Hiway’s President/CEO Dave Boden was recently named the 2022 Minnesota Credit Union Network Outstanding Credit Union Professional of the Year. Boden received the award at MnCUN’s recently held Annual Conference.

“I’m blessed and humbled to be a part of an industry that has so many good people that care about each other and the members that we serve,” said Boden. “This award says more about Hiway, the people that work here, our leadership and the members that we serve than it does about me. I am fortunate to be the one recognized but it’s all because I’ve had great people around me.”

Boden has been with Hiway for over 19 years, serving as the credit union’s President/CEO since 2013. Under Boden, Hiway has experienced significant growth in both assets and members. During his tenure, Boden has overseen many key projects, including the launch of the Hiway Foundation, branch network expansion, rebranding and several critical technology initiatives. He’s also played a leading role in developing and supporting Hiway’s award-winning DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) Committee, HYPE (Hiway’s Young Professionals) and Hiway GPS (Hiway’s service standards).

Outside of Hiway, Boden is committed to volunteerism and improving both the credit union industry and Hiway’s home communities. He has been actively involved in the Minnesota Credit Union Network since joining Hiway, including a leadership role on the MnCUN Board of Directors, as well as serving previously as chair of the network’s Political Involvement Committee.

Boden has long been a champion of community-based programming and has led Hiway’s efforts in support of Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare through employee giving and Hiway’s creation of the award-winning Hockey Kids4Kids program. Boden is also active in several military causes and serves as chair of St. Paul’s Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Steering Committee.
