Gary was named CEO of Cornerstone Community Credit Union in January of 2008. Prior to that, Gary was a Board Member and Secretary of the Cornerstone Board in 2007. Most of Gary’s career prior to the credit union industry was in retail which included almost 14 years with Younkers Department Stores as Regional VP over the Iowa Stores and before that a long stint with Foley’s Department Stores in Houston, Texas in multiple Stores and Merchandising positions. It was only natural that he become a part of Cornerstone which was previously Younkers Credit Union.
As CEO, Key has been responsible for financial management, strategic planning, investments, human resources, marketing, and a new building remodel and expansion. Gary serves on several boards and committees including the Iowa Credit Union League, Community Business Lenders, and Advocacy Committee which travels to DC to meet with Iowa Legislators. Gary has always made member service a top priority and believes our members and staff deserve only the “best”.
