VI President, Tim Berney Honored Last Night as one of Oklahoma's Most Admired
OKLAHOMA CITY – Thirty-two executives were recognized Thursday night at The Journal Record’s fifth annual Oklahoma’s Most Admired CEOs event at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City.
Michael Kloiber, president and CEO of Tinker Federal Credit Union, was also inducted into the program’s Chain of Distinction as a three-time honoree.
“Of course, this honor is truly humbling in itself,” Kloiber said. “There is no greater reward than to be held in esteem by those on whose lives you have the opportunity to make a major impact. As the CEO, you have the ability to make them happy, content and challenged, or you can also have the opposite impact.”
Kloiber and the other honorees were selected by a panel of business and community leaders and are profiled in the Oklahoma’s Most Admired CEOs magazine inserted in Thursday’s issue of The Journal Record.
