Paul Stull Eyes Changes for New Mexico Credit Unions
On his first day on the job as the new president/CEO of the Credit Union Association of New Mexico, Paul Stull had little time for workplace introductions and other customary pleasantries.
He traveled to the state capital of Santa Fe, met all day with legislators and the attorney general's staff to lobby for a new bill to strengthen data breach notification laws and, finally at 8 p.m., he spoke before a House Judiciary Committee asking members to approve the proposed legislation that's been gaining more attention because of the recent Target breach fiasco.
Stull sees opportunities for credit unions to work together to improve operational efficiencies and allow cooperatives to provide new services they would not be able to deliver on their own to keep and attract members.
“There is some of that going on, but I think there is a lot more value that can be mined out of the cooperative spirit,” he said. “That is something I am going to work very hard to improve.”
