Last week Capstone Managing Director John Dearing had the opportunity to attend the 2016 NACUSO Annual Conference on April 4-7, 2016.
Over 400 people attended the Las Vegas event, exchanging ideas and listening to industry experts. Conference topics included investment services, insurance services, innovation and operations, technology, member business lending, mortgage services, and business development.
Erik Wahl, an internationally recognized speed artist, author and entrepreneur, delivered the opening keynote. Wahl’s message “UNTHINK” inspired CUSO leaders to expand creatively beyond traditional thought patterns and unlock new ideas.
John Dearing attended the Conference because of Capstone’s many years of experience in helping CUSO clients grow through M&A. “It’s an exciting time to be in the CUSO space,” John reported. “Leaders are thinking of new ways to grow and we’re finding increased interest in pursuing strategic M&A as an avenue for growth.”
