Credit union CEOs discuss what they wish they’d known

The Leadership Bet’s Bill Partin to sponsor and moderate May 23 webinar

CHARLOTTE, NC (May 2, 2024)The Leadership Bet, which helps credit union leaders be their best and transform lives, is proud to sponsor an upcoming webinar, “What I Wish I’d Known as a New CEO,” moderated by founder and CEO (that’s Chief Encouragement Officer) Bill Partin.

Joining Partin, former president and CEO of South Carolina-based Sharonview Federal Credit Union, at 1 p.m. EDT on May 23 will be three credit union CEOs: Chris Parker of Northeast Credit Union, Mike Terzian of Foothill Credit Union and Frank Wasson of CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union.

Each of the CEOs will draw from their first few years at the helm, to discuss what they wish they’d known – specifically about creating culture, leading their executive leadership team, and interacting with important stakeholders, like board members—before they took their top roles.

“When we as leaders invest the time, energy and attention  in being our best, we truly can transform lives – for our colleagues and employees, for our members and for ourselves. I’m looking forward to this conversation,” said Partin, who has more than 40 years of experience in financial services and self-improvement. “To quote Benjamin Franklin, ‘An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”

To sign up for this free, 60-minute webinar, taking place at 1 p.m. EDT on May 23:

About The Leadership Bet

The Leadership Bet was formed to help veteran and aspiring leaders connect their passion for leadership with proven processes to effectively lead others. A key component to The Leadership Bet is servant leadership. When we put others above ourselves, we all do better, personally and professionally. That's why our motto is: Great leadership transforms lives. Making the Leadership Bet means putting all your leadership “chips'' on the leadership table to create an environment in which your team can thrive. That team can then deliver high quality customer service because their “buckets'' are full of encouragement and belief in their skills and abilities. The Leadership Bet is NOT a gamble. Rather, it’s a calculated risk that everything rises and falls on leadership. For us, the word "bet" has become an acronym. B = Be disciplined. E = Execute your plan. T = Take risks. Good leadership changes lives and GREAT LEADERSHIP transforms lives! For more information:
