Hyland Begins First Day As NCUF Exec Director
WASHINGTON (8/26/13)--Former National Credit Union Administration Board Member Gigi Hyland begins her new position today as executive director of the National Credit Union Foundation.
 
She will operate from NCUF's Washington office, located in the Credit Union National Association's Washington-D.C. office. Hyland succeeds Wendell "Bucky" Sebastian, who retired June 30.
 
Last month, Hyland told News Now (July 16) she is eager to leverage her relationships in the financial services, philanthropic and policy arenas to raise awareness about NCUF, its reach and its potential.
 
"The program successes--Biz Kid$, REAL Solutions, the DE (Development Educator) program, targeted grants and the April Financial Literacy campaign--have been tremendous, but three is so much potential to do more," she said.
 
Bill Cheney, CUNA president/CEO and NCUF president, noted Hyland's "extensive insights into the philosophy and mission of credit unions will serve the entire movement well in this position."
 
Hyland served on NCUA's board from 2005 until October 2012. Prior to that, she was senior vice president and general counsel of Empire Corporate FCU, which is now Members United Corporate FCU.

She also served as CUNA's vice president of Corporate Credit Union Relations and executive director of the Association of Corporate Credit Unions from 1997 to 2002.
