Catalyst CEO Garner Strives for Efficiency and High-Touch Service
First there were 25 candidates for the CEO job at Plano, Texas-based Catalyst Corporate. That got whittled down to around eight people who were asked to assemble a strategic plan. Three or four then did in-person interviews with a committee of the board. And finally the winner was announced in late February.
Kathy Garner, who had served as executive vice president of member relations and business development for Catalyst Corporate, is the new CEO.
Garner’s goal is to sign up “250 to 300 members out of Western Bridge. That is our plan. Of course we would love to have 600.”
She stressed that “we are getting commitments from large credit unions in California and the west and we know more are coming to decisions in March.”
