Always enjoy having credit union industry reporters and editors on the show and Credit Union Management Magazine's Editor, Lisa Hochgraf, doesn't disappoint in this episode. Lisa knows the industry backward and forward and it was great getting her two cents. We chatted about credit union marketing, industry issues and solutions, and how CUES helps spread the word. Check it out!
Always a pleasure talking with Callahan & Associates Executive Vice President, Jay Johnson. Jay has a ton of credit union trend data packed in his brain, so it's good to chat with him once in a while to check the pulse of the industry and see what his predications are. In this episode, he breaks down the recently released Q3 '10 data and what it means for the industry. Unfortunately, Skype had a few glitches in this interview, so we had to do some editing -- for which we apologize. But Jay's content is so good, we had to run it. Enjoy! (Also, here's a link to the 2011 Credit Union Directory.)
In this episode of CUbroadcast, we talk with Syphr President Chris Langley (also a former credit union CEO) about his company's loan evaluation tool, RateMatch. We also touched on his other cost saving lending service SaveOnYourLoans.com. Consumers' credit scores are always a hot topic these days to keep the lending engine motoring. Chris provides some great insight. Check it out when you get a chance -- and share!
