The president and chief executive officer for Gesa Credit Union has resigned her post.
Christina Lethlean will leave the credit union July 5 to seek new challenges, according to an announcement Tuesday.
The board of directors has appointed Don Miller, chief sales officer, as interim CEO. He’s been with Gesa since 1987, serving in a number of executive roles over the last 25-plus years.
Gesa Credit Union operates two locations in Walla Walla and late last year entered into a $1 million, 11-year agreement that gave it naming rights of the Gesa Power House Theatre. The partnership secured funding for a number of improvements at the theater.
Lethlean is credited by the Gesa board of directors for navigating the credit union through a period of growth. “Christina’s foresight led to an augmentation of Gesa’s products and services (that) helped to attract new business and resulted in growth in the number of members choosing Gesa as their primary financial institution,” the announcement said. “During her tenure, financial performance improved and the credit union achieved significant strategic milestones.”
