“We are very excited for John to join the credit union as Chief Operations Officer.

We look forward to seeing John’s contributions to the growth and success of CSE,” said CSE President/CEO Matt Koch.

McDonald has served CSE for over four decades, and as COO since 2008. She has been one of the driving forces behind the organization’s success. Regarding her time with CSE and upcoming retirement, McDonald says “I’m proud and honored to have been given the prestigious responsibility of guiding this organization’s operations team for many years and helping CSE grow into the wonderful credit union it is today.
