WASHINGTON (8/25/14 12:05 p.m. ET)--Credit Union National Association interim President/CEO Bill Hampel announced this morning that John Magill, executive vice president for government affairs and special assistant to the president, will be leaving his position at CUNA on Sept. 5.
"John Magill has been a significant leader in CUNA's advocacy team for almost nine years, and we wish him well," Hampel said, adding," John will be sorely missed."
Magill, a 30-year veteran of Capitol Hill, joined CUNA in May 2006 as senior vice president of legislative affairs. He was promoted to the executive vice president post in September 2011.
"It's been a fulfilling, rewarding experience and an important part of my life," Magill said of his time at CUNA. He noted that it is expected that a new CUNA president/CEO will be named in the next few weeks.
"So the timing is right for me to step into my next challenge in our nation's capital, where so many of us are fortunate to work and call home."
As executive vice president for government affairs and special assistant to the president, Magill provided strategic counsel on legislative and political issues while overseeing the day to day operations of those key advocacy areas. He also handled a number of administrative and other related matters inherent in the daily operations of the CUNA Washington office.
