Credit Union of America announced the retirement of its Hutchinson manager and the hiring of his replacement.
David Dick, manager of CUA Hutchinson retired June 30.
Dick has served the credit union community well for over 35 years. He was president of both the Kansas Credit Union Association in Wichita and the Central Kansas Credit Union in Hutchinson before its merger with CUA.
Since the merger, he has served as CUA’s Hutchinson Branch Manager. CUA and the credit union industry are thankful for Dick’s contributions throughout his career and know that both CUA staff and members will miss him greatly.
Clint Bontrager has joined the credit union as Branch Manager of the Hutchinson office, replacing Dick.
Bontrager is from the Yoder area. He graduated from Haven High School and then earned his BBA in Finance from Wichita State University.
“After working as a retail district manager in Missouri, it feels good to come back to Hutchinson,” Bontrager said. “Both the welcoming atmosphere at CUA and the friendliness of the community have made the transition back to Kansas smooth and inviting. I was pleasantly surprised that CUA’s motto of Welcome to Friendly is indicative of the culture throughout the organization.”
Bontrager will be responsible for member experience, growth goals, management of staff/employee engagement, and community involvement in the Hutchinson area.
