Movin' On

Dear myFICO Forums Community,

 

After a wonderful five years being your community manager, it’s now time for me to move on to new adventures.  My last day will be April 30th.  Your new community manager will be Sarah.

 

It’s been a pleasure getting to know and learn from so many of you.  I especially want to express my deep gratitude to our volunteer moderators and my colleagues at Lithium, without whom there would be no myFICO Forums.

 

I wish Sarah and all of you much future success, and hope to see all of you in the 800 Club!

 

Cheers! 

 

Barry

In a past life I served as FICO consumer affairs manager, FICO media spokesman, and myFICO Forums community manager from 2007 to 2012. I'm now freelance writing about credit at CreditCards.com and on my own site, SpeakingOfCredit.com.

Re: Movin' On

Barry, thanks for all you have done for this community, and our family. We came here with scores in the 500s over 4 yrs ago and it was the guidance and input from others, especially you Barry, that set us straight with facts and info about FICO scoring. You set us on the right path towards financial independence and a home of ourr own. And I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. We owe a debt of gratitude. 


myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
