ST. LOUIS (12/2/09)--Missouri Credit Union Association (MCUA) President/CEO Rosie Holub announced Tuesday that she will retire at the end of December 2010. Holub began her tenure with MCUA in December 1999. She previously was CEO of the New Mexico and Wyoming Credit Union Leagues.
She also has senior management experience at Kirtland FCU, Albuquerque, N.M., and Anchorage-based AlaskaUSA FCU and Denali FCU. While serving as MCUA CEO, Holub guided negotiations that led to the passing of a state bill that allowed state-chartered credit unions to realize growth after a seven-year bank lawsuit halted field-of-membership expansion. “In the 10 years that Rosie has served as the leader of MCUA--and indeed before that when she was with the New Mexico league--she has been a solid source of insight as to the partnership between the leagues and the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and how we can work together on behalf of all credit unions,” said CUNA President/CEO Dan Mica. “Her very practical experience as a credit union executive has been particularly of value to me personally, and I appreciate her graciousness in giving CUNA the benefit of her advice in credit union matters. We appreciate Rosie greatly, and thank her for her service,” Mica said. Under Holub’s leadership, Missouri’s credit union assets grew 57% to more than $10 billion as of June. She also instituted a patronage rebate program for core services corporate products through Credit Union Partnership, MCUA’s wholly owned subsidiary. Other accomplishments include:
* Expanding interstate item processing services; * Expanding the shared branching program to 92 outlets from nine outlets; and * Refunding $500,000 of dues income to member credit unions during the financial crisis.
Holub is chair of Credit Union House in Washington, D.C. She also served as chair of the American Association of Credit Union Leagues; chair of the Credit Union Legislative Action Council; a member of the CUNA board and executive committee; a board member of the Filene Research Institute; and in leadership positions on committees, including CUNA’s Renaissance Commission. The MCUA board has identified a selection and recruitment process for a new CEO. The board is distributing a request for proposal to search firms.
