February 22, 2022
Maine Savings Federal Credit Union is proud and excited to announce that Kim Turner has accepted the position of Chief Operations Officer as of February 14, 2022. She brings to Maine Savings more than 20 years of experience in the financial industry, all of which were either directly in or adjacent to credit unions.
Turner's journey to Maine Savings began in her sophomore year of high school when she began working part time for Rainbow Federal Credit Union (now Dirigo Federal Credit Union). She later spent several years with Synergent, a credit union-owned FinTech company located in Westbrook that provides a number of key technology and marketing services to credit unions. Most recently she was the President and CEO of Otis Federal Credit Union where she initially started working in 2013 as their Vice President of Operations and Compliance.
"Credit unions are in my blood; I live by their purpose to serve people of all financial means, and I am so happy to be part of the Maine Savings family,” said Turner. "The opportunity to work here came at just the right time in my professional career."
President Vanessa Madore, who until the addition of Turner was also the acting Chief Operations Officer at Maine Savings, is thrilled to have the opportunity to work alongside Kim.
“We are blessed, honored and delighted to have Kim join the Maine Savings family," said Madore. "Kim’s professional experience and knowledge are extraordinary. Her passion for credit unions is inspiring. Kim’s leadership style embodies integrity, compassion, positivity and transparency, all of which complement our culture.”
