Board of Directors

One of the greatest assets CU*Answers has to offer is that our structure mirrors that of credit unions: the people who lead the CUSO are the same people who own it and participate in it as partners. Our Board of Directors consists of a diverse group of seven dedicated credit union CEOs that provide focused leadership, as each member has a vested interest in the success of CU*Answers clients.

Our CUSO model sets us apart by creating equity through ownership and maintaining higher levels of cooperation and trust that you won’t find in other vendor models. Directors are challenged to wear many hats and focus on addressing issues regarding users, strategy, and development. This format taps the many talents and leadership skills of our directors and adds value for every CU*Answers client.
