MOLINE, IL (February 9, 2017) — Last week Matt McCombs, Vibrant’s CEO and President, could be found overseeing the completion of a successful merger but today he’s outside shoveling the walkway.
McCombs truly believes in leading from the ground up. Whether it’s shoveling the sidewalk, setting up for marketing events, or working the teller line — McCombs has done whatever it takes to best serve the credit union’s members.
“The atmosphere and type of leadership Matt’s developed here at Vibrant is uniquely one of a kind.” Steve Ducey, Vibrant’s Chief Experience Officer, said. “Our employees genuinely want to be here and I think a lot of that can be attributed to Matt’s willingness to always help out with whatever needs to be done.”
At Vibrant, employees are not just a face in the crowd. McCombs not only knows each and every 180 employees, but has yearly one on one meetings to discuss potential growth and address any concerns employees may have. Of course, employees are encouraged to also reach out to McCombs throughout the year at any time — his door is always open, just check his calendar first, he’s a busy guy!
McCombs’ lead by example type of attitude has created an award winning team. Vibrant has been recognized as one of the top 5 Credit Unions to Work for in the United States and the top place for Young Professionals to work in the Quad Cities. To top it all off, this team is here to stay. According to an internal survey conducted by Vibrant, 74% of Vibrant employees see themselves working at Vibrant for their entire career. The employees genuinely like coming to work everyday and are in it for the long haul.
Financially speaking, as of December 2016 Vibrant’s assets have grown to almost $562 million and Vibrant ranks in the top 8% in the country for overall return on member value. The award winning team has been recognized as a true partner to its communities and membership in proving there is a better way to bank.
