NAPERVILLE, Ill. (5/28/15)--The boards of the Illinois Credit Union League (ICUL) and the ICUL Service Corp. (LSC) have named Tom Kane, LSC executive vice president/chief operating officer, as interim president/CEO.
Effective immediately, Sean Hession has left his position as president/CEO. Hession had served in this capacity for just over a year.
For the past 12 years, Kane has overseen LSC’s operations, finance and information technology areas. LSC is the league’s $60 million business subsidiary that provides financial products and services for more than 2,300 credit unions nationwide.
Kane’s previous leadership positions include Aon Corp., Quaker Oats and the Central Intelligence Agency.
“Our boards of directors will be meeting to discuss our plan to search for a permanent successor,” said Peter Paulson, ICUL chair and president/CEO of Corporate America Family CU, Elgin, Ill. “We have every confidence in Tom’s abilities to continue delivering the crucial products and services that help our member credit unions thrive in Illinois and across the country.”
CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle has reached out to Kane to extend any support needed during this leadership transition.
Hession was president/CEO of Callahan and Associates in Washington, D.C., before succeeding Dan Plauda as league president/CEO in 2014.
