MADISON, Wis. – CUES Tech Port, the subscription advisory service, and Terry Treadwell, its co-founder and managing director, are parting ways. Treadwell, working with CUES and with consultants Carl Faulkner, Steve Williams and Terence Roche from Arizona-based M ONE and later Cornerstone Advisors, has seen the subscriber list grow to approximately 6,000 recipients for the CUES Tech Port newsletter. The paid Web site, meanwhile, has about 2,000 credit union executives and 300 vendor registrants, said Treadwell, who has been managing the Web site and newsletter from her base in Florida. Changes already have been made and more will be forthcoming, CUES and Cornerstone Advisors said. "In early 2003, (we) will launch the redesigned CUES Tech Port Web site. With a new look and feel, (it) will be even easier to access and navigate," the two organizations said in their joint announcement. "And, of course, we'll continue to add new items to keep you abreast of current technology and events affecting the credit union industry," the announcement said. It added: "Terry Treadwell, who has been performing the Herculean, and often times overwhelming, task of managing both the newsletter and the CUES Tech Port Web site for the past two years, will be helping transition the day-to-day management .to CUES and Cornerstone." Barb Kachelski, senior vice president of member knowledge and CIO at CUES, told Credit Union Times that the change was made primarily to enhance the service and bring it in-house. "Cornerstone Advisors has the IT experience in the financial services industry – and I've always been very impressed with their experience and knowledge – while our staff will provide the skills to manage the newsletter and Web design," Kachelski said. The announcement said: "The revised newsletter will be more streamlined in focus and content, but still provide the same high-quality technical and market information. "You can expect to see more original articles and columns from the folks at CUES and Cornerstone, as well as new tools, templates and best practices." Treadwell, a CPA and financial services industry veteran who describes herself as CUES Tech Port's "co-founder, chief cook and bottle washer", said she has heard from many credit union executives since the change was announced and that she is now looking for new challenges and opportunities. "Feedback like this is what keeps me going," she said. "I have amassed a huge library of practical credit union best-practice knowledge and research over the past three years and I'm anxious to continue to work with credit union executives and vendors to further the progress the industry is making. "I have an `intelligence engine' here. I just need a car to put it in." CUES and Cornerstone Advisors said they welcome comments and suggestions about the CUES Tech Operation and invite feedback to Kachelski at [email protected] or Cate Pitts, Cornerstone's marketing manager, at [email protected]. Treadwell, meanwhile, can be reached at [email protected] or (813) 792-2727. -
