CU Evolution: Helping Small Credit Unions Think Big by Howard Bufe, President of CU Evolution

The financial services world, especially when it comes to the lender-borrower relationship, is undergoing intense disruption. Status quo leadership and lending will not work for most small credit unions. The time to evolve is now, and that is precisely why we have founded our new CUSO, CU Evolution

This month, we officially opened CU Evolution’s doors for business. The CUSO gives small credit unions (under $100mm) the strategies and tools to provide exceptional member and employee experiences in a rapidly evolving world.

My colleague, Deke Alexander, CEO of CU Evolution, summed up our mission best when he said, “Great leaders and great lenders – those are the credit union people who will transform the movement. CU Evolution’s hands-on, fully customized programs are built to help today’s credit union leaders and lenders go next-level, and fast.”

Our team is focused on evolving a credit union’s strategic planning, lending, leadership and marketing capabilities. The programs we offer are fully customizable, allowing credit unions to choose the areas on which they want to focus. Those areas can be anything from board leadership, succession planning and culture development to logo design, branding guides and custom marketing campaigns. Services for credit unions in need of lending program consultation include strategic consultation and staff education.

New Waze for Collaborating

Earlier this month I was in Athens, Georgia teaching Marketing/Business Development and Innovation to the students of Southeast Regional CU Management School (SRCUS). After my last class I needed to get to the Atlanta Airport to catch the last flight out – which is always dicey and to make matters worse – a huge thunderstorm was rolling in. At lunch I mentioned that I was a bit nervous because Atlanta traffic can be unpredictable in the best of times. That’s when I heard about Waze.
