Stephanie Staggs, who served the past five years as the local director for the Better Business Bureau, has moved to a new role.
Staggs said via email she started Aug. 8 at AGFinancial as director of communications and marketing.
"As a Christian, I’m excited to join this faith-based nonprofit where I’ll be able to help churches and ministries expand their services, connect their finances to their faith and prepare for risky situations throughout the nation," she said in a news release from AGFinancial about the hire.
AGFinancial, located at 3900 S. Overland Ave., provides loans, investment planning, insurance and other financial services to individuals, families, churches and ministries, according to its website.
Staggs said her position at AGFinancial is a newly created role.
At the BBB, Staggs said the organization currently is in the interview process for her successor.
