SVP/Chief Credit Officer Bill Heath has announced his retirement this fall. His last day in the office will be August 31st.
Bill has worked for Farm Credit for 28 years. He graduated from UVM in 1977 with a BS in business administration. After farming for a few years with his brother-in-law, he was hired in 1984 as a credit representative by the Watertown, New York association, now part of Farm Credit East. In 1985 Bill transferred to the Newport office of the Connecticut Valley association, one of the predecessor associations of Yankee Farm Credit, eventually becoming the manager of that branch and chief appraiser of the association. In 1995 Bill moved to the White River Jct. office to become VP/Branch Manager there. Bill was promoted to SVP/Regional Manager in 2005, and to SVP/Chief Credit Officer in 2006.
Bill has been a significant factor in Yankee's success over the years, and especially during the downturn of 2008-2010. He will be greatly missed.
Bill, congratulations on this milestone. We wish all the best for you in the next stage of life. Don't be a stranger.
