Congratulations to Stephanie Johnson, Greater Missouri Leadership Foundation Board Member and Graduate from the Challenge Class of 2018, who has taken the role of Senior Human Relations Business Partner to help build and grow one of the newer branches of Veterans United – Paddio Home Loans. Paddio started in the middle of the pandemic (Aug 2020) in Springfield with approximately 20 team members and they are now at over 100. They hope to double those numbers over next year and Stephanie will be offering her special talents to support Paddio in areas of recruitment, business development, culture and human resources. In addition, Stephanie’s team will help build out an internship recruitment and management program that will¬†offer opportunities to local college students to enter into the finance industry and for the company to develop future team members.

Stephanie isn’t taking this leap by herself. Joining her will be her husband Mike who will be taking on a new role of Assistant Principal at Springfield Catholic High School. Exciting adventures for the entire family ahead!

Greater Missouri Leadership Foundation appreciates the ongoing support of Veterans United with the addition of Paddio Home Loans who have sponsored a table for our July 21st Women of the Year luncheon. Join us to congratulate Stephanie in person!
