WENATCHEE — Longtime financial employee John MacDonald retired Thursday after 35 years of helping customers at Numerica Credit Union and its predecessors.
MacDonald’s responsibilities had included overseeing operations of the Wenatchee region, handling tech duties, editing the credit union’s newsletter and training and mentoring hundreds of employees over the years, a Numerica press release said.
MacDonald began his career in 1978 when he joined the local branch of Highway District 2 Credit Union. He then aided the credit union through seven mergers, construction of new branches and growth of assets from $2.8 million to $125 million. He’s also been active in community groups and projects, including serving as treasurer of the RiverView Kiwanis Club for 20 years.
“We’ve been proud to have him at Numerica all these years,” said Michelle Grabicki, a Numerica vice president.
MacDonald said his plans for retirement include perfecting his do-it-yourself skills, reading, traveling and staying involved in the community.
