The Illinois Credit Union League announced last week the selection of Sean Hession, the president and CEO of Washington, D.C.’s Callahan & Associates, to replace outgoing President and CEO Dan Plauda.
“It is an honor to be joining ICUL as its President and CEO,” Hession said. “The organization has a rich history and a great reputation for member services. I am eager to begin my service to Illinois credit unions and more than 2,000 LSC clients nationwide.”
Hession helped lead Callahan & Associates to a record performance and develop innovative approaches to client services. He will replace Plauda, who is retiring, on May 1.
“ICUL is excited to have Sean Hession join us as President and CEO,” Geri Burek, the chairman of the ICUL’s executive search committee, said. “He comes to ICUL with a great deal of experience in strategy and innovation, and brings the vision that propels organizations to greater heights… His unique vision and drive will ensure continued success for the credit union system. The Board is excited about ICUL’s future under Sean’s leadership.”
ICUL is the primary trade group for Illinois credit unions and provides members with operating information, advocacy resources and educational development opportunities.
