Lake Michigan Credit Union hires David Mills as Vice President of Credit Union Sales

GRAND RAPIDS, MI (March 31, 2014) – Lake Michigan Financial Group (LMFG), a division of Lake Michigan Credit Union (LMCU), is pleased to announce the hiring of David Mills as vice president of credit union sales. Mills will act as LMFG’s national representative, putting him face to face with other credit union executives seeking a mortgage servicing partner.

Mills graduated from University of Kentucky in 1985 with double major BA degrees in Marketing and Finance. He has well over 20 years of executive level financial experience, working for Bank One, Select Mortgage Group and myCUmortgage.

Senior Vice President of Mortgage Lending, Eric Burgoon, is pleased to have Mills onboard. “We are thrilled to have such a well-respected, credit union executive join our team. Through our established mortgage correspondent program, we now offer an attractive option to other credit unions, secure in the knowledge that their members will be treated with the high level of service they expect.”

Mills is excited to make his mark on LMCU’s correspondent lending team. “Credit unions doing business with other credit unions is a win-win for everyone. LMCU’s reputation and ongoing commitment to its members and business partners demonstrates the model I aspire to daily. Credit unions have historically had little choice but to use the traditional banking community to access correspondent lending channels. In partnering with LMCU, they know we hold ourselves to higher standards of member service. As it has always been, my greatest professional satisfaction comes from helping others achieve their goals. I’m definitely in the right place.”

In his off-hours, Mills is an active member of SouthBrook Christian Church in Miamisburg, OH, and the University of Kentucky Alumni Association. He is an avid golf, basketball and overall sports fan. Mills and his wife Debra have one grown daughter, and an American Eskimo dog named Max.
