Dick Nesvold, President/CEO of SouthPoint Federal Credit Union has been named a “Rock Star” by Credit Union Magazine, a Madison, Wis. based credit union magazine covering the United States. Nesvold was one of 48 rock stars from a broad cross-section of credit unions, leagues and related organizations recognized in the special edition of the magazine.
This designation is for ordinary people who are doing the extraordinary. All of us have bright ideas from time to time, but few of us have the passion, conviction and drive to put those bright ideas into action. Some people do, however, and we call them “rock stars.”
The vision is simple yet profound: Making people’s lives a little bit better each day. “Fortunately, the credit union charter and the cooperative philosophy are pretty cool things,” Nesvold says. “I’m not sure our members and potential members always understand what that means, but for us in leadership roles, it’s very meaningful. Our focus and vision are about the betterment of our members. I hope every day I can have a positive impact on somebody, somewhere, someplace.”
