He retires this month after 28 years as sole CEO of the $51 million asset credit union; * Larry Stapleton, president/CEO, United Southeast FCU, Bristol, Tenn. His credit union was one of the pilots for CUNA Mutual Group's Lending Plan in the early 1970s; and * Mendell Thompson, president/CEO, America’s Christian CU, Glendora, Calif.
