PUBLISHERS POV : BY TIM O’HARA
Almost nothing makes me happier than receiving compliments about “Credit Union BUSINESS” magazine. Although mostly regarding the “no- nonsense” editorial content, these compliments can also range from the “easy-to-read” design or the fact that the new all-digital formats read equally well on a large-screen computer as they do on the smallest “smart” phone. But most of the praise comes from the excellent quality of our editorial contributors, each of them experts in their fields.
CUB editorial content is not for Sissies!
Our recurring monthly columns are provided to help credit union executive leaders. And you really appreciate that help, no matter what department you happen to work in – and in most cases direct.
Starting at the top of the C-Level, my friend Scott McClymonds offers up an excellent CEO Velocity interview each month. This section features in-depth interviews with big league Chief Executive Officers like James Schenk, CEO of PenFed Credit Union and Donna Bland, CEO of California’ Golden 1 CU. On page 20 of this issue, read how Security First FCU’s CEO Jim Laffoon developed six leadership attributes for CU growth, profit and meaning. (Editor’s Note: Later this year, we’ll publish a special issue featuring Scott’s excellent Q&A sessions with each of these strong credit union leaders.)
