La Pine named League of SE CUs CEO
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (6/30/09)--Patrick La Pine, executive vice president of association services at the Michigan Credit Union League (MCUL), was named president/CEO of the newly created League of Southeastern Credit Unions, it was announced Monday. The League of Southeastern Credit Unions comprises the Florida and Alabama credit union leagues. La Pine will replace retiring CEOs Guy Hood of the Florida league and Gary Wolter of the Alabama league. Florida and Alabama league members voted in March to combine into a single entity representing 332 credit unions with combined total assets of $55 billion (News Now March 6). While executive vice president of association services at the Michigan league, La Pine managed the MCUL governmental affairs, education, public affairs, information services and membership relations functions. La Pine also serves as executive director of the CURE Defense Fund, which was formed by MCUL to engage in ongoing extraordinary defense strategies to promote the credit union movement in legal and legislative arenas and advocacy activities. While La Pine “has big shoes to fill,” it was clear that he was the right candidate to lead the League of Southeastern Credit Unions, according to Mary Wood, league executive search committee chair. “He has a proven track record and is an experienced credit union leader,” Wood added.
