For Release on March 30, 2023:
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, California – Dennis Devine, President/CEO of Alliant Credit Union of Chicago, Illinois, has been appointed to the Co-op Solutions Board of Directors. He will stand for election to a full three-year term at the Annual Co-op Shareholders meeting on May 3, 2023, during the Co-op THINK 23 conference.
“We are thrilled to add Dennis’ depth of experience to the Co-op board,” said Joan Opp, Chairperson of Co-op, and President/CEO of Stanford FCU. “Given his leadership in the successful digital transformation of one of the nation’s largest credit unions, his contributions to the oversight of Co-op will be a welcome addition.”
A national digital financial institution, the $18 billion Alliant (alliantcreditunion.org) has been a long-term partner of Co-op, utilizing a wide variety of the tools, technology and services available within the Co-op digital payments ecosystem. The credit union also has been closely associated with the development of Co-op fintech innovations as a frequent beta tester and participant in the Co-op Co-creation Council client program.
Under Devine’s leadership, Alliant was named Best Overall Credit Union in 2022 by Buyside from the Wall Street Journal, CNBC and The Balance. Kiplinger awarded Alliant its 2022 Gold Credit Union honor, and NerdWallet gave Alliant a five-star recognition for Best Online Banks in 2022.
Devine has decades of experience in financial services, having held senior leadership roles at KeyBank, Citizens Financial Group and PNC Bank. Earlier in his career, he was a management consultant with McKinsey & Company. Devine is active in the financial services industry and his community, including serving as a board trustee for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and as board chair for the Alliant Credit Union Foundation. He is a graduate of Harvard Law School and the University of Michigan.
“It’s a privilege to serve on a board with such a great opportunity to advance the movement,” said Devine. “As credit unions compete for member loyalty in what has become a very busy playing field, we need a powerful set of fintech tools capable of delivering elegant, seamless financial experiences. But we also need fintech partners like Co-op that share the people-over-profits philosophy and keep the member at the center of everything we do together to grow the industry.”
In addition to Opp and Devine, Co-op’s Board includes Jackie Buchanan, Genisys FCU; Ezra Eckhardt, STCU; Bob Falk, Purdue FCU; Theresa Mann, NASA FCU; Todd Marksberry, Canvas CU; Greg Mitchell, First Tech FCU; Ricky Otey, Partners FCU; Rudy Pereira, Premier America CU; and Harold Roundtree, UNCLE CU.
