Vice President, Business Development
Nearly every new CU Strategic Planning client gets to know Christopher first; since his start here in 2018 he’s met with over 300 different credit unions, most of whom we proudly call clients. As our VP of Business Development, he’s adept at assessing a credit union’s needs and how our products can help credit unions unlock opportunities to change lives and communities.
Having served as a first-hand witness to the impact of the mortgage crisis on low to moderate income families in San Francisco, Christopher was immediately taken by the inspiring work our client credit unions do in their communities. His dedication to partnership development for credit unions is informed by his understanding of community development issues through the immersive process of becoming a Credit Union Development Educator (CUDE), which he undertook in his first year with us.
Christopher has been involved nearly every area of our work; he’s facilitated community development summits, has served as a strategist and grant writer for clients during the CDFI FA Grant process, has been a speaker for CUES and facilitates strategic planning sessions.
