Local BBB leader takes university position

The local Better Business Bureau office is changing leaders. Marjorie Stephens, marketplace services director, has been named interim president and CEO following the resignation of Greg Smitley.

Smitley, a graduate of Huntington University, has accepted a job at his alma mater as treasurer and vice president of finance. The BBB Serving Northern Indiana named Smitley to succeed longtime leader Mike Coil less than one year ago.

“Even though I’ve been at the BBB a relatively short period of time, I cherish the relationships I’ve either built or strengthened over the past year, am optimistic about the positive direction of our local organization, and am proud and honored to have served with such a fine and dedicated group of people,” Smitley said in a statement released today.

Kevin Hunter, BBB chairman, will lead the search for Smitley’s replacement.
