Dickhaut Announces Retirement
Tuesday, November 24, 2015
With nearly 25 years in the Credit Union business, Darrell Dickhaut has announced his retirement from Dakotaland Federal Credit Union. “Throughout his career, Darrell has shown undying support for the growth of his community, the well-being of his membership and the strength of his credit union. We are fortunate to have benefited from his leadership,” stated Credit Union President, Dan Cumbee.
As long-time manager of Turtle Creek Federal Credit Union, Dickhaut managed the construction of a new building in 1997, which led to the relocation of their office from the South Dakota Developmental Center to the current location on the Main Street of Redfield. Due to the growth and progress experienced during Darrell’s term as manager, the current office building will soon complete its second major expansion. In addition, and also to his credit, Dickhaut has grown his location from $2 million to over $21 million in assets.
Darrell intends to complete his career on December 24, 2015 and will turn over the management of the Redfield Office to his successor, Emily Nowell. “I can honestly say I have truly enjoyed my time employed with Turtle Creek/Dakotaland Federal Credit Union. It is hard to believe it has been nearly 25 years since I began my career. The employees whom I have had the privilege of working with have been amazing and I will miss them the most. However, I am very excited about entering into this next stage of my life,” commented Dickhaut.
Looking forward to spending his retirement doing more of what he loves, Darrell plans to fill his calendar with hunting, fishing and camping trips, golf outings and being a grandpa. His first item of business out of the office will be a well-deserved vacation with his wife, Barb.
A Retirement Open House was held on Monday, December 21, 2015 at the newly remodeled Dakotaland Federal Credit Union Office at 509 Main Street in Redfield.
