CEO awards


Innovation must play in integral role in daily community operations. From the creation of a wealth management purchase strategy to establishing a ‘Women in Excellence’ entrepreneurial sponsorship fund, the President & CEO of Community Credit Union of Colchester Cumberland Ltd is relentless in building economic capacity in the neighborhoods and backyards of his business.
A legion of friends and colleagues will attest to his passion, but a more independent appraisal of his significant skills and vision came May 12th, when he was named one of the TOP 50 CEO’s in Atlantic Canada by Atlantic Business Magazine for the second consecutive year.

The influential magazine recognized Kuhn stating: “since 2008, he has managed to maintain a type of progressive leadership that has produced tangible results in western Nova Scotia. Kuhn’s five-year plan is every bit as ambitious as the man, himself, with the past three years seeing unprecedented growth levels for the Credit Union’.
“I am overwhelmed by this recognition again,” said Kuhn. “As the leader of Community Credit Union, I am highly passionate about our Members, our community and our staff, but I do not do the heavy lifting alone. My team continuously demonstrates an unparalleled passion for our Members and our communities.”

“Darrell leads one of the most progressive and fastest growing credit unions in the province,” said Dianne Kelderman, President & CEO of the Nova Scotia Co-operative Council, and a five-time recipient of the magazine’s award. “He is committed to local innovation and aligning credit union services to community values.”

One example includes the Community Credit Union’s leadership role in the Rath Eastlink Community Center. With a $750,000 commitment to the Community Credit Union Arena the credit union is the project’s second largest overall sponsor. In addition it is recognized as the largest local community sponsor with over $100,000 committed annually to local volunteer organizations.
“We continue to be recognized as the financial institution for the people and for the community and this is exactly what and who we are”, said Kuhn.

The TOP 50 CEO Award is presented annually to Atlantic-based CEO’s, who have demonstrated a high level of leadership innovation, growth, and community development.
Community Credit Union of Cumberland Colchester Limited provides a full range of modern, quality financial services tailored to the diverse and ever-changing needs of its members and community.
