COLUMBIA, Md. – The board of directors of the Maryland Credit Union League planned to make their choice for a new president/CEO by the end of January, and that’s just what they did on January 28. The MCUL Board selected Mike Beall as the organization’s new president/CEO. He begins in his new position on Feb. 11. He succeeds former League president/CEO Robert Steil whose contract was not renewed by the board last April. Beall, the son of the late NASA FCU President/CEO Donald Beall and longtime CU employee Barbara Beall, joins the League from the World Council of Credit Unions where he worked as manager of governmental affairs and partnerships in WOCCU’s Washington, D.C. office. A native of Maryland, Beall comes to the MCUL with league experience, having worked prior to his WOCCU position as EVP and head of advocacy for the North Carolina Credit Union League. While at WOCCU, he worked on legislative issues for WOCCU before Congress, helping to secure a continued funding mechanism for micro enterprise development for the U.S. Agency for International Development. Beall has also traveled on behalf of WOCCU and represented the organization on every continent and has visited more than 13 countries on behalf of WOCCU. The Maryland League advertised for the job on a national basis, and one of the leading candidates for the position was Michael Marschall, executive vice president and director of government affairs who had been acting CEO in the interim. Marschall told Credit Union Times he was “disappointed” he didn’t get the president’s position, “but I knew from the beginning since I was named acting president, that this wasn’t permanent and there were no guarantees I would get the job permanently.” Marschall said he was the only internal candidate for the position, and he was not aware how many applications the League received externally for the spot. “I know Mike Beall from his days at the North Carolina League and World Council (of Credit Unions), and I’m looking forward to working with him,” said Marschall. Once Beall starts his new position, Marschall said he expectes the new president will want to sit down with all of the League staff “to get up to speed with what everyone’s doing, learn about the League’s strategic plan and their role in it.” As for his future plans with the League, Marschall said he has no plans to leave. “I was juggling both jobs for awhile, and my acting president’s responsibilities were my `night job’. I’m ready to going back to just having a day job,” he said. -
