MADISON, Wis. (5/3/13)--John Wiley--a veteran of the print and electronic publishing industry--is now the publisher of Credit Union Magazine, a monthly publication of the Credit Union National Association.
Wiley most recently spent 13 years as an advertising representative for the Credit Union Times.
"John is a seasoned publishing executive who also happens to have a passion and a dedication to the credit union system. That combination makes John the perfect leader to take CU Magazine to the next level," said Paul Gentile, CUNA executive vice president for strategic communications and engagement.
Gentile added that CUNA believes communication is paramount for ensuring its member credit unions are well-informed, not only on the credit union system, but the broader financial services market. For decades, he said, CU Magazine has given CUNA's membership the information necessary to best serve their credit unions. "John will help us continue that stellar record," he added.
Gentile noted that Wiley brings a broad digital media knowledge to the position that is vital for any publishing operation today. A key focus for Wiley will be to position CUNA to be interactive with readers, however they choose to engage.
"Publishing is no longer about 'one and done' deadlines. Media is constant," Gentile notes.
