BOARD OF DIRECTORS CANDIDATESBIOS

Jeff Bieber

I have been with The Toro Company for just over 26 years. Throughout my years at Toro, I have held a variety of positions within the finance group, from Financial Analyst in four departments, Internal Audit, Supervisor of Marketing Programs, and now as a Manager in the Credit Department. 

I was appointed to the Credit Union Supervisory Committee by the Board in March of 2015, then was elected to the Credit Union Board in February 2018, and now completing my second three-year term. I have been Board Treasurer since 2019. With my analytical skills and experiences at Toro, I continue to find new ways to provide greater service and the best possible rates for all credit union members. 

Katie Crooke

I have been with The Toro Company for close to 6 years. Throughout my employment, I have held various roles within operations and now engineering/finance. My current role is budget analyst within the engineering department. Toro has many great organizations that give back to the community, as well as organizations that develop an individual. I currently am the director of the Bridging organization, as well as a member of the Women in the workplace. In my personal life, I am on the board of directors for Farmington Youth Basketball Association, which oversees all youth basketball (travel & rec) in the community. 

I would like to be considered for the credit union board because I believe my background in compliance, engineering/finance, and my degree in finance, would help bring new ideas and knowledge to the board. I am interested in not only bringing new ideas to the board, but to be a servant leader to the employees of Toro and do what is best for the long-term growth of the company. 

Jon Stodola

I am a passionate leader focused on helping and serving people through a variety of initiatives. Recently, I have transitioned from my role at The Toro Company where I served for more than 8 years as the company’s Government Contracts Manager for North America. In this role, I helped educate and support Toro’s internal and distribution teams on the use of Government Contracts and how to work with government agencies. I was also responsible for supporting several of Toro’s key industry relationships – in addition to helping develop and implement strategies targeted at growing and supporting the Sports Fields & Grounds market segments, which represents professional and collegiate sports, educational institutions, and government – including federal, state and local entities. 

In my new role as Director of Cooperative Contracts at Sourcewell, a unit of government within the State of Minnesota, I work with a variety of Public Safety suppliers who provide discounted products/services and purchasing efficiencies to government agencies, Nationwide, through a competitively solicited and publicly awarded contracting process. 

Over the past 3+ years, I have served in a variety of capacities on the Toro Employees Federal Credit Union Board of Directors and currently serves as the Vice Chair and Marketing Sub-Committee member. 

I also serve on my local Home-Owners Association Board of Directors where I help uphold the rules and regulations of the neighborhood association and maintains budgetary compliance.
