Special Guests

Dan Stoltz, President/CEO SPIRE Credit Union

Dan Stoltz is the President and Chief Executive Officer of SPIRE Credit Union, which has seventeen branches, more than 96,000 customers/members and holds assets of more than $980 million.

His personal philosophy that “life is about giving, not getting” is very evident in Stoltz’s leadership of SPIRE. As a culmination of all his work, he was honored with the respected 2016 Spurgeon Leadership Award from the Boy Scouts of America for giveback to our communities.  And most recently, DECA awarded their highest honor to Stoltz as he was named 2017 Executive of the Year for leadership development in area high schools.

One may also recognize Stoltz as King Boreas 79 of the 2015 St. Paul Winter Carnival. In addition, he served as the 2016-2017 Minneapolis Aquatennial Commodore. Stoltz is the first person ever to serve as head of the Winter Carnival and Aquatennial in back-to-back years making over 700 appearances.  

Stoltz currently volunteers on the boards of Presbyterian Homes, Cooperative Foundation, Keep On Pushing Foundation, Bid Committee for the 2023 Minnesota World Fair Expo, Minnesota Credit Union Network, Ordway, and is the Board Chair of the University of Northwestern-St. Paul. 

Stoltz defines a truly successful leader simply as a person who is a go-getter and go-giver.
