Bucky Sebastian Foresees Pomp and Circumstance
Bucky Sebastian is considering housing the next stage of his professional life within the ivied walls of the College of William and Mary.
Sebastian and his wife have moved to Williamsburg, Va., and will have a son in law school at William and Mary in the fall. Sebastian noted that an executive with the Filene Research Institute is an alumnus of the school and that the school has a link with credit unions and credit union research.
What linked all these changes, Sebastian said, was the way the NCUF has stepped up to serve credit unions and the credit union industry in ways that individual credit unions would not be able to do on their own.
“For example, all the really large nationwide banks are going to have R and D budgets,” Sebastian said. “These days that have to if they are going to survive. Look at Kodak. Nationwide firm with a very strong brand a lot of history that actually discovered digital photography first. But because they didn’t do the research on how to make use of it, they became a failed company.”
