Mountain America Credit Union's EVP/COO Nathan Anderson brings a refreshing perspective to the credit union industry from his previous stints at Black & Decker, DeWalt, and Rubbermaid. Nathan's experiences working for those companies have helped develop his unique "AAA" philosophy today -- which certainly bodes well for Mountain America. For example, he explains what he means by saying, "in this industry you get to have your cake and eat it too." He also discusses why "sales" is a dirty word in the CU industry. And he talks about the one key to credit union survival -- among other compelling and timely topics. It's no wonder Nathan and his forward thinking won the latest CU Times latest Trailblazer 40 Below award. Well deserved, Nathan! Enjoy the show.
