“Collaboration is how we are going to win in the future.” - Becky Reed
Thank you for tuning in to episode 157 of The CUInsight Experience podcast with your host, Randy Smith, co-founder of CUInsight.com. This episode is brought to you by CUES. CUES is the leading talent development solutions provider in the credit union industry. After listening to our show, learn more and register for CEO Dialogue. This new CUES event is an opportunity to join your fellow CEOs from credit unions across North America in an open discussion format tackling the industry’s most pressing issues.
My guest on today's show is Becky Reed, CEO at Lone Star Credit Union and Board Chair of NACUSO. Becky shares her journey and how she started her career in credit unions over 25 years ago. She chats about her experience growing in the credit union movement including advice, knowledge, and inspiration for the future. Becky’s leadership at Lone Star has led the team to implement technology that provides a personalized member experience with a small-town feel. In her role as board chair, Becky also guides NACUSO in its mission to help credit unions explore the use of CUSOs to stay in touch with the future of finance.
During our conversation, Becky and I chat about relevancy and how credit unions can appeal to all generations by sharing our mission. We discuss the balance of collaboration and decentralized finance (DeFi) as it relates to relevancy. Becky talks about the uprising of society losing trust in and questioning their relationship with traditional financial institutions. She explains how credit unions are well positioned to be a trusted partner that gives people their power back. Becky shares ways that CUSOs benefit credit unions, other CUSOs, and the movement as a whole through collaboration. Listen as we discuss how the credit union industry can empower each other to better serve the public.
As we wrap up the show, listen in as Becky talks about what she’s doing to keep up with market trends, why she considers Condoleezza Rice successful, and which books she recommends. Enjoy my conversation with Becky Reed!
