SAN DIMAS, Calif. – There have been some management changes at the $20 billion WesCorp. Senior Vice President of Strategic Services Steve Powell; Senior Vice President of Correspondent Services Ken Shoga; and Vice President of Information Technology Murrel Freeman have all left the corporate. Details of their departures were not given, but the moves may have stemmed from a change in management style at WesCorp. Last May former Travis CU President/CEO Bob Siravo replaced long-time WesCorp President/CEO Dick Johnson. “I think it’s more that there’s a change in management style, and some change in direction in how things are done. Some folks will fit in, for others it’s not good chemistry, not a good fit,” said Jim Updike, president/CEO of Honda FCU and chairman of WesCorp’s Board. There was no word on successors for the three, or if the positions would be filled.
