BOULDER CITY, NV (January 18, 2021) — “We want to offer services to smaller credit unions so they can add value without losing their identity or passion for their community,” stated Gary Perez, President/CEO of USC Credit Union when speaking with Susan Mitchell, CEO of Mitchell, Stankovic & Associates and Founder of the Underground about big ideas in 2021. “We want to start a new credit union, not to compete but to support smaller credit unions with a similar mission.”
