COLUMBUS, Ga.–Kinetic Credit Union has named a new CEO.
The $395-million credit union has tapped Mark Littleton to become its next leader, effective Feb. 1, 2018. Littleton will succeed Janet Davis, who is retiring after a 40-year career in credit unions.
“Mark was the unanimous choice of the selection committee from a pool of highly qualified candidates,” Ron Hinze, Kinetic’s board chairman, said in a statement. “The board was impressed with his passion for Kinetic and commitment to the credit union philosophy of bettering members’ lives. Mark’s combination of servant leadership, deep credit union experience, and vision for Kinetic will ensure that our financial institution continues to thrive going forward.”
Littleton, 47, is a native of the local area, and during his career once was assistant general manager of the city’s former minor-league baseball team, the Columbus RedStixx, including serving as broadcaster for the team’s games for a period of time in the 1990s.
“It is a tremendous honor to be selected to serve the members, employees, and board as president and CEO,” Littleton said in a statement. “Kinetic is a progressive, member-focused credit union that is a community leader. We have a talented team of financial professionals that works hard for our members and community. I look forward to carrying on the great work started by Janet by continuing our philosophy of conservative financial management while providing members with leading edge services to help them achieve their goals and dreams.”
