The Wyandot County Office of Economic Development is humbled to welcome two new gold level members and an additional silver member that have joined the organization as of the 2018 calendar year.

Quest FCU logoOne of the new gold level members, Quest Federal Credit Union, is headquartered in Kenton, OH, employs more than 25 people and has a membership of over 2,500.  Outside of Kenton, the financial institution also has branches located in Ada, Bellefontaine, and most recently Upper Sandusky. The Upper Sandusky office is run by Vice President of Branch Operations, Lisa Bricely, who will represent Quest FCU on the WCOED board.

USEVS logoThe other new gold level member is Upper Sandusky Exempted Village Schools. Although the WCOED and local school system have partnered many times, the formal membership of a local educational partner is a significant step in positively impacting our primary mission.  USEVS will be represented on the WCOED board by Superintendent Laurie Vent as well as high school principal Jim Clifford.

 

Fairhaven Community LogoThe single new silver level member to join the WCOED is Fairhaven Community.  Another prominent local employer and integral supporter of many community activities, Fairhaven Community employs roughly 225 people at its Upper Sandusky facility, and is one of many United Church Homes communities which is headquartered in Marion, OH.  Fairhaven will be represented on the WCOED board by its Administrator, Lori Marsh.

The Wyandot County Office of Economic Development would like to extend a warm welcome to these newest members, and looks forward to their ongoing participation in our local economic development effort.
