Brian Prunty, Director
Asset Group D: More than $500 million in assets
CEO of CoVantage Credit Union
Brian has seen his credit union grow from $67 million in assets with 36 employees to having almost $1 billion in assets and 254 employees across its 11 offices.
Brian says credit unions must tap sustainable technologies in order to improve service. This, he says, is also essential to maximize productivity and thrive in an environment of ever-tightening margins. He urges all credit unions to participate in the comment process as new rules and regs take shape, and to fully digest resources like the ii releases provided by the League's Legal Affairs staff to achieve compliance.
Tim Tranberg, Director
Asset Group C $100 million to $500 million in assets
EVP of Co-op Credit Union
As EVP of Co-op Credit Union, Tim has 26 years of experience making personal loans, mortgage loans and business loans. But he still spends much of his time directly serving members.
He says that while compliance obligations have grown more complex for credit unions these last few years, the job of managing compliance shouldn't just fall to one person. Rather, it's everybody's business at the credit union. And credit unions should take advantage of the wealth of opportunities The League provides for compliance assistance.
