Ripco Credit Union President Liza Edinger recently announced the appointment of Lorrie Cummings as Branch Manager for Ripco’s Eagle River location. Cummings replaces Diane Sowinski, who served as Interim Branch Manager in Eagle River during the merger/transition period from September 2011 through April of 2012. Sowinski has returned to the main branch in Rhinelander to resume her primary duties as Vice President of Marketing and Business Development.
Cummings has been with Ripco Credit Union since March 2005, serving in the past as Loan Processer, Lead Loan Processor, and most recently as Loan Officer/Certified Budget Counselor at the main branch in Rhinelander. Cummings will oversee branch operations, including loan and deposit activity, and the management of branch personnel. Her extensive experience in lending will be a valuable asset to Ripco members utilizing the Eagle River branch location.
Cary Fox had earlier been named Assistant Branch Manager in Eagle River, and will continue to serve in that capacity under Cummings. Fox graduated from UW-Stout with a B.S. in General Business Administration. She had been with Nicolet Credit Union since December 2004, serving as a Member Service Representative/Loan Clerk prior to the merger.
Ripco Credit Union acquired the assets and members of the former Nicolet Credit Union via merger on Sept. 30, 2011. Subsequent to the merger, Ripco reports 14,790 members and assets of $103,917, 251 as of March 31, 2012.
