The network named Bob Bjelland, president/CEO of Fergus FCU, Lewistown, as Professional of the Year. The award recognizes Bjelland’s contributions to credit unions and is one of the highest honors bestowed in Montana’s credit union system. Bjelland has been Fergus president/CEO for 24 years, and his credit union career extends 35 years. Under his tenure, Fergus FCU expanded services and assets and is creating a main street park for its community. The network also honored Bryan Fox, a member of the Russell Country FCU board of directors, for his commitment and contributions to the Montana credit union movement, his credit union, and his community during the past 30 years by presenting him the 2009 Mitch Reed Montana Volunteer of the Year Award. “Bryan’s 30 years of service to Russell Country FCU [Great Falls] have made him a seasoned board member, yet he still maintains a desire to keep up on the newest trends developing within the credit union industry,” said Bernie Neibauer, Russell Country FCU president/CEO. “Bryan understands the need for change in an ever-changing business climate. I appreciate his insight and value his opinion on local, national and international financial topics.” Fox assisted in two mergers and the implementation of credit and debit cards.
