Kirk started Ongoing Operations about the same time that SECU joined OTS (Open Technology Solutions) with two other large credit unions. Since the beginning, we have shared the same vision – that credit unions need to collaborate to gain scale and refocus ALL of their energies on their digital service strategies in order to have a chance at success. We have gone on to create S3, our second operational CUSO that frees up our focus. Through CU2.0, Kirk furthers this vision by providing a great blueprint for how credit unions can quickly engage in their digital futures with real actionable tools today.
