The Kansas Senate formally confirmed Julie Murray as the new administrator of the Kansas Department of Credit Unions (KDCU) on April 27. The Senate voted 39-1 to approve Murray to serve the remainder of the current four-year term, which runs until December 31, 2025. The KDCU regulates all state-chartered credit unions operating in Kansas.

Murray has more than 18 years of financial institution management experience, including three years as a financial examiner with KDCU. Prior to that, she worked 13 years as a branch manager and compliance specialist for Azura Credit Union. She also worked three years as banking center manager for Bank of America and as a customer service officer with Sunflower Bank.

Vickie Hurt, who has served as KDCU administrator since November 2020, will assist as a consultant during the transition.

Kansas Governor Laura Kelly announced the appointment of Kevin Wilmoth, president/CEO of Skyward Credit Union in Wichita, to the Kansas Credit Union Council. The Council acts as an advisory board to the KDCU administrator.
