Thomson named president at Idaho league
BOISE, Idaho (3/13/14)--The Idaho Credit Union League named longtime league employee and interim leader Kathy Thomson to the president/CEO position.
 
The appointment of Thomson, who had been interim president/CEO since the November departure of Chris Johnson, was official Feb. 12.
 
"I truly believe in the power of credit unions to change their members' lives," Thomson said, adding, "...and I believe Idaho credit unions need the Idaho Credit Union League to do that."
 
Credit unions need to be able to focus on serving their members while the league focuses on supporting credit unions, she said.
 
The 2013 Quarterly U.S. Map Review from the National Credit Union Administration showed Idaho led the nation in loan and membership growth, clocking in with 16.7% and 8.1% gains respectively. Idaho also was home to the largest increase in shares and deposits nationwide. (See March 6 News Now: State data shows where strongest growth occurred.)
 
Thomson has served the league in a number of capacities since joining the staff in 1973. She is a Credit Union Development Educator and holds designations as a Certified League Executive and Certified Credit Union Executive.
 
"Kathy is a capable, devoted and hard-working professional," said Shane Berger, league board chair and president/CEO of $178 million-asset Beehive FCU, Rexburg. "We have great confidence that she will lead our trade association to future success."
