About the Cooksey Division
Founder and Branch Manager, Michael Cooksey, values his employee’s efforts, ideas and opinions. He also believes in maintaining a positive and fun work environment!
We are proud of our unique, family-like culture, which encourages communication and interaction amongst employees. This piece of the puzzle is very important, as it makes for a desirable team-based work environment. Our branch celebrates every one of our employee birthdays, hosts office potlucks, and cookouts at Michael’s home. We even have a “Fun Committee” that is dedicated to planning events for our employees to enjoy! TopGolf, bowling, paintball, chili cook-offs and other events continue to be a huge success and are highly anticipated by our Loan Officers and staff. Our quarterly service events such as Habitat for Humanity-ReStore, and annually stuffing the Christmas bus, allow our branch to give back to the community while developing team-building skills. Members of the Cooksey Branch also donate to, and volunteer, their time with charitable organizations found in our areas we call home.
We also have complimentary healthy food options, such as fresh deli meats, fruits, snacks and beverages available to all employees that work for The Cooksey Team. Our kitchen is stocked weekly and continues to prove a valuable resource for employees to enjoy!
Our commitment to our employees and service define our branch. For this very reason, we believe in maintaining positive relationships with our staff and customers. Through collaborative efforts, training and coaching, we continue to develop and become stronger as a team.
We pledge to further our team betterment mentality by making a difference in our communities that extend beyond our lending solutions!
