ONTARIO, Calif. – The California/Nevada CU League, which recent terminated several longtime executives as part of a reorganization, has filled several of those vacancies, some with former credit union CEOs.
The League on Tuesday said Tony Kitt, former chief operating officer at WesCorp FCU, has been hired as the new senior vice president of strategic innovation and planning. Alta Vista CU President Larry Palochik was named senior vice president of member solutions, which encompasses all member-facing services: membership, communications, marketing, education and training, research and collaboration, and CU Business Solutions.
Also, Lynn Athens, former CEO of Spectrum FCU in San Francisco, has joined the League as vice president of human resources and Collaborative Office Solutions.
Joe Keller, who was vice president of digital media at WesCorp, was named vice president of digital media and C-Sun Studios.
Additionally, Rodney Wilson has joined the Leagues as state legislative and regulatory lobbyist. Wilson comes to the Leagues from his position as legislative director for Assemblywoman Betsy Butler, D-Los Angeles. He is working in the Sacramento office.
“These changes have resulted in a better alignment of talent and focus so the Leagues can truly provide increasing value and relevance to our member credit unions,” said Leagues President Diana Dykstra.
