Wendell Sebastian will retire on June 30 as executive director of the National Credit Union Foundation.
Sebastian has served at NCUF for almost exactly three years, from May 2010, after serving as CEO at Tampa, Fla.’s GTE FCU, now GTE Financial, for 20 years.
He has also been a key executive at NCUA and helped found Callahan & Associates, a noted credit union consulting firm.
“Bucky has done an outstanding job over the last three years in directing the foundation to focus its efforts on financial education and a number of key initiatives to benefit the credit union movement,” said CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney.
“We will miss him and want to thank him for his many contributions to the foundation as well as the CUNA system.”
The NCUF’s board chair, Floridacentral CU CEO Laida Garcia, announced she will appoint a search committee to recruit for a successor.
