At the end of September, Kathy Enderlin retired from the League after an illustrious career that she would describe as fun and exciting. As many of you know, she was the Senior Vice President of the Audit Services Department – a department that she created and then grew to a regional presence for auditing solutions during her 20+ years with the League. During her last months in this role, Kathy worked on the smooth transition of the auditing business to a new League partner for CPA and IT/Management Advisors. Macpage will continue Kathy’s legacy and be a provider of auditing solutions for our credit unions, and Kathy ensured her staff would be part of this transition as a resource to her client credit unions.
Kathy Enderlin (center), senior vice president, League audit services, received warm wishes from President Daniel F. Egan and NECUS COO/SVP Bonnie Doolin and many staff and friends at her retirement luncheon on September 26.
Kathy was a pioneer in much that she did from fighting to join a union for higher wages in a male-dominated environment during her college years to selling firmware during the boom of the technology years. She served as Chair of AACUL’s Auditors Task Force and as President and Vice President of the Massachusetts Bank Internal Auditors -- background to be expected!
Perhaps unexpectedly, she is a certified master in Tai Chi, rode a motorcycle, has traveled the world including training in China as a Tai Chi Master; and she has a music collection that is the envy of many. So typical of her, the night before her retirement party she was at a Peter Gabriel concert – one of literally hundreds of concerts at which she has rocked the night away.
Her educational history is indicative of the complex and interesting person she is. She holds a BS in Accounting as well as a BA in Humanities and an MA in Liberal Arts – an accountant with a rich and well-educated soul!
While we have bid her farewell, we cannot quite say she has “retired” because there are definitely other chapters to be written by our colleague and friend. We wish her well but miss her enthusiasm, loyalty, and passion for everything she did while working with us.
