Leaders do not lead by reminding people of their title and making them do what they want them to do. Leaders lead by example, by bringing people together and helping them to see the value in an objective and then encouraging them to do everything they can to justify their spot on the team and to make their teammates proud.
Scott Arney has served as CEO of Chicago Patrolmen's Federal Credit Union (CPFCU) for the past 14 years. Headquartered in Chicago, IL, CPFCU is a full-service financial institution which has been serving the financial needs of Police Officers and their families since 1938. CPFCU recently opened the National Police Credit Union, a marketing division of CPFCU, which is the first and only full-service financial institution created solely for members of the national Fraternal Order of Police.
An avid thinker and, truly, The Serial Decision Maker on a daily basis, Arney spearheaded the development of CPFCU's Financial Planning and Education Center (FPEC), which is distinctly designed to help educate and empower others to be the best they can be. According to Arney, better decision making skills make for better leaders in both personal and professional endeavors. And, through the extremely talented team of both in-house staff and strategic partnerships with local and national organizations, the FPEC continues to work with individuals, families and businesses to learn and leverage lifelong financial management and personal decision making skills. While the FPEC is part of a credit union open to a limited membership base, the FPEC's educational programs are open to the general public; and many of our partners have offices throughout the country.
