Take a Look at the Collaborative Difference at New Ideas Institute
Tuesday, September 15, 2015 6:25 AM

New Ideas

We hear about it all the time in the credit union system—the more we collaborate, the better products and services credit unions can offer their members. Despite calls for collaboration, however, few credit unions enjoy fully integrated collaborative partnerships with fellow credit unions. Why?

Kirk Kordeleski, CEO and founder of Kordeleski Consulting, says many credit unions can't come to terms with not controlling the entire process, or they can't break old habits to try new things. In his upcoming talk at the New Ideas Institute in San Antonio, Nov. 1-3, Kordelski will discuss key aspects of the collaborative difference.

When collaboration works, it's powerful, Kordelski says, by improving speed to market, enhancing operations, and saving millions of dollars.

Kordelski is the former CDEO of Bethpage Federal Credit Union. His efforts drove Bethpage FCU to become the largest credit union in the Northeastern United States; and he played a vital role in creating the system's largest comprehensive collaborative effort among individual credit unions. He is widely considered a breakthrough financial performer with an unmatched track record of growing credit unions and providing leadership and direction in the nonprofit community.

Kirk KordeleskiAs CEO of BFCU, Kordeleski steered the corporate strategic vision and operating plans for this $5.75 billion community institution and led a 14-member senior leadership team and their 550+ indirect reports, to peak performance levels. His leadership ensured world-class member service, strong financial performance, and high-velocity growth.

Kordeleski elevated BFCU’s national standing to become the 15th largest credit union in the United States with more than 250,000 members. The company’s assets grew 450+ percent throughout his tenure, from $950 million to $5.75 billion, doubling size of the organization every five years.
