Is This the Career For You?

As a well-rounded financial services executive, you will continue to build strategies around products, services, and programs that create success, often finding yourself on the leading edge of offering new technology solutions, especially through partnering with FinTechs or CUSOs. Your passion for building people will help you develop your team and improve members’ lives, all while shaping and growing the future of the credit union in close partnership with an involved Board of Directors.
You will be prepared for this role if your communication style has created a reputation that you are trustworthy, collaborative, and always about the people. You should have a track record that demonstrates how your collaborative and visionary style gets successful results for the financial institutions and programs you have led and in the growth of the people you have recruited, developed, and retained.
