Sollievo CUSO to help credit unions improve and manage risk position

MIDDLETOWN, PA (February 18, 2014) – At a time when regulations continue to increase, credit unions need relief. In the recent January 2014 NCUA letter, it stated that the “NCUA will be working to ensure that credit unions identify and mitigate forward-looking risks.” Over the past several months Mid-Atlantic Corporate Federal Credit Union has been preparing and developing programs to assist the credit union movement with these ever-increasing challenges.  

Mid-Atlantic Corporate is pleased to announce the launch of their CUSO, Sollievo, (pronunciation: solˈljɛvo) to offer a comprehensive collection of risk-management products and services to credit unions nationwide.

“Sollievo is an Italian word that means relief,” said Lori Gall, president/CEO of the CUSO. “We hear from credit unions everyday about their struggle to keep up with regulatory demands. Our mission is to provide peace of mind and help them meet compliance obligations and improve the overall risk posture of their credit union.”

Gall will lead Sollievo with a team of individuals who possess nearly 90 years of combined credit union experience, as well important industry certifications such as certified information security professional, enterprise risk management expert and business continuity professional.

“Lori and her team have the skill and knowledge to help guide credit unions through a difficult and ever-changing landscape,” said Jay Murray, president/CEO of Mid-Atlantic Corporate Federal Credit Union.

“Our plan is to offer comprehensive risk management services that credit unions can afford,” said Gall. ”Sollievo is geared to help credit unions with their most complex issues.”

Sollievo will offer a complete array of affordable risk management products and services. Services include:

Enterprise Risk Management
Managing risk is an essential component of a credit union’s operations. Sollievo ERM solutions, which provide enterprise risk monitoring, vendor management, and audit and exam findings manager, and an allowance, loan, lease, loss module are designed to assist credit unions with this process.

Information Security Services
Credit unions are entrusted with their members’ sensitive information. Criminals recognize this, which is why financial institutions are often the targets of criminal attacks.

Gall brings 27 years of credit union experience to her position as Sollievo’s president/ CEO.  She is a nationally recognized credit union executive who has held various leadership and volunteer positions within the credit union movement.
