Troy Stang

CEO & President • NWCUA

Troy Stang serves as the President and CEO of the Northwest Credit Union Association (NWCUA) and the Idaho Credit Union League (ICUL), the trade associations representing more than 180 not-for-profit, member-owned credit unions in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.  More than 6.3 million consumers – 50 percent of the Northwest population—are members of those credit unions.

Under Stang’s leadership, the Association is focused on nurturing an innovative public policy environment to ensure cooperative financial services are a relevant choice in the marketplace. In addition to legislative and regulatory advocacy, the Association provides public relations, compliance, and professional development to participating credit unions.

Stang has been leading Northwest-based credit union trade associations for nearly a decade, which complements his public service and direct policy experience in President George W. Bush’s administration, as senior staff to the US Treasury Secretary. Before serving the White House, Stang had over a decade of extensive hands-on financial institution experience in large and complex credit unions across the nation.

Stang is committed to building awareness about credit unions’ not-for-profit structure as cooperatives, the value of the tangible benefits they generate and deliver to their members, and the impact they have in communities they serve.
