How to Hire the Next CEO or Be Hired as The Next CEO

OM Financial - CU Conferences' Strategic Partner

Wednesday, May 18, 2022: 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. Eastern

Tim Strandquist, a former executive recruiter and Kirk Kordeleski, previous CEO of Bethpage FCU ($9B in assets), will present a webinar that will help prepare credit unions to hire their next CEO and help future candidates get hired as the next CEO.

In our work with credit union boards and CEOs, we find too many organizations that fail to take the right steps to prepare candidates for the top job. On the other side, too few of candidates have taken a closer look at and developed the full range of skills for what it takes to succeed as the organization’s leader.

In addition, we will discuss how the CEO interview process works and what the board and CEO candidate should look for when developing a strategic plan for the interview.

Credit Union Boards

  • Start sooner and plan more

  • Understand the difference between being a senior leader and being a CEO

  • Give each internal candidate a tailored analysis and opportunity to bridge the gaps before the selection process begins

CEO Candidates

  • Experience Readiness – having the right qualifications for the job

  • Personal Readiness – who you are as a person, fit with the culture

  • Network Readiness – who you know inside and outside the credit union

  • Process Readiness – what to know, how to draft the questionnaire, etc.

  • Relationship Readiness – how you get along with others, leadership strengths, etc.

But online hacking, data breaches, and identity theft are present in cyberspace and adds risk to a credit union’s operation.


This webinar is designed to present, in a straightforward manner, how credit union executives and board members can understand how the institution can take advantage of the web while limiting risks and protecting member data.


Peter Fugaro will discuss the basics of the cloud and cyberspace, how credit unions can grow a footprint through online services and present a simple understanding of associated risks and what measures the credit union should be taking to mitigate those risks through best practices.
