Okla. CU assoc. announces Jones as presidentCEO
OKLAHOMA CITY (9/10/10)--Gary Jones is the new president/CEO of the Credit Union Association of Oklahoma (CUAOk). Jones told News Now that he is excited about his new role, and the opportunity to work with his credit union friends. “We are in a great position to help credit unions deal with the unique challenges in the [credit union] industry,” he said. The biggest challenge, he said, will be charting the course during change. The association recently changed its name to CUAOk and built a new facility, moving its headquarters to Oklahoma City from Tulsa. It also underwent some staff changes. However, Jones said CUAOk wants to ensure a seamless transition for member credit unions in how it delivers products and services. Jones previously served as president/CEO of will Serve CU in Tulsa until his retirement in 2007. He then joined CUAOk. He has served as interim president since July. “When credit unions were first established in 1934, the financial world was going through some challenges,” Jones said. “When we look at what we’re facing today [in the financial world] some of the challenges we faced over the last few years are exactly why credit unions were created.”
