The credit union industry is seeing a mass exodus of CEOs like never before. This widespread retirement is a double-edged sword for CUs, as experienced executives leave to start new chapters of their lives and new blood comes in to introduce new ideas to keep the industry relevant. But finding this new blood is a challenge for most credit union boards looking to make the right hire to ensure another couple of decades of quality leadership.
So we invited DDJ Myers Vice President Peter Myers on the show to provide some proven advice and specific steps for credit unions on how to strategically approach their looming CEO searches -- all based on a recent article entitled: "How to Approach the CEO Search." We address such issues as the possible dearth of exec talent, pros and cons of hiring outside the industry, the definition of a sustainable leader, and much more. Enjoy!
