The CEO of the Com­mu­nity Credit Union of Cum­ber­land and Colch­ester was re­cently rec­og­nized as one of At­lantic Canada’s best CEOs by At­lantic Busi­ness Mag­a­zine.

Dar­rell Kuhn was hon­oured as one of the top 50 CEOs at an awards gala in St. John’s, N.L.

“It is im­per­a­tive to treat ev­ery­one fairly and with re­spect, like col­leagues, rather than sub­or­di­nates,” Kuhn said in a news re­lease. “I have cre­ated a sup­port­ive and col­lab­o­ra­tive ap­proach with my em­ploy­ees that in­cludes in­volve­ment all key de­ci­sions. By treat­ing them like own­ers, ev­ery­one suc­ceeds.”

Since 1999, At­lantic Busi­ness Mag­a­zine has ded­i­cated one of its six is­sues per year to pro­fil­ing At­lantic Canada’s most ac­com­plished busi­ness lead­ers.

The in­ten­tion is to give a wor­thy in­di­vid­ual the recog­ni­tion he/she de­serves as well as to use their ex­am­ple to in­spire other com­pa­nies and busi­ness lead­ers to achieve sim­i­lar suc­cess.

Nom­i­na­tions are sub­mit­ted by our read­ers and nom­i­nees are judged ac­cord­ing to their cor­po­rate, com­mu­nity and in­dus­try in­volve­ment; their com­pany’s growth in re­cent years; and, their re­sponses to var­i­ous man­age­rial chal­lenges.

Kuhn as­sumed his role as pres­i­dent and CEO of Com­mu­nity Credit Union in 2007.

Un­der his lead­er­ship, Com­mu­nity Credit Union has seen a 31 per cent rev­enue growth over the past three years.

Kuhn strongly be­lieves that it is im­per­a­tive that or­ga­ni­za­tions not only ex­ist for their cus­tomers and em­ploy­ees, but also to cre­ate bet­ter com­mu­ni­ties.

In­vest­ments by Com­mu­nity Credit Union in projects in Colch­ester and Cum­ber­land in­clude the Com­mu­nity Credit Union Busi­ness In­no­va­tion Cen­tre in Amherst and the Rath Eastlink Cen­tre in Truro.

“Dar­rell was an ex­cel­lent match for Com­mu­nity Credit Union bring­ing a cul­ture of change and in­no­va­tion needed for our long term sur­vival,” Com­mu­nity Credit Union board chair­man Howard Welsh said.
