I am running for the NACUSO Board of Directors, and I am asking for your vote.

Over the past 18 years, I have had the pleasure of being involved with NACUSO in various capacities.  For 11 years I was the CEO of CU Wireless, a wholly-owned CUSO of Maps Credit Union.  CU Wireless develops software that makes business easier for hundreds of credit unions nationwide, including products such as Sprig, LiveSurvey and Remote Deposit Capture.  Today, I am the Chief Experience Officer at Maps Credit Union, carrying forward my leadership in fin-tech CUSOs to assist in the development of competitive digital strategies within the Credit Union.  I continue to serve on the Board of CU Wireless and am an advisor to the Maps family of subsidiary CUSOs serving the Credit Union industry.  

Not only have I been a frequent participant in NACUSO activities, but I have also had the pleasure of being asked to be the host of NACUSO’s Fintech Roundtable held each year at the NACUSO Annual Conference.  Whether I was running the CUSO or working at the credit union, I have always been a strong believer in the CUSO business model. It has meant so much to me personally and has been a key building block in the success of Maps CU as well. 

I am running to join the board because I believe that I can contribute to the discussion and help further the mission of NACUSO.  These elections sometimes come down to just a few ballots! This means literally every vote matters so if you haven’t submitted your ballot yet, please do so, and consider voting for me. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out directly. Otherwise, I hope to see you in Vegas next month!

I am excited about this opportunity to serve credit unions and CUSOs alike, and your support would mean a lot to me.
