NACUSO Welcomes John Janclaes as
its Newest Board Member
NACUSO announced the addition of John Janclaes as its newest Board Member. “We are excited to welcome John Janclaes, President of Nymbus CUSO, to fill an available position on our board,” said Jack Antonini, CEO of NACUSO. “John brings tremendous credit union leadership experience, passion and relationships as well as experience with successful collaborations.”

For more than 30 years, John has successfully led strategic growth initiatives for financial services organizations, dedicating much of his career to the credit union movement, including as president and CEO of Partners Federal Credit Union. He is a highly regarded industry innovator, advocate and connector. After leading five-fold growth at Partners over his 17-year tenure, John was named president of Nymbus CUSO in 2021, working with credit unions to break through barriers to growth by leveraging digital banking for niche member segments and taking on digital challengers. Nymbus CUSO empowers its credit union owners and partners to break through growth barriers by quickly establishing niche digital banks to expand reach, deepen community connections and create new revenue streams.

John Janclaes has been honored with the James D. Likens Award as a distinguished alumnus of the Western CUNA Management School, where he is on the faculty and has served on the board of trustees. He previously served on the board of directors for the country’s largest CUSO, CO-OP Financial Services, and he is on the current board of AKUVO, one of the most leading-edge CUSOs.

NACUSO Spring 2021 Focus
The pandemic was an event that was totally unexpected and has fundamentally changed our view of the world. It changed how we work, how we interact with others, how we identify and deal with risks, how we employ technology, how we shop for services, and how we think about our future.

As we begin to emerge from the pandemic restrictions, now is the time for reflection on some fundamental questions.

We asked our Platinum and Gold Partners to share their feedback. We hope you enjoy their insight within our latest issue of the NACUSO Focus.

Join NACUSO Gold Partner Alacriti along with Celent to Learn More About Real-Time Payments in the U.S. Market

The U.S. has come a long way in its journey to real-time payments, with TCH and Zelle in market and FedNow just around the corner. COVID-19 has accelerated that demand to move to real-time.

A Call to Arms.

Next-Generation CUSO: A New Innovation Model for
Credit Unions to Thrive

Amid global upheaval and pandemic-forced shutdowns, credit unions met member needs with digital experiences powered by technology built over the last decade. But digital alone is not a future-proof strategy. To thrive long-term will take leaning into foundational credit union strengths and fierce pursuit of continuous innovation. The result: dynamic personal experiences that keep members loyal no matter what lies ahead.

Nymbus CUSO President John Janclaes, a longtime credit union advocate and operator, and Trish North, financial institution growth champion and Nymbus Chief Customer Officer, will join Brian Lauer, who (literally) wrote the book on CUSOs, to talk about how a new kind of CUSO will help credit unions confidently move forward—with crisis-level speed.

On June 24 at 11:00 a.m. PDT | 2:00 p.m. EDT, register to learn:

  • How a new CUSO model that focuses on growth and continuous innovation, not singular operational efficiencies or products, will reposition credit unions from playing defense to offense against digital challengers
  • Why getting comfortable with speed is critical to thriving long-term
  • How niche banking leverages credit union strengths so they can differentiate—and win—in today’s fiercely competitive environment
  • Why an integrated ecosystem of people, processes and technology makes scaling for future growth possible

All registrants will receive a copy of the webinar playback.
