Filene adds 7 CEOs to research council
MADISON, Wis. (4/25/14)--The Filene Research Institute has added seven new credit union CEOs as members of its research council.
 
The Filene Research Council, which consists of 35 credit union executives who play integral roles in advancing the credit union movement, helps plan Filene's research projects. Their credit unions often pilot Filene projects and provide insights into the credit union system to researchers.
 
"The research council has played a crucial role in charting the future of cooperative finance since Filene's beginnings 25 years ago," said CEO Mark Meyer. "Under their guidance, we're committed to delivering research that not only addresses credit unions' and financial consumers' current needs but also identifies emerging issues before they become urgent."
 
The new members are:
  • Joseph Brancucci, president/CEO, GTE Financial, Tampa, Fla., with $1.6 billion in assets;
  • Robert Chavez, president/CEO, Sandia Laboratory FCU, Albuquerque, N.M., with $2 billion in assets;
  • Mitchell Chilcott, CEO, North Peace Savings and CU, Fort St. John, British Columbia, Canada, with $353 million in assets;
  • Ralph Luimes, president/CEO, Hald-Nor Community CU Ltd., Caledonia, Ontario, Canada, with $125 million in assets;
  • Kent Oram, president/CEO, Idaho Central CU, Pocatello, Idaho, with $1.5 billion in assets;
  • Gary Perez, president/CEO, USC CU, Los Angeles, with $378 million in assets; and
  • Chuck Purvis, president/CEO, Coastal FCU, Raleigh N.C., with $2.2 billion in assets.
