Credit union staff were right by us (including DFCU Financial CEO Mark Shobe) deflecting our message and trying to give their side of the story. It was kind of funny because some members were asking the employees of the credit union where they could sign the petition!" - Eric Gupka, a signature gatherer for the DFCU Owners United Group on the group's petitioning to overturn the board. "The issues aren't very similar. The only similarity between the two cases is the banks are attacking credit unions." -Mike Wishnow, senior vice president communications & marketing on the differences between the field-of-membership case in Pennsylvania decided in favor of CUs by the Commonwealth Court and the case in Missouri where the Cole County Circuit Court judge rule in banks' favor. "They never thought of credit unions in that way." -
Olan Jones, CEO of $1.5 billion Eastman Credit Union on the reaction he received following a presentation to a group of college professors, deans and presidents on how credit unions have impacted the financial services industry.
