Ontario, California (May 15, 2024): As the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues continue to advance its alliance with Utah’s Credit Unions, the Leagues’ board of directors are moving to the next phase in this transition plan with respect to the chief executive officer’s (CEO) responsibilities.

These responsibilities are effective May 15 through July 1, when Diana Dykstra retires. This week, Scott Simpson became CEO (effective May 15) of both the California Credit Union League and the Nevada Credit Union League (the Leagues).

Dykstra will retain the position of president of the Leagues until her retirement. This approach provides Simpson with the needed authority to manage and lead teams, operations, and advocacy efforts of the California and Nevada leagues.

As president, Dykstra will continue providing Simpson and the boards of directors for California and Nevada valuable support and insight while also winding down her responsibilities at the Leagues, as well as her industry leadership roles.

“As the Leagues embark on these changes to facilitate this transition, it would like to extend a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to Diana for her exceptional leadership,” said Larry Palochik, executive vice president of the Leagues “Her guidance has been invaluable, and the Leagues and its credit union leaders are grateful for her dedication to the organization.”

Simpson’s wealth of experience and visionary leadership will undoubtedly steer member credit unions toward continued success.

The Leagues look forward to keeping credit unions updated throughout this transition process and thanks credit union leaders for their continued support.
