PULSE EFT Association, the nation’s leading financial industry-owned electronic funds transfer network, has named five new members to its Board of Directors. Elected to serve are:
— Barry L. Boerstler, Executive Vice President Fifth Third Bank, Cincinnati, Ohio
— Raymond Halackna, Vice President Mellon Bank, N.A., Pittsburgh, Pa.
— Joanne Middendorf, Vice President Huntington National Bank, Columbus, Ohio
— Jeffrey Morrow, Executive Vice President Dollar Bank, Pittsburgh, Pa.
— Robin P. Nenninger, Executive Vice President U.S. Bank, Cincinnati, Ohio
All were former board members of the Cincinnati-based Money Station network, which merged with PULSE earlier this year. In addition to their responsibilities as board members, Boerstler and Morrow will serve on the PULSE Executive Committee.
PULSE President and CEO Stan Paur noted the depth of experience represented by the new board members. “With their knowledge of EFT networks and the needs of the financial industry, these individuals will complement and strengthen the PULSE Board,” he said. “They will be valuable resources as we continue to carry out an aggressive growth program throughout PULSE’s expanded service area.” The addition of 12 primary states served by Money Station — Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia and Wisconsin — has more than doubled PULSE’s geographic footprint. PULSE links an estimated 60 million cardholders with more than 76,500 ATMs and 300,000 point-of-sale merchant locations throughout the United States. PULSE is a financial industry-owned, not-for-profit shared electronic funds transfer network. Its members include more than 2,500 banks, credit unions and savings and loans in a 22-state primary service area blanketing the central, south, midwest and southwest regions of the United States. PULSE has become well known in recent years as a recognized resource for consumer research related to EFT services, and an effective national public policy voice on issues of importance to the financial industry.
