The board of directors at the $679 million DATCU in Denton, Texas, has decided to split the title of president and chief executive officer, appointing Glen McKenzie as president.
Dale Kimble will remain the credit union’s CEO, according to DATCU’s prepared statement.
McKenzie joined DATCU Credit Union in June of 2001 and has more than 25 years in the financial services industry, serving at DATCU as chief financial officer, executive vice president of operations and finally as executive vice president.
Kimble also joined DATCU in 2001 and has led the 73,000-member, 10-branch credit union to double-digit growth year after year, the north Texas credit union said in its announcement.
“Glen has been an outstanding leader over the course of his career and I have the greatest confidence that he will continue to lead DATCU in exemplary member service, growth and stability,” Kimble said in the announcement.
“The Board of Directors of DATCU believes that the growth and the financial success of DATCU in recent years have justified this move,” said James Well, DATCU’s board chair. “This is an acknowledgment of the exceptional talent and dedication displayed by both individuals, and it is a strategic step in solidifying the future leadership of DATCU.”
