MEMPHIS, TN (July 12, 2019) — Share One’s CUSO is transforming. The ownership of shares is shifting from an employee and client ownership structure to a majority client-based credit union CUSO.
Jerry Williams, President/CEO of Eglin Federal Credit Union, Martin Eakes, CEO of Self-Help and Self-Help Federal Credit Union, and Dr. David Tuyo, President/CEO of University Credit Union, finalized the stockholder ownership transfer. Collectively, the three credit unions own the majority in equal shares with the new structure.
Share One’s employee majority shareholders: Daryl Tanner, retired President/CEO; Carla Tanner, CFO; Rick Larsen, SVP Development; Don Conrad, SVP Sales; Scott Eungard, VP Sales; and Teri Van Frank, President/CEO, sold their shares to the three credit unions to complete the process.
Teri Van Frank, Don Conrad, Rick Larson, Scott Eungard, and Daryl Tanner, all members of the board of directors, resigned their board positions as required by the transfer. Martin Eakes, Jerry Williams, and David Tuyo now comprise the board of directors. Teri Van Frank, Carla Tanner, Don Conrad, Rick Larsen, and Scott Eungard will remain on staff.
Paul New acquired the company in 1995 and renamed it to Share One, Inc. Cumulatively, Share One, has over four decades of success serving the credit union industry offering core software and hardware solutions.
Share One’s employee majority shareholders and founding partners had a vision for the company in 1995. Their plans included generating funding for the development of the core software, NewSolutions, moving from a privately- owned company to a CUSO, continuously fostering the evolution of technology and new ideas, and doing everything with a focus on collaborating with our client base. “Our focus has always been on building relationships,” said Teri Van Frank, President/CEO of Share One. “This change in ownership will help us work every day with more personal input and collaboration, which will produce a better result for our customers,” she said.
