MADISON, Wis. (12/4/13)--Just shy of his last day as president/CEO, Jeff Post shared what was right about his nine years heading CUNA Mutual Group.
For Post, the "right person, right job, right results, right now" mantra anchored him while he guided the company through a rough economy, according to an interview with Credit Union Magazine.
The domino effect of surrounding himself with good people, who in turn surrounded themselves with good people, served him well, he told the magazine.
His greatest source of pride is CUNA Mutual's designation as one of the world's most ethical companies by international think thank Ethisphere. Ethisphere recognized CUNA Mutual for its credit union advocacy, commitment to ethics and compliance, and community involvement.
The credit union system provides incredible opportunities for people, but it is up to the individual to maximize his contribution by building skills sets and being involved in the community, Post said, giving a nod to the Credit Union Development Education program administered by the National Credit Union Foundation.
"The fact that it's a cooperative group and one that's focused on people helping people makes it a very fulfilling place to work," he told Credit Union Magazine.
Post will continue in an advisory role until July 2014.
Credit Union Magazine next will feature an interview with Bob Trunzo, Post's successor as president/CEO as of Jan. 1.
