Ep 43. Breaking the Bank (ft. Josh Detar)

In this episode of Questioning Behaviour Sarah Bowen and Merle van den Akker speak with Tyfone's Josh DeTar. We talk about the traditional banking system and its competitors in community and neo-banking. Additionally, we wonder what it's going to take to "compensate" people for their time during the pandemic. Are we all going to end up in the roaring twenties, taking trips to Cabo? Or will a KitKat do? Josh DeTar's role with Tyfone is to deliver exceptional experiences to both current and prospective credit union clients in the Northwest. He has been with Tyfone for a little over a year but has been client-facing in the software as a service for the financial services industry for years. His expertise lies in providing uncommonly elevated levels of genuine customer service and care through building lasting relationships with everyone he comes into contact with. Josh lives in Portland, Or.
