New CEO takes helm at Zeal Credit Union
Julie Kreinbring has taken over as president and CEO of Zeal Credit Union in Livonia, Mich.
She has served as interim CEO since August and took on that role permanently on Wednesday, the $603 million-asset credit union said. Kreinbring succeeds Anthony Carnarvon, who stepped down to spend more time with his family, according to a spokesman for the credit union.
“I am honored and excited to lead Zeal Credit Union into its next phase of growth and innovation” Kreinbring said in a press release on Wednesday. “The opportunities that lie ahead for us are considerable and I am excited to navigate this next chapter for Zeal Credit Union.”
With over 25 years of leadership experience, Kreinbring most recently served as chief strategy officer at Zeal.
Before her time at Zeal, Kreinbring worked as the executive vice president at America’s Christian Credit Union where she oversaw a merger of equals that created the biggest Catholic credit union in California.
Kreinbring serves on the board of the credit union service organization, Member Student Lending.
Zeal earned $2.1 million in net income during the first half of 2019, down 27% from a year earlier.
