Chesapeake, VA | December 2nd | For Immediate Release

Mr. David Krause recently announced his intent to step down from his position on the ABNB Board of Directors after more than nineteen years. The Board has unanimously voted to appoint Mr. Andrew Keeney to fill this position, effective December 1st, 2020.

Mr. David Krause

Following graduation from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1961, Krause began a 22½ year career as a Naval Flight Officer flying aircraft carriers in the Mediterranean Sea, and off the coast of Vietnam. While on active duty he obtained Master’s Degrees in Business Administration and Public Administration. He retired from the Navy as a Commander in 1983.

Following his military retirement, Krause became an insurance and investment advisor with Mass Mutual Life Insurance Company. He also purchased part interest in a pension administration company, where he was involved in marketing and administering profit sharing and 401(k) plans to small and medium size businesses, primarily in Virginia and North Carolina. He is now fully retired and has served on the ABNB FCU Supervisory Committee since February 2011, and was elected Chairman in 2014.

We congratulate and thank Mr. Krause for his dedication and service to ABNB Credit Union and our members. We wish him the best, and hope that he enjoys his well-deserved retirement with his wife, four children, and six grandchildren.
