Sally Gogel Fischer, owner of Gogel Fischer & Associates CPA in Jasper, has been appointed to fill an open seat on the Hoosier Hills Credit Union Board of Directors.
Her term begins January 1, 2020, and her initial term will be for one year.
Fischer replaces Bill Miller, who retired from the Board after 50 years of service.
An HHCU member for more than 10 years who lives in Jasper with her husband Steve, Fischer brings a wealth of professional and community volunteer experience, plus extensive leadership and management tenures to the board. She has logged more than 17 years of corporate accounting work and more than 12 years of private-practice accounting for public clients.
“I work with clients to analyze their financial positions and strategies, plan for expansions, optimize taxes and much more,” Fischer said. “In past positions in corporate accounting, I worked with business roles such as chief financial officer, overseeing all financial aspects of the business. In those capacities, communication and interactions with other departments and management are essential. I believe that enables me to look at things from lots of perspectives.”
Fischer is a Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), a former president of the American Legion Auxiliary and former secretary for the Mariah Hill Conservation Club. She has also been a board member and treasurer of Tri Cap.
Along with being a Certified Public Accountant, Fischer holds bachelor’s degrees in marketing and management from the University of Evansville, as well as a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Indiana University Southeast.
