Ok, I'm throwing all journalistic objectivity out the window. I'm a big fan of NASCUS President/CEO Lucy Ito. Come to think of it, who isn't?
So when Lucy recently announced her retirement at the conclusion of 2021, it was a bit shocking. Her calm yet confident leadership, endless contributions to credit unions, and insightful thoughts on industry trends and issues are all highly sought after in today's fast-paced environment. She always seems to be this even keel in today's chaotic waters.
We invited Lucy to come on the show and share what sparked this announcement, as well as what attracted her to credit unions in the first place -- spending time at WOCCU and California/Nevada Credit Union Leagues prior to her position at NASCUS.
Lucy discussed career highlights and achievements, mentors who helped in her career journey, her take on the current state of the industry (she has her concerns), and what she will miss the most once January 1, 2022, arrives.
A wonderful conversation with one the credit union industry's most cherished leaders. Check it out and let us know your thoughts. And be sure to watch the entire episode with Lucy below for all the details.
