Christine Leslie, president of Bridge Credit Union in Columbus, Ohio, will retire in January 2020.

The $90 million-asset credit union said on Tuesday that Jarod Bach, who is currently executive vice president, will take over once Leslie retires. He has been at the institution since 2011.

Leslie has worked at Bridge for more than 36 years and has held various leadership roles. She became president in December 2011 and helped the institution nearly triple in size, growing from $36 million in assets to $90 million today.

“We are thankful for Christy’s exceptional contributions, commitment and steadfast service to Bridge Credit Union over the past 36 years,” Julie Ray, chair of Bridge, said in a press release. “Bridge has achieved many astonishing successes under Christy’s leadership. Bridge is positioned for growth and success for years to come.”

Bridge earned about $312,000 through June 30, down almost 37% from the same period a year earlier, according to call report data.
