John Myers, President and Principal, C. Myers
CECL: A Board’s Eye View
John Myers is one of four c. myers owners. One of his greatest passions is helping credit unions build and sustain business models that are relevant to their target markets. He brings years of experience in strategic planning and asset/liability management to the financial services industry. He uses his reservoir of experiences, observations, and learnings as he works with credit unions to help them evolve their business model to remain relevant for years to come.
Myers is known for presenting complex topics to decision-makers in a way that is understandable, thought-provoking, and engaging. This is critically important to him because the first time he heard someone speak about asset/liability management, he almost fell asleep standing up. Keeping that in mind, he has developed a knack for helping credit union decision-makers want to be involved in discussions about strategy and asset/liability management.
Myers has been a featured speaker at many national and regional conferences, such as the CUNA CFO and CUNA OpSS conferences, as well as the National Directors Conference. He has also instructed countless asset/liability management education classes.
He and his family are adventure travelers and have hiked or explored all seven continents and the Arctic Circle in recent years. While at home, John enjoys hiking, running, strength training, yoga, and making a mess in the kitchen as he cooks and grills.
Tim Busby, Vice President, C. Myers
CECL: A Board’s Eye View
Tim Busby has helped hundreds of credit unions of all sizes focus on building financial strength and sustainability through a variety of economic conditions, including two recessions, a housing bubble, and multiple different rate environments.
Busby’s knowledge and experience runs deep in a variety of disciplines, including A/LM and facilitating process improvement and project management sessions. He also has expertise in more specialized areas, such as liquidity analysis, capital restoration plans, and conducting A/LM model validations and merger analyses.
He has been instrumental in the development, enhancement, and teaching of A/LM education courses. Busby receives stellar reviews because he strives to be first to understand shifts in the economy, emerging balance sheet trends within the industry, and proposed changes to regulations. He has a striking ability to engage participants and communicate complex topics, as he couples the material with his dry sense of humor, which is one of his trademarks.
Busby enjoys spending time with his two teenage children. He is often found on the sidelines of a soccer field cheering for his son’s team or at horse shows supporting his daughter. In his downtime, he enjoys reading science fiction.
