COLUMBUS, Ohio – Corporate One FCU has named Robert Coyan as its new SVP of Marketing and Operations. Coyan replaces Lee Allen, who retired in December after spending 12 years with the corporate. Coyan hails from Alogent, a company Corporate One knows very well as it is one of its key vendors for Check 21 solutions. Corporate One uses Alogent products for the automated deposit capture and exchange solution it offers credit unions. It was Coyan’s grasp of Check 21 and the payments sector that made him attractive to Corporate One. Coyan’s work with Alogent gives him a unique perspective on one of the most debated questions regarding Check 21 – just when will electronic exchange take off? Most agree the answer to that question depends on the banks getting up to speed, as CUs are used to a truncated environment. Coyan believes banks will be ready sooner than people think. “I think that everyone is going to be pleasantly surprised as to how strong the initiative has been within these financial institutions over the past 12 months or so. They are aggressively pursuing this in 2005,” said Coyan. Though Coyan’s background is not really in credit unions, his relationship with Corporate One has exposed him to what the industry is all about. “I’ve worked indirectly with Corporate One for quite a few years; it’s allowed me to meet quite a few folks in the industry,” he said. “I’m really excited at this concept that we’re owned by our members and we’re a service provider,” he said. So now heading up marketing and business development in the competitive corporate network, what’s Coyan’s take on corporate competition? “There are a couple of ways to look at it, if you want to be territorial, you can. But if you look at our world through the eyes of your members, you see diversification is healthy for the industry,” said Coyan, nothing that CUs that use multiple corporates are spreading their risk and also driving best of breed products. Corporate One has also promoted Marcus Wannemacher to vice president, operations. Wannemacher is responsible for managing Corporate One’s ACH, ATM, depository services, share drafts, and item processing operations, as well as Check 21.
