NEW: Illinois league names Hession to succeed CEO Plauda
NAPERVILLE, Ill. (2/4/14, UPDATED 3:42 p.m. CT)--Sean Hession, current president/CEO of Callahan and Associates in Washington, D.C., has been named to succeed Dan Plauda as president/CEO of the Illinois Credit Union System (ICUS) .
 
Hession, a former Omaha businessman, has been with Callahan and Associates, since early January 2012. Earlier, he served in a series of staff and operational positions at First National Bank of Omaha over a decade.
 
Last June 10, Plauda announced his intentions to retire from the top league position on June 30 this year. There will be a 60-day transition period, starting May 1, during which both Hession and Plauda will be on board at the league.
 
Plauda joined the ICUS staff in May 1977, serving at that time as the organization's first general counsel. Before that, he was a partner in a Minneapolis law firm.
 
At the time of his retirement announcement, Geri Burek, ICUS chairman of the board, said that, because of Plauda's leadership legacy, the association is "well positioned for great success for many years to come." And Credit Union National Association President/CEO Bill Cheney noted that Plauda "contributed greatly to the growth and success of the Illinois league and the state's credit unions during a distinguished career that has spanned nearly four decades."
