BEAVERTON, Ore. (6/4/08)— Troy Stang, an executive with Arizona FCU in Phoenix, Ariz., will become president/CEO of the Credit Union Association of Oregon (CUAO) effective July 1.
The announcement concludes the board’s six-month search process, said Shirley Cate, chair of CUAO’s board of directors. She said Stang is a “proven executive with an exceptional blend of strategic, analytical, business and leadership skills.” Former CUAO President/CEO Gene Poitras retired Nov. 30 after 32 years with the association. Stang currently oversees Arizona FCU’s marketing and brand efforts, membership and market growth, research, business development and sales, public affairs, governmental affairs and community service. He served a stint with the U.S. Treasury Department before joining the credit union. Stang was vice president of staff and public relations at the Texas Credit Union League, where he specialized in political and operational guidance within the state of Texas and at the federal level. He also managed and developed the Hispanic outreach initiatives for credit unions. In a release, Stang said his commitment is “to promote opportunities for the continued growth and development of CUAO’s affiliated credit unions through collective advocacy and public affairs efforts; and the delivery of innovative products and services. I look forward to calling Oregon home."
