SOUTHGATE AND BROWNSTOWN, MI (December 30, 2021) — Advia Credit Union announced today that it has hired Nathan Senter as manager of organizational development and promoted Sarah Kennedy to assistant branch service manager. Senter will be based in Southgate and Kennedy in Brownstown.

As manager of organizational development, Senter will support Advia’s already well-established team by creating and honing internal communication and culture initiatives.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Advia in this essential behind-the-scenes role,” Senter said. “I’m geared toward fostering an employee experience centered around learning and development. My goal is to always bring a positive mindset, a hearty work ethic and an earnest desire to leave any place better than when I arrived.”
As assistant branch manager, Kennedy will support daily operations and assist with customer service at the Brownstown branch. She joined Advia in 2020 as a teller, where she focused on tracking teller referrals and branch goals.
“I’ve really enjoyed being a part of Advia’s team at Brownstown over the past year, and I’m excited about the opportunity to make an even greater impact on our branch’s ongoing success in this new role,” Kennedy said. “I look forward to finding new ways to improve our workflow with the goal of providing exemplary service for our members.”
