Hickey Named Vice President and Chief Appraiser


Joe Hickey has been named vice president and chief appraiser with GreenStone Farm Credit Services. He was promoted following the recent retirement of longtime GreenStone employee James Garvey, who had been with the organization for more than 35 years.

In this role, Hickey will lead the association’s appraisal function, while continuing to conduct real estate and personal property appraisals in support of client needs. As the chief appraiser, he will oversee the development and lead the implementation of appraisal policies, program standards and procedures to ensure consistent and effective practices. He will also spearhead the quality control evaluation processes of internal and external appraisal resources.

Hickey began his career at GreenStone as a financial services officer, but has spent a majority of his 26-year tenure in various positions within the association’s appraisal department. Most recently, Hickey served as the appraisal group manager responsible for overseeing chattel property and delivering timely valuation for customer-first lending.

“Joe’s performance driven attitude, ability to develop relationships and employ proven management practices and business tools for the benefit of clients and customers, will ensure him continued success within the organization and satisfaction of our members,” said Paul Anderson, executive vice president and chief credit officer. “Thanks to James’ leadership and service to GreenStone’s appraisal department, Joe has built a tremendous amount of experience and industry knowledge, which has greatly prepared him for his new role in the company.”

A graduate of Michigan State University, Hickey earned a Bachelor of Science degree in terrestrial biology, and later acquired his accredited rural appraiser (ARA) certification. Currently, Hickey holds a 26-year membership in the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers, serving on its national ethics committee and holding several chapter officer positions. In addition, he is a member of the Personal Property Resource Panel for the Appraisal Foundation.

Born and raised in Lake Odessa, Hickey grew up on his parent’s cash crop and beef operation. Today, Hickey continues to reside in Ionia County. Outside the office, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Criss, and their two children, David and Emma, hunting and fishing.
