)-- CU Appraisal Services is pleased to welcome two new members to its growing leadership team: Partner Relationship Manager, Dawn Stankovic, and Quality Control Manger, Jennifer Richardson.
Ms. Stankovic will oversee relationships with CU Appraisal Services’ credit union and appraiser partners in the southeast. She began her career in credit unions, where she has held multiple management positions over the past 30 years. For the past sixteen years, Ms. Stankovic served as mortgage loan manager for Fort Knox Federal Credit Union, “My experience as a customer cemented my decision to join CU Appraisal Services,” said Stankovic, “other appraisal management companies did not deliver the same quality reporting, communication, and responsiveness that they did. I have also been impressed with the quality of their relationships with their appraisers. I am sold on their vision of a new type of appraisal management company, and am excited to help extend that vision to other credit unions.”
“We are really happy to have Dawn join our team. Her passion, expertise, and professionalism are invaluable,” said John Theobald, CU Appraisal Services’ president. “Having a credit union professional of her level on staff helps us assure we are doing all we can to support credit unions.”
Ms. Richardson joins CU Appraisal Services with more than seven years experience mortgage underwriting in the banking industry. Most recently, she served as a quality analyst for Fifth Third Bank. In this new position, she will focus on compliance and quality efforts for the company’s credit union partners—supervising a team of collateral review specialists; developing and implement quality control training programs; and maintaining an active role on continuous improvement teams to ensure quality and compliance. Ms. Richardson holds a degree in public administration from Northern Arizona University.
“Ms. Richardson will be instrumental in strengthening our training processes and quality procedures into the future,” said Rob Richter, Vice President of Operations. “Our business has doubled, year upon year—and we are poised for exponential growth in 2016. As our business grows, it is important for us to stay abreast of compliance changes, ensure efficiency, and maintain the level of responsiveness and personal accountability that our credit union partners have come to expect.”
