Under the stewardship of its new president and CEO, James Schenck, PenFed (Pentagon Federal Credit Union) commemorated its 79th Annual Meeting on May 20. It was announced by PenFed officials that Edward B. Cody, former DISA comptroller, was selected by PenFed’s Board of Directors to represent the $17 billion credit union as its next chairman of the board.

"It is an honor and a pleasure to share this news about Ed's selection," said Schenck. "Ed already has built a long, successful working relationship with PenFed. His selfless and dedicated service to PenFed is truly outstanding.” Cody enjoys over 32 years of experience with PenFed. He first worked with the Supervisory Committee, and then later served as a member of the board. Cody’s time as PenFed’s treasurer aided the board with oversight responsibility, planning, and employee benefits. He later became a member of the credit union’s Nominating Committee.

In addition to Cody’s service with PenFed, he is the owner of Enterprise Business Consulting; a service disabled, veteran-owned small business. Previously, he served as the chief financial executive and comptroller at the Defense Information Systems Agency. Cody boasts over 35 years of federal service, including 2 years of active duty service as an Army lieutenant. He is a Vietnam veteran.

Cody will succeed retired Army Colonel James Quinn, after more than 12 years of service as PenFed’s current chairman and 19 years on PenFed’s board of directors. Colonel (Ret.) Quinn will remain as one of PenFed’s thirteen directors.

“James Quinn's military and professional careers, along with his volunteer service on the board with the credit union, have been prolific in nature and outstanding in principal,” noted Cody.

Quinn has served as PenFed’s board chairman since 2002. During that time, Quinn demonstrated exceptional leadership qualities that have been key elements in the ongoing success of the credit union. The leadership role that Quinn assumed, as board chairman, was instrumental in keeping PenFed focused on its enduring commitment to continually create innovative products and services that further the financial well-being of its members.
