ARLINGTON, Va. (1/8/13)--After 13 years at the head of the National Association of Federal Credit Union (NAFCU), Fred Becker has decided to retire effective July 31, 2013.
The NAFCU board of directors has named Dan Berger, NAFCU executive vice president of government affairs, to succeed Becker as president/CEO.
Berger joined NAFCU in January 2006 as senior vice president of government affairs. Three-and-a-half years later he was named executive vice president and in that post has managed five divisions. Prior to joining NAFCU, Berger was vice president of government relations for America's Community Bankers and, before that, chief of staff for U.S. Representative Katherine Harris.
Credit Union National Association President/CEO Bill Cheney, hearing Becker's news, said Monday, "When I served as a member of the NAFCU board, I worked with Fred on a variety of issues. Congratulations to him on his service to the credit union movement; I wish him well in his future endeavors. I also look forward to working with Dan when he assumes his new role."
