In this episode, I welcome Tyrone “Ty” Muse to this episode of State of Readiness. Ty is the CEO and President of Visions Federal Credit Union, a not-for-profit financial institution with $4.2 in assets and he will share the journey of his career from working with Jack Welch at GE Asset Management, to PriceWaterhouseCoopers, and Goldman Sachs. But in particular, Ty will share the challenges he faced when he joined Visions; changing it from what it was, to what it is, towards what it will be.
In my interviews, I try to remain unbiased – and I think I do a pretty good job in this episode also. But I have to disclose that I do have a bias. Of all of the business leaders I have met over the years and those I have interviewed, Ty stands out as one of my most favourites. Certainly he has drive and he has vision (pun intended) as all good leaders must. But his real passion, core values, and “true North” is helping people and it’s unmistakable. He is the quintessential “humble servant leader”. I have had several sit-downs with Ty over the last year or so and the conversation is always easy, inspiring, insightful – and real. The conversations have never ended because they lose steam, but because of some other prior commitment that brings it to a premature end. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did. To get a sense of the real Ty and what he is all about, be sure to see the link to the video at the bottom of his biography.
