John Murphy, who has served for 24 years as president/CEO of the Maine Credit Union League and its service subsidiary, Synergent, will retire, effective June 1, 2017.
"It's a true privilege to work both for and with so many great people over the years in an industry that is so important in the lives of consumers,” Murphy said in announcing his retirement.
The organization, which has been focused on succession planning for the past 4 years, has retained the services of O'Rourke & Associates to conduct a search for Murphy's successor.

Murphy was appointed president/CEO of the Maine Credit Union League and Synergent in July 1992. Throughout his career, he has served on numerous industryrelated boards and committees including serving on the CUNA board, where he chaired the Corporate Governance Committee.
He also served on several committees of the American Association of Credit Union Leagues, where he chaired the political involvement and grassroots committee.
