Mr Treinen brings an experience of over 30 years in the co-operative financial sector, where he has focused on development and on-going business management. His work covered more than 20 countries throughout Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.
A certified public accountant and member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), Mr Treinen graduated magna cum laude from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with a business administration degree in accounting.
