School, he went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Toledo in 2000 with an emphasis on information systems.

When the Columbus opportunity failed to materialize, Sprang and his wife Abbey came home to Kenton. Abbey landed at Mary Rutan Hospital in Bellefontaine, where she is coordinator of the radiology department.

Brian was offered a position at Allmax Software in Kenton, where he stayed for 13 years. In June of 2014, Sprang started at Quest, where he is responsible for the company’s information technology and marketing.

Quest CEO Matt Jennings encouraged Sprang to get involved with the Alliance and that led to his becoming vice chairman of the board. A year later at the Alliance’s annual meeting last month, he moved into the chairman’s role.

Sprang’s initial involvement on the Alliance board has been at a time of major investments in Kenton, driven by the expansion of International Paper and the completion of the Kenton Elementary School.

The Sprangs are the parents of a preschooler and first grader who attend KES and he said both kids are excited to be at the new school.

Sprang said of his fast rise up the leadership ladder at the Alliance, “The previous chairman (Tim Street) saw qualities in me to know I could handle the job,” he said.

“It’s a very exciting opportunity. I’m happy to fill my role and responsibility in the next two years,” Sprang said.

He hopes his term will be as successful as the aforementioned growth in 2015.

Sprang believes a new organization structure will be a big benefit to the Alliance. The reform is a “bottom up perspective” with committees representing different areas of the Alliance reporting to the executive board, which he also chairs. The areas include economic development, chamber and tourism, community development and the historic courthouse district.

He said the committee reports “allow the board to have concise, yet fluid discussions” of issues affecting the Alliance.

Sprang also said changes have resulted in a “tighter knit group” on the board, along with fresh perspectives from three new board members.

Sprang is following in the footsteps of his late grandfather, Leo “Barney” Bernard, who was board chairman of its predecessor, the Kenton Chamber of Commerce, in 1960-61.

Sprang said the Alliance wants to pull in members from all communities in the county and work with area Community Improvement Corporations “to foster and develop those relationships.”

“We want to be an ally to the smaller towns and let them know we’re here to help them. We can pool our resources together which is better than working alone,” he said.

Sprang noted one of the discussions at Wednesday’s board meeting was how to improve the Alliance’s partnership with the Ada Chamber of Commerce.

The Alliance also can benefit members through technology. The organization has a new website which allows member businesses to promote themselves.

“We’re putting our best foot forward. Our members see that,” Sprang said.

One thing the Alliance has done to try to increase involvement in the organization is to offer a free one-year individual membership to recent graduates of the Hardin Leadership program, he said.

Sprang believes the county is poised to see more retail and restaurant growth in the next 12 to 18 months, something he thinks will help attract young families to locate in the county.

“I think we have a lot of great things to offer,” he said.

The Sprangs have found that to be the case. They both have family in the area. Brian is choir director at Immaculate Conception Church and the fill-in organist. Both he and Abbey are active runners and Brian enjoys playing indoor soccer on weekends.

“It’s obviously home and we’re very excited to be here,” Sprang said.
