The Infirmary board of directors, working in conjunction with HRx, an executive recruiting solution from LEVERAGE, identified a great pool of candidates. McKinley’s track record as a successful manager led The Infirmary to quickly hire him as CEO. “Keith’s background in the financial services industry, especially his lending expertise, really stood out to the board,” said The Infirmary Chairman of the Board Larry Stapleton. “HRx screened the candidates and only brought the ones to us that really fit our needs. With so much regulatory and economic pressure, we needed to find a CEO that will serve our membership and keep our credit union growing in the community.” McKinley graduated from Auburn University with a degree in XXX. He begins May 2 at The Infirmary.
