CUES Names Next Top Credit Union Exec Finalists
Credit union executives from three countries and three states comprise the five finalists for the Next Top Credit Union Exec award from CUES.
They are Jill Huls of Conexus Credit Union in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada; Ashley Kohlrus of the $960 million Allegacy FCU in Winston-Salem, N.C.; Nate Muniz of the $2.7 billion Pennsylvania State Employees CU in Harrisburg, Pa.; Cas Scott of Community CPS Australia in Hunter Valley, New South Wales; and Peter Walker of the $777 million OSU FCU in Corvallis, Ore.
The five finalists were selected by judges from the group of 15 selected by public vote, each of whom have been providing updates to their projects at www.NextTopCreditUnionExec.com, CUES said.
“The judges had a very difficult job, reviewing the initial application video and subsequent blog post, and determining which finalists they felt should move forward in the competition,” said Fred Johnson, president/CEO of CUES in Madison, Wis.
The five finalists will each receive two coaching sessions from DDJ Myers of Phoenix and a trip to the CEO/Executive Team Network gathering Nov. 4-7 in Manalapan, Fla., CUES said.
There they’ll compete for the title of CUES Next Top Credit Union Exec and an educational package valued at $20,000, the organization said.
Last year’s winner was Devin Selte of the $11 billion Servus Credit Union in Edmonton, Alberta.
