Featuring John Janclaes, President at Nymbus CUSO

Thank you for tuning in to episode 55 of The CUInsight Network, with your host, Lauren Culp, Publisher & CEO of In The CUInsight Network, we take a deeper dive with the thought leaders who support the credit union community. We discuss issues and challenges facing credit unions and identify best practices to learn and grow together.

My guest on today’s show is John Janclaes, President at Nymbus CUSO. John was a guest on the podcast two years ago so we dive right into how the environment for credit unions has evolved and how Nymbus has grown. The team at Nymbus offers a fresh perspective on growth for brands, credit unions, banks, and fintechs, with the technology and support for digital transformation. 

During our conversation, John talks about the significance of technology as it pertains to acquiring members, deepening relationships, and retaining members for growth. He expresses how digital transformation is a team sport and it takes collaboration to integrate new systems and see progress. John talks about the book he is writing to help leaders assess, manage, and optimize partner relationships called, “The Partnership Advantage: How to Revitalize Community Financial Institutions.” It will be available this summer. When looking ahead, John is particularly looking forward to the Modern Core his team is developing to reach new growth and unlock new opportunities. Listen as John shares insights as the industry is evolving and how we can continue learning from each other.

As we wrap up the episode, John talks about an influential leader in his life, a book about high performing companies, and a city he loves to visit. Enjoy my conversation with John Janclaes!
