Every time Richard enters the building, he has a huge smile on his face. He has the ability to make members and coworkers laugh and feel special. Richard works incredibly hard to promote the Credit Union and ensure that members are getting the best experience. Pam's memory will live on through Richard's enthusiasm and dedication."
