Florida CU regulator Sharon Whiddon to retire
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (4/29/08)--Sharon Whiddon, bureau chief of Florida's Bureau of Credit Union Regulation, has announced she will retire, effective June 30. Whiddon has been with the bureau since Sept. 11, 1972--nearly 36 years, she told News Now. She started out as an examiner I in banking, but has served in the credit union division since 1985. She has served as bureau chief for the past 20 years. The bureau, which is within the state's Office of Financial Regulation, regulates 83 state-chartered credit unions. Whiddon told News Now that her most memorable responsibility during her years of service occurred in the early 1990s, when Florida converted all of its then-150 credit unions from private share insurance to federal share insurance under the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. Although she is retiring from the bureau, she says she'd like "to work for several more years and stay in the (credit union) industry."
