ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (1/16/14)--Paul Stull, a senior vice president at Arizona State CU, will be the next CEO of the Credit Union Association of New Mexico, the board announced Wednesday.
Stull has been with the $1.47 billion-asset credit union in Phoenix for seven years as senior vice president of strategy and brand, overseeing corporate strategy and planning, product management, and marketing.
He replaces Sylvia Lyon, who is retiring March 7. Lyon joined CUANM in 1994 and became CEO in 2003.
"I am proud to be selected to lead a strong group of credit unions in New Mexico. One-third of all New Mexico residents are credit union members, so leveraging that strength and the cooperative power of our credit unions is at the top of my agenda," Stull said.
Stull is active at the state and national level of political advocacy programs, earning the honor of Arizona political advocate of the year in 2010. He is a director of the OneAZ Community Foundation and has served on the Marketing Association of Credit Unions board of directors.
Stull has an undergraduate degree in marketing from Elmira (N.Y.) College and is a graduate of the Said Business School at Oxford University.
"New Mexico is a state that exemplifies the American spirit of independence, and its credit unions are a symbol of that spirit. I look forward to speaking up and speaking out on issues that impact them and their members," he said.
