Joel definitely knows his way around financial institutions. He's managed them for the last 15 years, with nearly three of those years at WSECU. Before that, he spent a decade managing Wal-Mart stores, so he also knows a thing or two about working with the community - something he likes to do even when not at work.
His desire to make things better for those around him may have something to do with his years as a military child, when he attended more than 10 different schools between kindergarten and 12th grade (and helped redefine the term "new kid"). Appropriately enough, at WSECU it's the people he works with that he likes the most - and the relationship-building that comes from interacting daily with members and coworkers.
Outside the office, Joel likes to read, travel, and spend time with his family. We hope he won't be moving again anytime soon.
