Professional Profile

Jesse began his career in the movement during college while interning at a credit union. He fell in love with the "people helping people" philosophy and has played an instrumental role in leveraging the collaborative spirit of credit unions to build innovative services and drive down costs.

In August of 2002, Jesse joined Corporate Central as a Business Development Executive and soon-after was promoted to leadership roles in the marketing, sales, and strategic alliance departments. In 2016, Jesse joined the executive leadership team at Corporate Central and was named President of the CUSO InterLutions.

With nearly 20 years of experience working in the credit union movement, Jesse is proud of the accomplishments credit unions have achieved over the years, and believes there is tremendous opportunity for all credit unions to become wildly successful. “It’s been an absolute joy working with so many credit unions across the country, and witnessing first-hand the amazing benefits credit unions provide to their members and communities. Through hard work and collaboration, the credit union movement will not simply survive, it will thrive!”
