CoastHills Credit Union names new CEO

Posted at 1:18 PM, Aug 16, 2018

The CoastHills Credit Union Board of Directors has named Paul Cook as the credit union’s new president/CEO.

Cook currently serves as the credit union’s executive vice president and chief experience officer. He’ll take over for interim CEO Dal Widick on Aug. 20, 2018.

CoastHills’ former CEO, Jeff York, is suing the credit union and its board of directors, claiming they retaliated against him for making complaints when they tried to base his annual bonus on a weight loss goal. He was placed on leave in March and later fired. York is seeking more than $15 million in damages.
