TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (8/4/11)--Credit Union 24 announced Wednesday that its board of directors has unanimously re-elected Mansel Guerry, president/CEO of Brighton FCU, Ridgeland, Miss., to an unprecedented fourth consecutive term as chairman of the board. The board also re-elected Bradley Blake, president/CEO, Florida State University CU, Tallahassee, Fla. as vice chairman, and Becky Hulett, chief financial officer, 121 Financial CU, Jacksonville, Fla., as secretary/treasurer. “Mansel’s leadership during the past three years as chairman has guided our credit union-owned network to continued growth and success despite a difficult economic climate, and challenges with industry regulations and market fluctuations,” said Jim Park, president/CEO of Credit Union 24. During Guerry’s tenure as chairman, Credit Union 24 has grown to become the nation’s largest credit union-owned point-of-sale (POS) network, with the nation’s largest surcharge-free ATM access available to financial institutions, and has developed electronic- funds-transfer products and services to help credit unions navigate the many challenges they’ve faced in recent years, said the company. Most recently, Credit Union 24 developed Debit Edge, a new point-of-sale (POS) program--offered in addition to its traditional credit union-owned POS program--to help credit unions protect their interchange income while facing the implementation of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Also under Guerry’s leadership as chairman, Credit Union 24 engaged FIS for delivery of switch services, which is expected to deliver even greater value and flexibility to its participating credit unions. Other board members include:
* Alvin Cowans, president/CEO of McCoy FCU, Orlando; * Adrian “Casey” Duplantier Jr., president/CEO of 1st Advantage FCU, Yorktown, Va.; * David Mooney, president/CEO of Alliant CU, Chicago; * Joan Nolan, vice president of operations support, IBM Southeast Employees FCU, Boca Raton, Fla.; * David Southall, president/CEO of Innovations FCU, Panama City Beach, Fla.; and * Dan Wollin, president/CEO of PCM Employees CU, Green Bay, Wis.
