Walter Laskos Named CU Magazine Editor-in chief
MADISON, Wis. (10/10/13)--Walter J. "Walt" Laskos will be the next editor-in-chief of Credit Union Magazine, effective Oct. 28, the Credit Union National Association announced Wednesday.
 
A well-known figure in the credit union system with a passion for promoting the good work of credit unions, Laskos will play a key role in continuing to elevate Credit Union Magazine as the premier source of information for credit unions, CUNA said.
 
"We are thrilled to have Walt as editor of the magazine," said Paul Gentile, CUNA executive vice-president of strategic communications and engagement. "I'm confident that his passion will reinvigorate our team as they continue to make Credit Union Magazine the go-to source for credit union news. We are thankful to our longtime editor Steve Rodgers, whose impressive work has set a foundation that leaves us well-positioned for the magazine's next stage."
 
Most recently, Laskos headed up the Laskos Group, which focused on member and employee communications for credit unions. He provided communications support for The Defense Credit Union Council and the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions.
 
Prior to that, he spent 10 years as public relations director for Western Corporate FCU or WesCorp, where he served as spokesperson and established a succession of substantial public relations programs. They included "Operation Best Wishes," which provided free Webcast sessions to the military and their families during the holiday season, and a Web-TV program marketing International Credit Union Day, designed to foster awareness of credit unions and the impact of their work throughout the world.
 
Rodgers, the current editor-in-chief, will provide transitional support over the coming months for the magazine and continued support for CUNA's eScan. He has been with CUNA's publications for 33 years.
