Meet 2015 KC Magazine Most Wanted Auction’s Brandon Michaels

Brandon Michaels

President and CEO of Mazuma

Mazuma Credit Union has been a Kansas City institution for more than 65 years, but it took president and CEO Brandon Michaels some time to get to the city he now calls home. Originally from San Francisco, Michaels studied finance and psychology at the University of Oklahoma, eventually moving to KC in 2009.

Since then, he’s gotten involved as a member of Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Corporate Club, a former member of the Board of Brush Creek Community Partners and the Mazuma Foundation, his company’s charitable organization that gives back to the community in the form of education, community development and the arts.

What does he love most about his adopted home? “The community,” Michaels says. “Despite it being a city of 2 million plus people, it is very connected and has a small feel to it. I love the people, the values and the fact that I don’t have to drive three hours a day to get to and from work.”
