Badger Campus Credit Union, with $13 million in assets, is merging with Landmark Credit Union, pending regulatory approval and a vote by the Badger Campus members. Badger campus and Landmark Boards of Directors have already approved the merger.
Landmark CEO Ron Kase, who led Landmark Credit Union to a milestone in September 2012 reaching $2 billion in assets size, is retiring after 39 years with the credit union. When Kase joined Landmark, then named Chabelco Credit Union, as a manager in 1973, the credit union had just one location, $2 million in assets, four employees and just over 2,300 members. Today, Landmark has grown to 28 branches, over 500 employees and more than 200,00 in members.
