Brad Douglas will be the new CEO of the newly-formed Heartland Credit Union Association, its board of directors announced Wednesday.

Although Douglas has served on the board of directors for the $2.1 billion CommunityAmerica Credit Union in Lenexa, Kan., he holds no professional credit union experience. He served as board chair from 2011 to 2015 and is now the board’s vice chair.

In addition to his business development background, Douglas also spent years working for state and federal governments. He served as budget committee counsel for the late U.S Senator Paul Simon of Illinois and was director for the state of Missouri office in Washington. He also worked in congressional and administrative positions for the U.S. Small Business Administration.
