Bob Gallman has been named the new president/CEO of the Louisiana Credit Union League (LCUL).
Gallman, whose tenure begins March 1, joins LCUL following the departure of Anne Cochran, who announced her intent to retire last July after serving more than 40 years in the movement.
"Bob knows the credit union business inside and out. Working together, we look forward to strengthening and expanding our footprint throughout Louisiana," said LCUL board chairman Glen Beard. "His comprehensive knowledge of the day-to-day operations of our members, alongside his experience implementing strategic initiatives and developing business relationships, make him distinctly qualified to lead the organization."
For more than 20 years, Gallman has worked with the Cornerstone Credit Union League in Dallas, where he held multiple leadership roles, including the positions of executive vice president, chief operations officer and chief business services officer. Previously, he served as the vice president and senior marketing officer at CUNA Mutual Insurance Company.
"While the transition into retirement is bittersweet, I know that I am leaving the League in the best hands possible," said Cochran. "Bob's track record of effective and strategic leadership will guide the League through this transition and continue to grow our exceptional organization."
"In this new role, I have the distinct opportunity to work for a highly-respected association with a strong tradition of advocating on behalf of Louisiana credit unions. I will make it my top priority to ensure that LCUL remains a valuable resource for its members while advancing our advocacy efforts and strengthening the services we offer," said Gallman.
