ST. PAUL, Minn. (2/14/11)--The Minnesota Credit Union Network (MnCUN) has undergone an internal reorganization so it can better serve member credit unions as a more focused, strategic trade association, announced MnCUN Friday.
MnCUN has separated its not-for-profit operations from its for-profit operations to allow individual focus on both areas. Governmental affairs continues as one of the network's core functions. The new executive team includes:
* Kristina Wright, formerly vice president-communications, now vice president-association services; * John Ferstl, who will join MnCUN as vice president-Network Service Corp.; and *
Mara Humphrey, who will continue as vice president-governmental affairs.
Wright has led the communications department since 2000. Ferstl has nine years' experience with a metro area credit union, where he directed sales and consumer lending. Humphrey joined the network as its chief lobbyist in 2006. According to MnCUN President/CEO Mark Cummins, "this new internal structure will allow the network staff to contribute more resources to areas of major importance, including governmental affairs and public relations. In addition, we look forward to strengthening the Network Service Corp. to offer additional value and increased products and services to credit unions."
