The Credit Union Association of Oklahoma is out looking for a new president/CEO following the sudden departure of Debra J. Ingram, its top manager since 2008.
A terse statement from the trade group said only Ingram, an attorney who joined the organization in 2006, "is no longer with the association" and that Gary Jones, a league staffer and former CEO at a Tulsa CU is the interim manager.
Ingram becomes the second league CEO head to leave on short notice in the last four months.
In May John Dill, president/CEO of the Credit Union Association of Colorado/Wyoming, also departed under circumstances not fully explained.
In Oklahoma a widely-circulated e-mail last week by the chairman of the Oklahoma group, Steve Rasmussen, who also is president/CEO of the $410 million FAA CU of Oklahoma City, noted Ingram's exit.
"Rest assured all other staff are in place to continue to address your association needs," wrote Rasmussen.
Ingram had been instrumental in guiding the group's relocation last year from Tulsa to Oklahoma City and the opening of a showcase Credit Union House on new CUAO premises within blocks of the state capitol.
