California credit union CEO fired

The CoastHills CU board unanimously terminates Jeff York following an internal investigation.

Jeff York was fired as president/CEO of CoastHills Credit Union on March 16, following an internal investigation into alleged “inappropriate management behavior.”

“Early this year, the CoastHills board of directors was informed by regulators of a complaint relating to alleged inappropriate management behavior at CoastHills,” Dal Widick, interim president/CEO of the $1 billion Lompoc, Calif.-based credit union, said Tuesday. “The board takes these matters very seriously, and immediately retained an independent workplace investigation firm to conduct an investigation into issues raised in the complaint. Mr. York was among a number of individuals interviewed during this investigation, and was well aware of the nature of the complaint.”

Based on the investigation’s finding, the board unanimously decided to terminate Jeff York’s employment, Widick said.
