Ken Ross, who was elevated from EVP/COO to president and chief operating officer of the Michigan Credit Union League last year, will leave the league, effective June 13, for a “new position outside the organization,” MCUL said.
MCUL chief executive officer Dave Adams will now assume Ross’s responsibilities until the league names a successor. MCUL will immediately begin a search process for an EVP/COO and will “look both internally and externally” to fill that position.
“On behalf of the MCUL & Affiliates, I extend my heartfelt thanks to Ken for his service during these past five years and I am confident that he will bring his strong skills, dedication and passion for excellence to his new role,” Adams said in a statement. “During Ken’s tenure, he helped our industry update the Michigan Credit Union Act, achieve advocacy excellence in defending our tax status and regulatory relief, and made countless contributions for the good of our members, employees and the credit union community in Michigan and nationally.”
The league explained that in December 2017 Adams had “re-focused” his CEO duties toward CU Solutions Group, a credit union service organization majority-owned by MCUL, while promoting Ross to the president/COO role of MCUL under Adams’ leadership.
