The Board of Directors of the Missouri Credit Union Association (MCUA) today announced its appointment of Don Cohenour as the organization’s new president/CEO, effective immediately. Cohenour, formerly named interim president/CEO, succeeds Mike Beall, who left the company in November 2012.
“Don Cohenour is the ideal candidate to continue driving the strategic direction of the organization,” says Dennis Pierce, MCUA’s chairman of the board. “Don’s knowledge of credit unions combined with the strength of relationships built throughout his tenure will ensure MCUA maintains a strong connection with its membership.”
Cohenour, an 18-year MCUA veteran, leaves his position as chief membership officer to take the leadership role. In this role, Don was responsible for managing the field representatives within the state, serving as an executive field representative with all member credit unions and providing overall responsibility for credit union relationships. He was also responsible for credit union staff and volunteer development, consulting services, professional development and all product and service sales in the state.
“I am looking forward to my new role with MCUA and my continued work with credit union advocates throughout the state,” says Cohenour. “The initiatives we set in motion make this an exciting time to lead the organization and make the credit unions of Missouri grow.”
