MADISON, Wis. (5/7/09)--Gary Smart, vice president of business services and lending for Crane FCU in Odon, Ind., was recently appointed to a vacant seat on the CUNA Lending Council executive committee.
The council is a source of best-practices information for lending professionals in the credit union industry. Smart began his career in the financial services industry in collections and most recently focused on consumer and small business lending. He is also a four-year member of the council and active on its conference committee. “Gary's background and experience will be a valuable addition to the executive committee as credit unions become more involved in business lending,” said Lloyd Gill, council chair and executive vice president and chief operations officer of City County CU in Margate, Fla.
