Florida league President Guy Hood to retire
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (1/10/08)--Florida Credit Union League (FCUL) President/CEO Guy M. Hood has announced plans to retire from the league in January 2009 after serving more than 20 years in that position. Hood began his tenure as president/CEO in 1988. During his career, he has seen significant transitions in the credit union movement, including the passage of the Credit Union Membership Access Act (H.R. 1151). Under his leadership the league has received many awards and recognitions from national organizations for leadership and accomplishments in advocacy, grassroots organization and communications. Most recently Hood received the National Credit Union Foundation "Anchor Award" for responsive actions in disaster response. Hood began his credit union career on April 1, 1970 as a field representative for the Alabama Credit Union League. He moved up the ranks to senior vice president of technical services before joining the Florida league. John Hirabayashi, FCUL board chairman, termed Hood "an outstanding leader" who is "at the top of his game." Under Hood's direction, the league "has become one of the premier leagues in the country. I know he will do an outstanding job his final year leading the league and setting the stage for a smooth transition." Although he will miss being part of the league daily, Hood said he was excited about the possibilities ahead for the league. "I am very confident my successor will have an equally rewarding experience as FCUL continues its mission to be the top resource for Florida credit unions." The FCUL Board of Directors has retained Credit Union Employment Resources (CUER) to perform the search for a successor. CUER is a service of Credit Union Resources Inc., an affiliated company of the Texas Credit Union League.
