GTE Financial President/CEO Brian Best was kind enough to come on the show and share his credit union's experience "weathering" Hurricane Irma, which bore the brunt of the mega-storm head on. Brian explained how his credit union prepared for the hurricane well in advance of its arrival in the Orlando area. He also described how they planned for such an event the year before -- and how those plans were instrumental in its success not only getting staff to safety but serving their members in a very difficult time, as well.
Suffice to say, best laid plans do, indeed, work when executed properly -- and that's what GTE Financial did so well. But Brian added what they learned from this event and what they can continue to do better for their credit union and its members. Unfortunately, this won't be the last hurricane to pass through Florida and wreak havoc on the state.
Check out this amazing story from Brian and let us know your thoughts.
