As a current Board of Director’s (BOD) member and a volunteer veteran of the OASFCU, I have leveraged my IT background to help our credit union transform its technology stack. From upgrading our core and home banking system with a state-of-the-art platform to implementing digital and mobile solutions, our credit union has lived to its promise to bring the latest fintech to improve our members experience. But my journey is far from over. The next phase is to ensure that our internal processes align with our transformation roadmap while ensuring our personnel is equipped and trained to adjust to a new reality of a global and highly engaged member-centric credit union while still providing a personalized and high-touch service excellence.
