It's always an honor and pleasure having GTE Financial's President/CEO Joe Brancucci on the show -- especially when he shares any of his business insights. Joe did just that and more during his visit with us, discussing his credit union's recent CUNA Lending Council Award win in the "Low-to-Modest Means" category.
Joe humbly explained how GTE Financial plans to turn two $1 million CDFI grants into $330 million in loans to more than 40,000 members, $125 million in small business loans, and first credit cards to 25,000 members all in five years. He revealed his latest numbers during our chat -- and he's well on his way to exceeding those goals.
But those are just numbers, as impressive as they are. Joe went way deeper, sharing exactly what these funds will do for his members, their community's, and essentially the local economy. It's "who we are" he consistently repeated throughout the discussion, passionately committed to providing GTE Financial's members with the means to better their lives.
Enjoy this conversation with one of our industry's more proactive and valued leaders.
