Catalyst Corporate announces board
DULUTH, Ga. (8/2/11)--Eleven credit union leaders were named to the board of the future Catalyst Corporate FCU, which will arise from the merger of Georgia Corporate and Southwest Bridge Corporate. Beginning on Sept. 6, the first day of Catalyst Corporate operations, the credit union’s board will include:
* Lin Hodges, president/CEO, Associated CU, Norcross, Ga., chairman; * Bobbie Threlkeld, president/CEO, Baptist Health FCU, Little Rock, Ark.; * Ronald Johnston, president/CEO, Artesia (N.M.) CU; * John Papagno, chief financial officer, Healthcare’s Cooperative CU, Jacksonville, Fla.; * Ayn Talley, president/CEO, Houston (Texas) Police FCU; * Michael Hooper, La Capitol FCU, Baton Rouge, La.; * Rick Hein, president/CEO, OSU FCU, Corvallis, Ore.; * Connie Cofer, senior vice president/chief financial officer, Communication FCU, Oklahoma City, Okla.; and * Rod Taylor, Barksdale FCU, president/CEO, Bossier City, La.
Serving on the Supervisory Committee will be:
* Craig Atkinson, president/CEO, Houston (Texas) Highway CU; * Kerry Parker, president/CEO, A+ FCU, Austin, Texas; and * Candy Bracewell, senior vice president/chief financial officer, LGE Community CU, Marietta, Ga.
More than 857 credit unions and other organizations throughout the country have committed to Catalyst Corporate, according to Greg Moore, president/CEO of Georgia Corporate. “With a membership this size, the decisions of Catalyst’s board of directors will have considerable influence on the credit union community,” Moore said. “One of our objectives was to ensure that the board truly represents our membership as a whole,” said Dianne Addington, president/CEO of Southwest Bridge Corporate. The board and supervisory committee were selected through a process that began early this year, when Georgia Corporate’s board of directors appointed a Governance Advisory Council consisting of Tim Adams, president/CEO, SPCO CU, Houston; Willie Jacobs, president/CEO, White Sands CU, Las Cruces, N.M., and Randy Smith, president/CEO, Randolph-Brooks CU, Live Oaks, Texas. They were charged with evaluating more than 21 executives who applied to serve as directors or committee members for Catalyst Corporate FCU.
