Sticking to the fundamentals and building relationships with members are key components of lending, say two award-winning lenders.
Lloyd Gill, retired CEO at $565 million asset We Florida Financial in Margate, Fla., and Tim Dunham, vice president of consumer lending at $1.1 billion asset Credit Union of America in Wichita, Kan., joined the CUNA News Podcast to talk about lending during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, what lending will look like in the future, the importance of relationship building, and more.
The CUNA Lending Council named Gill the 2020 Phil Greer Lifetime Achievement Award winner and Dunham the 2020 Rising Star during the CUNA Lending Council Virtual Conference in November.
