Great Mentors Matter

My Transition…
It’s been nearly five months to the day since my transition from Notre Dame Development into my current role as Sr. Vice President – Philanthropic Executive for CertusWealth (a division of CertusBank, N.A.). I am having an absolute blast creating this new business (focused on products/services for nonprofits) within the bank, and being constantly challenged to do great things for nonprofits across the country.

Yesterday our team was with Dr. Michael Lomax, President & CEO of the UNCF, and his team… He commented, “CertusWealth Philanthropic is the wave of the future…”, and I am so humbled by that. We have truly worked tirelessly over the last five months to deliver what we believe are transformational products and services for the nonprofit world… And we look forward to sharing them with everyone.

Why I chose CertusBank…
I believe to the person, that at CertusBank, we have THE strongest core group of philanthropic executive leaders in business. In their own way, they each understand that serving others not only enriches their lives, but those that they touch with their unquestionable gift of time, talent, and treasure. While in college I had the pleasure of having the Great Fr. Ted Hesburgh as a visiting professor for one of my senior seminar courses called Servant Leadership, and in that course what I learned most is that: organizations take on the image of their leaders, and that leaders who serve others openly, fairly, and consistently, build world class organizations. For that reason, and many others, I am thrilled to be a teammate at CertusBank. Make no mistake, Notre Dame provided a foundation for this work that is second to none!
