CU 2.0 Podcast Episode 90 Bill Kennedy Tells How Many Credit Unions Will Close in the Next Year

Play
Read more

Bill Kennedy has spent a credit union career moving from institution to institution. He has worked at 11 - "6 or 7 were turnarounds, 1 was a startup," said Kennedy.


Often he's been CFO, and he has also served as CEO. He's seen a lot in his years at and near the top.


Know this about this podcast: Kennedy speaks his mind and he doesn't soften his opinions.


And he has a very strong opinion about how many credit unions will close in the next year, mainly as a consequence of coronavirus.  It's a big number. You want to hear it.


Along the way he says a huge credit union problem is poor board quality - and he does not mince words about that.


He also is worried about the industry's comparative inability to attract smart young professionals as employees - the industry is aging out at a time when communicating with young consumers is paramount.


He asks as well how many young professionals you have mentored. He says he has mentored 80+ in the past 25 years.


That will be critical because he predicts around half of senior credit union executives will retire in the next few years. Who is on deck to fill their jobs? At many credit unions the answer is nobody - and that, by the way, is another reason many credit unions will close.  There will be a shortage of qualified senior executives.


Think this is a bleak podcast? It's not a cheerful one. But Kennedy's are provocative ideas you need to hear.

Mentioned in this podcast is retired SECU CEO Jim Blaine - his podcast is here.


For a different perspective on boards, there's the John Pembroke, CUES, podcast.

Key Takeaways
  • Go is a systems programming language that makes programming fun and makes developers more productive
  • Go allows developers to write performant code easily
  • Go runtime is built into the binary, nothing else to install
  • Some very bright people are not applying for high profile Silicon Valley engineering positions because they are concerned about the tech interview process
    • They've asked "Why do I want to go through that much pain just to get rejected?"
  • It's not about what you know, its about learning and solving problems
  • Bill will give anyone a chance when they show him they take it seriously
  • Is the person you're interviewing a vampire?
    • They suck all the happiness out of a room
    • It doesn't matter how technically astute they are, vampires are no good
    • They always push back and complain versus looking for opportunities to grow
  • When you are forced to hire from a local pool, you have more limited options and it is more likely not to work out
  • Hire quickly and fire quickly, and let the candidate know you are giving them one chance
  • When you give someone the chance to learn and grow, they will put more effort into the relationship
  • Look for negative patterns in work history - are they looking from a place of growth or are they complaining?
  • Go into an interview being honest but show humble confidence
    • "No, I've never worked on that before but I know I can do it"
    • If you are under qualified for a senior job but you're honest and genuine, they may open a junior position just to get you
  • Find someone on the inside of an organization and study up on the organization's tech before applying
  • If the company is that tough on their interviewees, how do they treat their employees and do you really want to be there?
  • If you're in charge of hiring, re-evaluate what you're looking for
    • Build a family instead of a work force

On the NBA Beat Ep. 10b: Rondo’s Mishandling of Bill Kennedy Incident, Combating Homophobia in the NBA

Play
Read more
Last week, longtime NBA referee Bill Kennedy publicly announced that he was gay three days after Rajon Rondo was suspended for twice directing a homophobic slur at Kennedy. Before closing out with some Wizards discussion, this episode primarily focuses on how the Kings point guard badly mishandled the Kennedy incident. The hosts contend that, although the incident was ugly and regrettable, once Rondo used the derogatory term, he had a chance to make things right but instead took on a series of disappointing missteps: 1.) On at least a few occasions, the 29-year-old veteran denied to investigators that he even used the term, which was later confirmed by independent audiologists hired by the NBA. 2.) One day before releasing an apology statement on Dec. 16, Rondo fired off two ill-conceived tweets that were effectively non-apologies (3) According to reports, as of press time, Rondo has yet to personally apologize to Kennedy outside of the statement he released.      Learn more about your ad choices.

Chromeo is a phenomenal electro-funk duo comprised of Dave 1 and P-Thugg. maDCap caught up with David Macklovitch backstage at Sweetlife Festival and discussed his upbringing in Montreal, Chromeo's inspirations and their new album 'White Women.'

In the second half of this week's episode, we chat with Bill Kennedy, a staff writer on the Emmy-award winning Netflix original series, House of Cards. Created by Beau Willimon and starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, the show is a powerful dramatic series that "reveals the dirty" of Washington politics. As the show heads into its third season, Kennedy gives us a healthy aperture into their writer's room and walks us through his own writing process.
