Five Months In, Chris Johnson Out as CEO at Idaho Credit Union League
Five months after being named the new president/CEO of the Idaho Credit Union League, Chris Johnson left the job on Nov. 22, ICUL Interim President/CEO Kathy Thomson said Friday.
Thomson said she cannot discuss the reason for Johnson’s departure and would not say whether he was terminated or had resigned.
She also said the board sent an email to its 40 member credit unions and business partners saying that Johnson was no longer with the ICUL and that she had been appointed interim president/CEO.
However, the board did not release a public statement after Johnson’s departure.
“They (the board) do have a board meeting scheduled for Feb. 11, and they are going to be discussing the (president/CEO) issue at that time” Thomson said. “Until then, I am the interim president and we will see what happens after that.”
A former CUNA executive, Johnson replaced Alan Cameron who retired June 3.
Johnson was vice president of state governmental affairs at CUNA from 2006 through 2010 and prior to that was managing associate general counsel for Freddie Mac. He most recently was a consultant with The Collingwood Group in Washington, D.C., working with compliance consulting and mortgage purchase and servicing clients.
