The Massachusetts Credit Union League (MCUL) Board of Directors has named Paul Gentile as president/CEO effective January 6, News Now reports.
Gentile succeeds Dan Egan who is retiring after 32 years of service to the league. MCUL has management agreements in place with the New Hampshire Credit Union League and the Credit Union Association of Rhode Island. The appointment of Gentile culminates a comprehensive search process that included members of the boards from each of the three leagues.
“Paul is a proven leader. He brings a track record of success in advocacy, communication and product development that will serve our member credit unions well as we strive to meet their changing needs,” says MCUL Chairman David Surface.
Gentile currently serves as CUNA’s executive vice president of strategic communications and engagement. During his tenure at CUNA, he helped launch a number of new national communication vehicles, including The Cheney Report and Inside Exchange.
“It is a great honor to succeed Dan and build on the strong foundation he helped create here,” Gentile says. “I look forward to working strategically with the dedicated volunteers on the boards and the talented staff to best serve our member credit unions in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island.”
Prior to joining CUNA, Gentile was president/CEO of the New Jersey Credit Union League.
“In a short time, Paul has made significant advancements here at CUNA,” says CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney. “I am thrilled that he remains part of the CUNA/league system and I look forward to our continued partnership as he brings his leadership to the three associations.”
