When our Senior Management Team was in a slump, I hired John to come in and share his insights about our operations, behaviors and attitudes.This exercise with John revitalized the team and created a greater sense of accountability among the senior managers.John lit a fire under all of us to refocus on the key issues facing our credit union.
Shortly thereafter, we lost our long time consultant to whom we outsourced the annual budget forecasting and scenario planning model.John stepped in on short notice and created a model from scratch in just a few days.We were able to deliver a reasonable budget presentation to our Board from which they were able to confidently set our scorecard metrics for the year. Maureen G. Tebo, President/CEO, Nations Heritage FCU, Attleboro, MA
I’ve been fortunate enough to work with John to develop marketing strategies to update and strengthen the credit union’s brand identity and positioning.I have worked with CEO’s and boards of directors at credit unions in 32 states.It is very rare to find a leader who understands how to fully use outside resources and to integrate their advice and programs back into the organization in a way that delivers significant results in growth and profitability.

John is both a strategic thinker and communicator, and one of his strengths is his ability to work with boards to set a challenging and exciting vision for the credit union…His leadership style is personal, friendly, and highly communicative, but also proactively demanding of his management staff in the way a good coach is demanding…When the credit union needs a team to be rebuilt or new members engaged, you will find John in the midst of the team, leading by example, and serving as chief cheerleader… I have found John's technical financial skills to be absolutely superior, and his intuitive understanding of the financial nuances and tidal surges in the credit union business are typically only found in the best CEOs above $½ billion in assets.
