Paul Gentile, president/CEO of the New Jersey Credit Union League, did his part Tuesday to help spread the word about credit union member business lending and putting Americans back to work.
New York radio stations 77 WABC and 95.5 WPLJ, along with Geraldo Rivera, hosted the Putting America Back to Work Career Fair at the Javits Center in New York City.
In an effort to take action and help local communities get back to work, Rivera, host of “Geraldo” on 77 WABC, broadcast live from the center.
Gentile was part of Rivera’s on-air panel, along with Michael J. Lindell, inventor of My Pillow; Barry Sloane, CEO of Newel; and Mike Murphy, senior vice president of operations at Quick Check. They focused on how businesses can create more jobs.
NJCUL representatives also manned a booth at the event to talk about such things as the benefits of raising the member business lending cap for credit unions and the effect that would have on job creation.
