#1126: Truliant's Retiring CEO Marc Schaefer Talks Career Highlights Such as HR 1151, CU's Growth, and Much More (pt.1)...
You all are in for a treat in this two-part interview with retiring Truliant Federal Credit Union President/CEO Marc Schaefer. Marc recently announced his retirement, occurring at the end of 2019, after 25 years serving as Truliant's leader.
In part one, we discussed the incredible growth the credit union experienced under Marc's watch (from $400 million/110,000 members to $2.5 billion/248,000 members), becoming North Carolina's third largest credit union with 33 branches to boot. He also discussed the credit union's rebranding efforts from AT&T Family Federal Credit Union to Truliant.
Lastly, Marc recollected his part in the HR 1151 (Credit Union Membership Access Act) decision back in 1998, which had most of the industry very nervous to say the least. Obviously, it turned out well for credit unions and Marc was a big part of that.
An amazing chat with an amazing human being who has devoted the better part of his life to credit unions. Our industry is that much better for it. So check it out and let us know your thoughts -- and part two is even better. So stay tuned!

I started as the sole marketing person at SunState FCU in 1992 and am still running the marketing department here. I too was in the middle of HR1151 here, and remember it. Really enjoyed the interview.
