One of our favorite recurring guests is USC Credit Union President/CEO Gary Perez and his ability to see things from a different angle. Gary joins us in the Studio Lounge to discuss his conference keynote presentation on "Challenges for the Next Credit Union CEOs." One of his biggest points was saying that your next group of credit union leaders will be coming from the IT and Marketing departments -- not COOs or CFOs any longer. In addition, he sees credit unions' regulation deluge a positive, keeping today's disruptors out of financial services.
We discussed much, much more such as Sofi, which has positioned itself to look like a credit union, funding $15 billion in loans in five years; creating a separate mobile department within your CU; and how today's tech is driving lending at USC Credit Union. Check it out and let us know your thoughts.
