His mind for challenging the status quo and inspiring growth will benefit the board and company as we continue investing in data, technology and innovation."

He also serves on both the New York and national Federal Reserve Board Community Depository Institutions Advisory Council, acting as regional chair.

Muse attended Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, where he attained his undergraduate degree, master's degree in accounting, and his Master of Business Administration.

"It's an honor and privilege to join the CUNA Mutual Group Board," Muse said. "CUNA Mutual plays such an integral part in the credit union system and remains forward looking, relevant, and important for our industry. "I am excited about the opportunity to help the organization continue to grow, be successful, and provide a positive impact not only in the financial world but in its community."

Trunzo offered his gratitude to Smith for his years of service to the CUNA Mutual Group Board of Directors.
