CUNA Mutual's Klewin Announces Retirement
After 28 years of service, Bill Klewin, pictured at left, is retiring from the CUNA Mutual Group.
Andrea Stritzke, former vice president of regulatory compliance with PolicyWorks in Des Moines, Iowa, who was hired by CUNA Mutual in September, will succeed Klewin in January 2015.
Klewin joined the Madison, Wis.-based CUNA Mutual Group in 1986 as an associate legal counsel and held numerous leadership positions, including his most recent role as director of regulatory compliance for the company’s lending and payment security business.
Klewin made his mark on credit union lending with creative solutions such as LOANLINER product designs, according to the Madison, Wis.-based CUNA Mutual Group. Throughout the last several years, Klewin led the company’s lending products through a highly active regulatory environment and built a strong team of compliance experts.
“Bill will be missed, not only as a long-term and dedicated employee, but as a nationally recognized consumer lending expert and valued industry resource for credit unions,” Kathy Blumenfeld, vice president, CUNA Mutual Group lending and payment security, said. “The expertise he brought to the position through his many industry speaking engagements and relationships is difficult to replace. But we are thrilled to have Andrea step in and build on what Bill has established. Andrea is uniquely qualified to step into this position without missing a beat.”
Stritzke, pictured at left, served as vice president of regulatory compliance at PolicyWorks. Prior to joining PolicyWorks, she clerked for appellate judges in both the Iowa and Nebraska Court of Appeals.
Stritzke received her law degree from the University of Nebraska College of Law and bachelor's degree from the University of Nebraska. She is currently a member of the Iowa State Bar Association and Nebraska State Bar Association. Stritzke also is a designated credit union compliance expert and a certified BSA compliance specialist.
