Financial services veteran to lead PSCUs Advisors Plus consulting team
Glynn Frechette to accelerate track record of helping credit unions grow
ST. PETERSBURG, FL (April 25, 2017) — PSCU has announced that Glynn Frechette has been named SVP of Advisors Plus, PSCU¹s division of strategic consultants and marketing experts. Frechette will lead the team to further develop Advisors Plus¹ consulting and marketing assets. PSCU Owners that utilize Advisors Plus outperform credit unions in multiple areas, when compared with those that do not.
During the 2016 holiday period, PSCU credit unions that opted for continuous consultative and campaign support from Advisors Plus netted an average incremental spend per account of 16 percent more than card programs not benefiting from Advisors Plus support. This indicates the value and importance of actively managing card programs, which can double the incremental growth effect of a high-spending period.
Last year, Advisors Plus engaged with over 250 Owners, conducting 1,100 individual credit union campaigns that targeted 4.9 million cardholders and generated the following results:
- Increased credit card outstandings by 10 percent more than the industry average growth rate
- Recorded an average 10.5 percent increase in sales volume 30 percent greater than the industry average
- Experienced an 8 percent growth in accounts and a 12 percent growth in transactions, both double the rate of non-Advisors Plus users
- Generated over $700 million in balance transfers
- Facilitated 85,000 account activations
- Boosted credit line increases for 300,000 accounts
- Generated more than $105 million in sales
³With his deep experience in financial services, Glynn is the perfect leader to strengthen and expand the Advisors Plus suite of high-performing offerings. PSCU will continue to invest the necessary resources into Advisors Plus to ensure Glynn and his team of experts can help credit unions grow and increase operational efficiency,² said Chuck Fagan, PSCU President and CEO.
Frechette has spent 23 years in the financial services industry, specializing in credit union and community bank partnerships.
