Author: Stephanie Armas

For a career as illustrious as Howard Hoemann’s, it’s hard to believe that his start in the credit union industry was completely accidental. While attending Bradley University in the mid-60s, a Peace Corps flier caught his eye. He applied and was approved to work with credit cooperatives in Ecuador, with training in Puerto Rico. “My entire experience in Puerto Rico and Ecuador really opened my eyes, and I was completely captivated by credit unions,” says Hoemann, “watching people obtain good financial education, acquire low-cost loans and accumulate savings.” While on assignment in Ecuador, he helped develop existing credit unions and

Nobody Notices Normal

Author: Jim Struble

This Tuesday, I had the pleasure of being part of my first Annual Meeting for Electro Savings! I have to admit that between the Blues game (Gloria!) and the severe weather rolling in at the exact wrong time, it concerned me as to whether we would have anyone show up! Luckily, I was wrong, and we had plenty of members, volunteers, and staff come to support us as we celebrated our 77th Annual Meeting. I had a few favorite moments that night, one of them being the chance to introduce and recognize the staff of Electro. Instead of reading off

What happens when you truly believe in what you sell?

Author: Jim Struble

My first job was at a Burger King in Sparta, WI. Those that know me understand that I value a meal consisting of a burger and fries! When it came to selling to our customers, my favorite burger to recommend was the Gilbert Brown Burger. Don’t recognize the name? Gilbert Brown was a mountain of a man who played for the Green Bay Packers during the timeframe I worked at Burger King. He was so recognizable and popular, the restaurant chain capitalized on this fact in Wisconsin and named a double whopper (with double everything but pickles) after him. It
