From the CEO’s Desk
Hello, my name is Matt Jennings, and I am the Chief Executive Officer of Quest Federal Credit Union and I hope this letter finds you enjoying the New Year and staying warm and safe in the winter weather months.
On Saturday, March 19th, Quest held our Annual Meeting. Sarah Wirbel, President gave a summary of accomplishments for the past year, Cam Hemmerly, Treasurer reviewed our financial statement and Allen Barrett, VP/Nominating Chair summarized the annual election cycle. Sarah Wirbel, Cam Hemmerly and Karen Breidenbach were re-elected to the board and Travis King was re-elected to credit committee. Karen was elected at the end of 2021 during our annual election cycle and then re-joined the staff as the Vice President of Branch Operations – Russells Point and at that time, resigned from the board. Karen’s vacancy will be filled at the next board meeting, look for a press release coming shortly thereafter announcing our new board member.
Matt Jennings spoke about 2022 goals and vision for the future and also recognized the following board and staff members for years of service. Kelly Teynor, Connie Poling, Tara Howard, Chasidy Pond, Randy Buxton, Travis King, Mark Light, Tina Hull and Brandon Ramge for 5 years. Karen Breidenbach for combined service to the board and staff for 10 years. Andrea Good for 20 years. Ron Rogers and Matt Jennings for 25 years and John “Pete” Gunn for 40 years.
Our new location in Russells Point is coming along nicely and now that the weather has stabilized from winter, we are making great progress every week. W. Lewis Construction is the General Contractor for the job and is doing a fabulous job managing building supply ordering, keeping the project on time and on budget and we thank Bill and his crew for their hard work and dedication to this job.
2022 is off to a very solid start with strong loan volume. Membership growth remains strong, and we are looking forward to another successful year. We thank our member owners for their loyalty and without our members continuing to use Quest as their primary financial institution, we could not experience the growth and success that we have maintained over the years.

We have built a robust library covering many topics that you may find of interest or that can be used for self help for such things as online banking, learning how to apply for loans, student loans and much more.
In closing, thank you for your patronage, and the Board of Directors and Staff would like to wish you all the best. We view Quest as one big family and we are here to help, so if there is anything that we can do to make your quality of life better, do not hesitate to ask! Stay safe, take care of family, neighbors, friends and yourselves. Thank you and I welcome any comments, suggestions or questions from our member/owners.
