A leadership dispute has led to a change of CEO at the $33 million Government Printing Office Federal Credit Union, according to sources close to the credit union.
The credit union announced on July 19 that former CEO William Lewis had left the credit union and that the board had appointed Marcia Dixon, a 16-year credit union veteran as interim CEO.
Before assuming the duties of the CEO, Dixon served as the Credit Union's Loan Manager for 6 years, a position she will continue to hold during the interim period, the CU announced. In addition, Ms. Dixon will oversee the daily operations of the credit
union and provide visible leadership to the CU staff.
The CU also announced that it has engaged the services of management consultant Lindsay A. Alexander to assist the staff and board for the next few months until a new CEO is named. Alexander will focus her attention on evaluating systems and processes for efficiency and best practices.
"The board of directors is pleased that both Ms. Dixon and Ms. Alexander will be working together on our members' behalf to ensure that our credit union continues to run safely and soundly," said LaTonya Hayes, board chair at the credit union.
