Former California and Nevada Credit Union League CEO David Chatfield has returned to the organizations, named interim president/CEO today.
Chatfield replaces Bill Cheney on Tuesday July 6, when Cheney becomes the top executive at CUNA in Washington, D.C.
Chatfield served as president/CEO of the California Credit Union League for 15 years, and as president and of the Nevada Credit Union League for nine years. He also served on the NCUA Board under Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.
He is expected to serve as interim leader for several months, the leagues said in a release. Concurrently, a search committee is conducting a search for a permanent president/CEO. The committee plans to have a new leader in office before the leagues' annual meetings, scheduled for mid-November.
"We're very pleased to have Dave's many years of experience and wisdom," said Jeff York, California Credit Union League chairman and CEO of CoastHills Federal Credit Union. "He is an excellent leader and will be a great resource to our board as we enter this important transition."
