GreenState Credit Union Hires Vice President of Low- and Moderate-Income Community Development

GreenState Credit Union announced it has hired Zach Wahls as Vice President of Low- and Moderate-Income (LMI) Community Development. In this new role for GreenState, Wahls will lead new initiatives to expand the credit union’s service of its LMI members amid growing economic uncertainty. His hiring is unrelated to the COVID-19 outbreak, but GreenState expects his work will benefit Iowans being impacted by the pandemic’s resulting economic turmoil.

Jeff Disterhoft, GreenState CEO, said: “We’re excited to have Zach join the GreenState family in this new role. For decades, we have been dedicated to serving our community, and we hope Zach’s work will take that to the next level. Zach has led a winning national advocacy campaign, and as an Iowa state senator, he possesses a deep understanding of the economic and policy dynamics affecting Iowans. We are glad someone with his policy, advocacy, and community background is joining our organization to lead the expansion of this work.”

Wahls said: “I’m excited to be starting this new position with GreenState and look forward to strengthening our service of our state’s economically vulnerable families, especially in this time of crisis. I’ve been a member of this credit union for nearly twenty years and going to work for the Iowans who need our help the most is an incredible opportunity.”

Wahls is an Iowa State Senator from Coralville, and he previously had worked as a consultant with GreenState to conduct research on the growing economic pressure facing Iowa’s LMI households. He received his Bachelors from the University of Iowa and Masters from Princeton University. His Masters research included work on the intersection of poverty and public policy and how the design of financial products can impact LMI households.
