CUNA announced Monday it has promoted from within, naming Jill Tomalin to the position of executive vice president and chief operating officer of its Madison, Wis., operations.
Tomalin succeeds John Franklin, who retired from CUNA last month.
A 13-year veteran of CUNA, Tomalin will oversee all of CUNA's Madison-based operations revolving around meetings and conferences, information technology, training and development and vendor sales.
She will also oversee the CUNA Councils, and CUNA Strategic Services, the CUNA/league-owned subsidiary offering products and services to credit unions. "Jill's long experience in the credit union system, combined with her talents and conceptual vision, furnish her with unique insights to the challenges of this position and the needs of credit unions across the country," said CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney.
In her new role, Tomalin will oversee CUNA’s Center for Professional Development, the training and development arm of CUNA, as well as information technology, the CUNA Councils, meetings and conferences and vendor sales. She will also oversee CUNA Strategic Services, a joint venture of CUNA and state credit union leagues.
Tomalin’s most recent position was senior vice president, Association Services, where she oversaw many of the same departments and functions she will continue to supervise in her new role. She joined CUNA in 2000 as director of educational resources. Prior to that, she served in management roles for the Texas Credit Union League and Credit Union Executives Society.
Tomalin is a credit union development educator and a certified league executive, and earned a bachelor’s degree and an MBA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
