“No matter how zig-zag the route from my original destination, I knew I would always end up at Dakota West.”
Khadero Taylor, our new Branch Manager at our New Town location, began working with us shortly after graduating from Minot State University, but even his journey here took a few zigs and zags. Originally from Nassau, Bahamas, Khadero adapted to the environment at Dakota West even more seamlessly than he adapted to the climate change between the Caribbean and North Dakota.
Providing both front line and loan support since his arrival in New Town, Khadero loves the culture of his new home on the banks of Lake Sakakawea. “Due to the energy sector, there’s such diversity. Our membership shows that even though our branch is a local thing, we help a wide range of people in the community.” Belonging to a credit union, Khadero explains, gives people more of a sense of ownership in their financial institution.
When not at the branch, it is likely Khadero could be just about anywhere. He finds traveling, driving, and seeing new sites to be one of his favorite pursuits, but there are times when he prefers to hunker down at home, or shoot hoops at the gym. Even soaking in some peace and quiet, he admits, is not a bad way to enjoy his free time.
In a bumpy year, 2020 is certainly wrapping up on a high note for him. “This year has been a journey. I’ve learned from a lot of people throughout the organization. I like how unified we are, how we operate as a family.” Please stop by and congratulate Khadero on his new role leading our staff and serving our members in Montrail County.
