NASCUS Realigns Council After Secretary Bigby Departure
The impending takeover of the ailing Norbel Credit Union in Colorado by a Texas CU triggered a shakeup Tuesday in an advisory governing council of the National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors.
Resigning as secretary of the Credit Union Executive Council, a governing unit of the trade group's Advisory Council is Edwin Bigby, a long-time director of the NASCUS unit and president/CEO of the $120 million Norbel of Fort Collins, which under an NCUA-engineered transaction is being taken over July 31 by the $5.5 billion Security Service FCU of San Antonio.
In a statement, NASCUS praised Bigby for his years of service to the supervisor trade group and the council comprised of 12 directors who are CU executives.
Replacing Bigby on the board is Dan Kester, CEO of Sooper CU of Denver who will fill out Bigby's term running until September 2012.
Bigby had been elected secretary of the Executive Council in August 2009.
NASCUS said Steve Behler, an Executive Council director and president/CEO of Kemba CU, Cincinnati, has been elected secretary succeeding Bigby.
In lauding Bigby, NASCUS President/CEO Mary Martha Fortney thanked him for his NASCUS work noting he "had made significant contributions to our group and is a dedicated supporter of the state system."
