MADISON, Wis. – Changes continue at CUNA Mutual Group. Credit Union Times has learned that Jim Gowan, former chief officer of sales, and Dan Meylink, former chief officer of lending, will be leaving the company effective at the end of the year to pursue other interests. Both Gowan and Meylink are veterans of the company, with Gowan joining the firm in 1984 and Meylink in 1990. These changes are part of continued restructuring at CUNA Mutual. It announced changes to its customer service operations recently and as part of that product leaders will report to the Senior Executive Team (SET) in an attempt to expedite decision making. The company’s former Executive Leadership Team (ELT) is being dissolved. Myelink and Gowan were both members of the ELT. The company’s new SET is comprised of six members, while the ELT was a 12-person team. The members of the SET are the following: Jeff Post, president/CEO; Dave Lundgren, executive vice president/chief administration officer; Jeff Holley, executive vice president/CFO; Bob Trunzo, executive vice president/chief sales officer; and David Marks, executive vice president/chief investments officer. There will be a sixth member named for executive vice president/chief products officer. “The departure is due to a situation that happens every day in the business world where a new CEO brings in his/her new team. I have contributed greatly to this transition and am proud of my accomplishments, including finishing `05 ahead of our sales plan. I have had an outstanding 22 -year career here but it is time to move on. There are still many people that I care for and respect there and I wish them all well in the future,” said Gowan.
