Tom Scott, GM of Oliver's Markets, Joins Board
Tom Scott, General Manager of Oliver's Markets, has been appointed to the Board of Directors of Community First.
The Santa Rosa-based financial cooperative had a vacancy when longtime Board Member Jim Leddy left the area to take the job of Chief Administrative Officer for Mono County.
After phone and in-person interviews of a dozen candidates, Mr. Scott was selected at the financial cooperative's November board meeting.
Under Mr. Scott's management, Oliver's Markets was named "Retailer of the Year" by the National Association of Speciality Food Dealers in both 2005 and 2013.
"I'm hoping my retail experience can bring value to the Board, and ultimately to all stakeholders in the credit union," said Scott.
Mr. Scott, who earned an MBA from Sonoma State University in 2005, is a strong advocate for the Buy Local and Bank Local movements in Sonoma County. "I believe a local credit union plays an important role in strengthening the local economy," he said.
