I had the honor of taking long-time EverythingCU.com site member Walt Everhardt out to lunch today in Albany NY. We went to a cute little Italian Place called Pizza Mare’s. Walt has First New York Credit Union growing very well with their new community charter. Originally First Teachers Credit Union, they now have $180 million in assets, 26,000 members, and 6 branches in the capital city district. That’s terrific in a market which is also home to Capital Communications FCU ($1 million marketing budget), Sunmark FCU (47,000 members) and State Employees FCU ($1.3 billion assets). Walt’s campaigns, with the help of Karen Ryan’s designs are routinely generating 300% ROA.
Walt is rockin in Albany!
