One of my favorite interviews of the year always occurs in January when the annual GonzoBanker Awards are announced. (The awards are actually announced in December, but we never get to the interview until January after the holidays.)
As usual, the 2018 GonzoBanker Awards is a stellar collection of both credit union and banking accolades: some fun, some serious, but all well deserved. Listed below are the ones, from the many, we discussed with Cornerstone Advisors Partner/President and one of the original GonzoBankers Steve Williams:
“Lifetime Credit Union Career Achievement Award”
Greg Smith, retiring CEO of PSECU
“The I’m Serious About Digital Transformation Award"
Elevations Credit Union CEO Gerry Agnes
“The Inclusion Award for Best Performance Serving Hispanic Households”
Idaho Central Credit Union
“Enron Smartest Guys in the Room Award”
“Chip & Joanna Gaines Award”
Zillow’s acquisition of Mortgage Lenders of America
“Five Numbers That Should Scare Traditional Bankers”
Check it out and let us know your thoughts.
