A credit union in the region has hired a new leader to oversee its future growth initiatives and current property management.
St Joseph-based United Federal Credit Union said it appointed Sorin Mihalache as director of property management.
He will operate out of the credit union’s corporate building in Niles.
In his new role, Mihalache’s responsibilities include “developing short- and long-term goals based on future growth initiatives; planning, directing, supervising and coordinating facility maintenance to ensure proper safety, sanitation and mechanical functions for all branches (building and grounds); managing equipment; and purchasing for the credit union,” according to United.
Before joining United, Mihalache served as the regional manager at Legacy Varin in Highland Park, Illinois, where he managed and provided strategic direction to teams managing multi-family apartment communities for six years.
Prior to Legacy Varin, Mihalache worked with American Residential Communities in Denver from 2004-13. He served as a field training specialist and moved up to district manager overseeing housing communities throughout Indiana, Michigan and New York.
Mihalache holds a B.S. degree in marketing and international business from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business.
Founded in 1949, United Federal Credit Union has more than 174,000 member-owners worldwide and manages over $2.8 billion in assets.
United has branches in Arkansas, Indiana, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina and Ohio.
