Mazuma Management

They don’t wear capes, but we do have a team assembled to protect the welfare of all Mazuma Members from banks and the like. Behold, the chiefs, the jefes, the big kahunas, the head honchos, the almighty Leadership Team.

Our Crew

Brandon Michaels

Brandon Michaels

He leads this crazy little outfit. If you want to catch him outside the office, you’ll have to glance skyward. He’s a pilot so a lot of free time is spent in the clouds. He is also a piano player and, to spite everyone’s best efforts, a loyal Oklahoma Sooner.

Justin Mouzoukos

Justin Mouzoukos

He’s a proud Kansas Jayhawk and the keeper of all things “numbers” for Mazuma. As the newest newbie on the team, he is also an avid cycler, paleo foodie, competitive BBQer, and somehow able to eat ghost peppers. Justin is not your normal CFO: he can’t golf but loves to skydive.

Dan Engelhard

Dan Engelhard

We consider ourselves lucky that Dan never became the lead guitarist for the band Boston. We’d much rather have him as our Chief Lending Officer. But you can’t keep an axe man down — Dan’s latest venture is forming an all-Mazuma band with some of our other musically inclined Team Members.

Deonne Edwards

Deonne Christensen

Buckle up for our team’s resident speed demon: Deonne is our full-time Chief Operations Officer and part-time race car driver. She specializes in historic car racing, her favorite being the ’56 Porsche Speedster. We welcomed her arrival with new speed bumps in the parking lot, but will always let her drive if we’re running late.

Brad Rein

Brad Rein

This Eagle Scout has come a long way from starting fires and earning patches. As our CIO, Brad is a tried-and-true strategy expert with more than 20 years of executive experience, from startup ventures to Fortune 500 companies. Plus, he co-owns a patent, so don’t be surprised if you see him on “Shark Tank” someday.

Michelle Wood

Michelle Wood

This die-hard women’s soccer fan serves as captain of Mazuma’s culture (aka Chief Culture Officer). A foodie with a taste for Thai, Michelle is charged with making sure our team always exudes our Bank Happy ’tude. That means keeping things healthy, productive, and most importantly, fun.

Mark Thompson

Mark Thompson

Mark could sell a bridge to the good people of Brooklyn, which is why we put him in charge of making you want to work with us as our VP of Growth and Brand. When he’s not at Mazuma, he’s most likely to be found at the golf course or hanging out with his family.

Josh Wooley

Josh Wooley

Having bravely survived being mauled by a bear while hiking the mountain passes of Patagonia, Josh decided a change of scenery was needed and moved to Kansas.* He’s our resident VP of Retail Delivery.

*Note: this part is totally a lie. Josh just really liked that one Leonardo diCaprio movie.

Additional note: In his free time, Josh also oversees our branch leaders, member care center leader, and E-sales leaders.

Jamie Grayson

Jamie Grayson

Our resident sports guru, Jamie spends his non-work hours golfing or coaching his son's sports teams. He actually says good morning to everyone on the team every morning and is always lending a helping hand, which is why he’s now our VP of Lending and Business Partnerships.

Tim Sheer

Tim Scheer

Outdoorsy to the core, our resident Montana native is a Jeep-owning, sports-loving kind of guy. When he’s not busy coaching youth baseball, Tim works as our VP of Retail Operations.

J.R. Brown

J.R. Brown

Acting as our VP of Technology during his work hours, J.R. spends his off-work hours immersed in technology as well, following the KC tech startup scene closely. He’s also a Husker football fan and enjoys investing and following the stock market.

Carla Fields Johnson

Carla Fields Johnson

Board Member since 2016
Carla’s passion for community service is evident in everything she does, and her experience serving on non-profit boards gives her a unique strategic perspective that she’s excited to contribute to Mazuma. Plus, she’s been a Member since 2005, so she knows a thing or two about the credit union.

Ike Nwabuonwu

Ike Nwabuonwu

Board Member since 2016
Ike places a lot of importance on educating and empowering the people of Kansas City in their journey to financial security. He’s highly acclaimed in the Kansas City area, having received a proclamation from the Governor of Missouri as an Achiever in Business and Industry.

Russell Petry

Russell Petry
