“The Filene Research Institute brings fresh energy and ideas to the credit union system,” said PSCU President/CEO Michael Kelly. “PSCU looks for partners that share our vision of empowering credit unions to compete and prosper. Filene exemplifies that spirit, and PSCU is proud to support the Institute.”
Mark Meyer, CEO at Filene in Madison, Wis., said, “In 2004 PSC stepped up to become a Chairman’s Benefactor to support Filene’s innovation work, including the i3 program and many of the most interesting ideas that have emerged from it. Even in the face of the Great Recession, PSCU maintained its strong support."
