Gesa Credit Union has named a new president and chief executive officer.
Don Miller, who has served as interim CEO since the departure of Christina Lethlean was announced last June, has been selected to fill the position permanently, the board of the Richland-based credit union announced.
His selection comes at the end of a nationwide search for a successor to Lethlean.
“Don’s broad knowledge of the financial industry and the markets Gesa serves make him the ideal candidate to lead Gesa into the future,” said board Chairman Gregg Andrews in a prepared statement.
Miller joined the Gesa team in 1987. He has held several executive level positions, most recently as the credit union’s chief sales officer. He is a graduate of Central Washington University and earned his master of business administration from Washington State University.
Gesa operates two locations in Walla Walla. It has served the Tri-Cities area since 1953 and has 114,000 members and $1.3 billion in assets.
