Where There’s A Will There’s A Way

What we do, or don’t do, matters.  What we say, or don’t say, matters.  Who we are matters.

I don’t believe there is such a thing as a small gesture or simple act because we can never really know the eventual impact of what we say or do can have on a place, a person, an outcome.  We must simply do what is right, do things with consideration for others, with compassion and passion.

One way to achieve this is to have the mindset that we will always try to find a way; a way to meet a need, provide a service and  be a one stop solution for your financial needs.  Every day, in all we do, that’s our mantra, “find a way”.  Whether at that moment or something that needs to be created; whether it’s a referral or an alternate solution, find a way.  Partnerships can be forged, products can be developed, new technologies can be achieved.  They may take an investment of time, effort and money, but if there is value and the will, there is a way.  And we will try.

Meet Freedom’s President and CEO

Mike MacPherson has over 35 years of experience in the financial industry, including more than 12 years with Freedom before becoming President/CEO in 2016. Born and raised in Baltimore County, Mike is a graduate of Mt. St. Joseph High School and Towson University. Mike now resides in Harford County, which he has called home for over 30 years.

He likes to blog because it helps him connect with members on a human level. He says, “It’s not just about what products we offer; it’s about what we stand for, why people should join, and spreading the credit union message with greater reach and purpose. If we want people to understand our culture, that we are trying to be something special, we need to give them the insight from a personal viewpoint, not just as a business.” He believes passionately in our community, our employees, our mission of giving back, and providing members with financial products and services that lead to their success.
