The reception will take place on Friday, June 5, 2015 from 2-5 p.m. at CommunityAmerica's Corporate Administrative Office, 9777 Ridge Drive, Lenexa, Kansas 66219.

For more than 20 years, Pierce led CommunityAmerica Credit Union as president and CEO. The credit union grew to new heights under his leadership—he was instrumental in its conversion to a community credit union. With assets nearing $2 billion and more than 180,000 members, CommunityAmerica is one of the largest credit unions in the nation.

Not only did Pierce have a gift at managing the operational side of the credit union, CommunityAmerica's employees truly enjoyed working for him.

Here’s what employees had to say:

“Dennis has brought both humor and sincerity to the lives of all of us who worked with him at CommunityAmerica,” says Crystal Hinck, executive assistant. 

“Dennis has tremendous compassion for people and his ‘down-to-earth’ approach to business and life makes him a truly great, inspirational leader,” says Judy Grame, manager of Business Services Operations.

“Dennis has a leadership style unlike any other CEO that I have seen," says Gail Gray, vice president of Operations. "The way he engages all employees helps us feel comfortable to approach him, understand and appreciate his core values at work and at home, and lets us know that he genuinely cares about everyone’s happiness and career success.”
