David Turner, a financial services and consulting veteran, has been named Chief Information Officer of Arlington-based Texas Trust Credit Union.
Turner will succeed the retiring Ron Dinwiddie in the executive vice president and CIO position, managing the information technology, core systems, cybersecurity, and program management teams, Texas Trust said in a news release.
Turner, currently the senior vice president of Information Technology and Portfolio Management, joined Texas Trust in 2012 to manage large projects for the credit union. Since his arrival, the organization has successfully completed 120 enterprise-wide projects, including three mergers.
Before joining Texas Trust, Turner was with Transamerica’s Clark Consulting division, and also led teams at companies such as Ceridian, Pricewaterhouse Coopers’ Cartesis division, and UICIA.
Turner has a degree in finance from the University of Texas at Arlington and an MBA from UT Dallas.
Dinwiddie, who was with Texas Trust for five years, was originally brought on board to overhaul the credit union’s technology infrastructure and build an IT team that would help fulfill Texas Trust’s goal of becoming a $1 billion organization. He and Turner worked closely to virtualize the entire network and create a single data center, replace an aging phone system, and improve network speed and reliability, the news release said.
“David and Ron worked closely together to build a team and network infrastructure that enabled us to grow aggressively these last few years,” Jim Minge, president and CEO of Texas Trust, said in the announcement. “We are extremely grateful for Ron’s leadership and professional contribution that helped us achieve our financial and membership goals. We are confident that David will continue to build on this foundation and deliver the tech-enabled solutions our members expect.”
Texas Trust Credit Union was created in 1936 when a group of Chance Vought Aircraft Corporation employees pooled their savings so they could help each other achieve financial goals. Today, Texas Trust serves more than 117,000 members.
Texas Trust Credit Union supports local students through its “Spirit Debit Rewards” program. With every eligible swipe of an SDR card, funds are donated to the school or district of the member’s choosing. To date, Texas Trust has donated more than $1.8 million since August 2011.
