Texas Trust Credit Union names Ron Dinwiddie its CIO
U.S. Navy Technology Veteran Has Led IT Activities at Banks, Credit Unions
MANSFIELD, TX (November 12, 2013) — Ron Dinwiddie, whose information technology career spans four decades, has been named Chief Information Officer at Texas Trust Credit Union, one of the largest credit unions in North Texas.
Dinwiddie is responsible for all the IT operations of Texas Trust, as well as for its Trust Data Systems subsidiary. In his new role, he establishes strategy for and oversees all of Texas Trust’s compliance, data security, and IT operations.
Following 22 years of service in the U.S. Navy, where he was a Data Processing Master Chief and Command Master Chief, Dinwiddie held executive positions in banks and credit unions, most recently as Senior Vice President of IT with Houston Federal Credit Union.
He previously worked with Statewide Bank and Midwest Independent Bank, an institution that served more than 450 community banks in three states. He started his post-Navy career at Lucent Technologies, followed by Sprint and Temple-Inland Forest Products, before moving into the banking industry.
“Because of our recent merger with Security One Federal Credit Union, the scale and scope of our information technology activities has increased significantly,” said Jim Minge, President of Texas Trust Credit Union. “We are fortunate that Ron Dinwiddie, with his extensive technology experience in large organizations, has joined us at this pivotal period in our growth.”
Texas Trust is the largest credit union home mortgage lender in North Texas, and one of the largest credit unions overall in the region. Its merger with Security One Federal Credit Union, which added two more branches to its network, was completed November 1.
