Three founders have nearly a century of CU tech experience

SAN DIEGO, CA (July 13, 2020)Finopotamus (, a new online resource providing technology coverage exclusively to credit unions, officially launched today. The digital publication combines a blog-like format with feature articles about today’s most important tech topics. Finopotamus is the joint creation of W.B. King (former tech reporter for Credit Union Journal), John San Filippo (co-founder of Credit Union Business), and Roy Urrico (former tech reporter for Credit Union Times).
