Southeast Corporate CEO will retire in 2010
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (9/10/09)--Southeast Corporate CEO Bill Birdwell announced he is proceeding with plans to retire when he turns 65 in February. “Together we have built a solid management team at Southeast Corporate and they demonstrate to me and to members every day their high level of commitment and knowledge,” Birdwell’s said. “I am very proud of them and I know your needs will continue to be well-met.” “Finding a replacement for [Birdwell] has been a work in progress,” said Southeast Board Chairman Tim McMurry, who reported that a search is actively underway to find his replacement. McMurry called Birdwell a “true craftsman” of corporate credit unions with a deep devotion to the credit union movement. Birdwell’s more-than-30-year’s tenure in the credit union movement also includes service at Southwest Corporate, WesCorp and Volunteer Corporate. “His leadership within the industry has had a positive impact and will be sorely missed,” McMurry said. The right replacement will be capable of positioning Southeast Corporate to continue to serve credit unions in the future, McMurry said. The board is reviewing candidate qualifications and hopes to make a decision by year-end.
