Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014 (FARMERS BRANCH, Texas) – Nate Webb has been tapped to serve as president of the Oklahoma Credit Union Association – a subsidiary of the Cornerstone Credit Union League. Webb is replacing Gary Jones, who is retiring effective March 31.
Cornerstone CEO Dick Ensweiler says Nate is a welcome addition to the organization.
“Nate has played an instrumental role in communicating the credit union difference with elected officials in both Oklahoma and Washington for the past three years. He knows credit unions,” notes Ensweiler. “As a partner with Capitol Gains, LLC, a lobbying firm in Oklahoma City that has represented the league for many years, Nate has been retained by the league to represent credit unions before legislators and regulators.”
From January 2007 to February 2011, Webb was chief of staff in the office of then Congresswoman [and now Governor] Mary Fallin. From October 2003 to December 2006, he served as chief of staff when Fallin was Lieutenant Governor. It is interesting to note that Congressman Steve Largent tapped Webb as his communication director when Largent was a candidate for governor in 2002.
Webb graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma majoring in journalism and political science. Also, from June 1975 to August 1979, he served in the United States Navy.
“We appreciate the dedication and leadership of Gary and wish him well in retirement,” added Ensweiler. “And while Nate has big shoes to fill, I’m confident that he will rise to the occasion.”
