CU Hero: Last Chance to Vote!

Who will be the 2012 CU Hero of the Year?

April 15, 2012

Please join Credit Union Magazine in recognizing four exceptional credit union leaders.

You’ve nominated them as your CU Heroes and read about their accomplishments in the magazine. It’s time to select the 2012 CU Hero of the Year!

The candidates are:

Rudy Hanley,  president/CEO, SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union, Santa Ana, Calif. His political involvement, work ethic, and integrity have benefited his own credit union and the credit union movement overall.

• Ron Kase, CEO, Landmark Credit Union, New Berlin, Wis. One of his proudest accomplishments: Leading his credit union through remarkable growth, including the creation of 450 jobs in southeastern Wisconsin.

• Frank Matous Sr. (posthumous), former CEO of Tandem Federal Credit Union, Warren, Mich. A credit union pioneer, he encouraged his four sons to stay active in the credit union movement.

• Joe Robertson, retired president/CEO, Our Community Credit Union, Shelton, Wash. His credit union garnered a record $18 million increase in total deposits for 2009 (doubling the previous year's increase), during the slow recovery from the recession.

Voting will take place through April 30. This year’s winner will be honored at CUNA’s America’s Credit Union Conference in San Diego, June 17-20.
