For industry achievement

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Dick Nesvold, SouthPoint Financial Credit Union President and CEO, was inducted in the Credit Union House Hall of Leaders in Washington, D.C., on Feb. 25.

The Credit Union House is a permanent credit union presence in the nation’s capital. The Hall of Leaders recognizes those credit union board members, CEOs or volunteers that inspire others in the credit union movement. The names of these inductees serve as a reminder to all that visit the Credit Union House of the individuals that have volunteered their time and who remain committed to the cooperative credit union principles.

Nesvold is a committed, dedicated industry advocate. In 2012, the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) inducted him into its International Executive Volunteer Corps (IEVC) for his work on the Central de Cooperativas del Area Nacional (Paraguay) initiative. He is a former Board Chair of the Minnesota Credit Union Network, was the Minnesota Credit Union Network Professional of the Year in 2012 and was recognized as a Credit Union Rock Star by Credit Union Magazine in 2013. Nesvold currently represents Minnesota credit unions as a member of the Cooperative Network Board of Directors as well as the Minnesota Cooperative Education Foundation Board.
