Don Arkell started his career in the Credit Union industry working as a frontline lender at Clark County Credit Union, in Las Vegas Nevada. While at CCCU, Don quickly moved through the ranks at the credit union, working in all areas of Sales and Lending. He eventually founded a CUSO owned by CCCU - Members Auto Brokerage Service, Inc.
Taking a break from the industry, Don established himself in the Pharmaceutical and BioTech Sales arena working for both Fortune 50 and startup companies. He was recognized for his sales abilities winning several national Sales Awards and mentoring Sales Teams.
After years in the world of Biotech, he couldn't resist the call of the Credit Union once again. Don joined up with Red Rocks Credit Union in Highlands Ranch, CO in 2007 as COO and helped RRCU to establish a vibrant Sales culture while transforming the Credit Union from full retail delivery to offering 100% of consumer loans and member service through remote delivery channels. This effort drove down operational expenses while increasing loans, total assets and net income.
Today, Don is a sought after speaker, trainer and consultant. He motivates
and trains staff with an entertaining and informative style. He truly believes consumers are better off with strong credit unions who meet their personal needs than they are without them. And we have an opportunity to deliver quality loan services with a focus on building strong communities and sustainable credit unions.
