The Credit Union Association of New York will be holding its first Economic Forum Nov. 1-2 in Albany, N.Y., at the Desmond Hotel & Conference Center. The event, which is open to attendees from multiple states, aims to provide credit union leaders with information on business strategy, economics and investing.
Mark Sievewright, president of Credit Union Solutions at Fiserv, will provide the keynote presentation, “Credit Unions–Staying Relevant, Becoming Prevalent: A Futuristic View of the Credit Union Industry and its Potential.”
Sievewright said he believes there’s a transformation underway in the U.S. financial services industry that will have a dramatic effect on how credit unions do business, how they develop a strategy for their futures and how they collaborate around products, services and information. During his presentation, Sievewright will highlight industry changes, their implications for credit union leaders and the strategies it will take to remain relevant and become prevalent, the New York league said.
With 30 years of financial services industry experience, Sievewright has held senior leadership roles at HSBC in London, MasterCard International in Brussels and
Payment Systems Inc., where he served as president/CEO. Between 1999 and 2004, he served as president/CEO at the TowerGroup, a technology research and advisory firm for the financial services industry.
