The National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) has named Gigi Hyland its new executive director, effective Aug. 26.

Hyland was most recently a member of the three-person National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) board, serving from 2005 until October 2012.

"Gigi brings a wealth of credit union experience and an understanding of the non-profit sector that will serve the foundation well," said NCUF Board Chairman Laida Garcia.

Prior to the NCUA, Hyland was senior vice president and general counsel of Empire Corporate FCU, now Members United Corporate FCU.

Hyland will operate from the Credit Union National Association's Washington, D.C. office, where she has worked previously. Hyland was CUNA's vice president of Corporate Credit Union Relations and executive director of the Association of Corporate Credit Unions from 1997-2002.

"I am excited about this opportunity and anxious to begin working with the great team and board that we have at the foundation, as well as its many credit union supporters," Hyland said. "The foundation is well-positioned to continue to be a leader in financial literacy and education, which has never been more important for consumers and remains as one of the core missions of the credit union system," Hyland said.

Hyland succeeds Bucky Sebastian, who recently announced his retirement.
