GETTING TO KNOW ... Dion L. Williams, CFP®, MBA President / CEO Del-One Federal Credit Union Dover, Del. Dion Williams has been president and CEO for three years. He works in tandem with Del-One's Board and staff to effectively serve members and continually strives to add value to the credit union's membership. Q. Describe your leadership style rative. I believe in surrounding myself with outstanding talent, communicating the vision and then getting out of their way and letting them shine. More than anything, I've been a lifelong admirer of Ronald Reagan. His optimism and his belief in the ability of every individual to be exceptional and self-sufficient is something that's always resonated with me. Furthermore, that concept is a natural fit with credit unions and our commitment to improving the financial lives of our members. On the technology side, Del-One has added online account opening and funding, mobile apps for iPhone and Android, and by year's end we will have an iPad app, personal financial management platform and mobile deposit capture. Lastly, our call center hours were expanded to 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I'm looking forward to the members having all of these services and service delivery channels at their disposal in 2014. The members were patient with us throughout the year as these projects were in progress, and I'm really excited about them enjoying the benefits as we enter the New Year. Q. What makes you want to get up Q. Charitable involvement is and how you developed it. A. My leadership style is very collabo- and go to work every day? A. My wife and I have three daugh- ters, ages 10, 8 and 5. One of the most important values we want to instill in them growing up is to have a servant's heart. The opportunity to serve others is the reason I have spent my career in the credit union industry. The ability to serve others and set that example for my girls inspires me. Q. What are you most looking forward to about this New Year? A. Over the past year, Del-One has invested in infrastructure and service delivery channels. We relocated one branch, renovated another, gained two new locations through a merger and opened our first high school branch. 50 important to Del-One FCU. What are some of your recent efforts? A. Del-One continues to see growth in the Del-One Foundation, a nonprofit corporation that has been formed to raise funds for charitable purposes, specifically the purpose of benefiting the residents of Delaware. The foundation funds and sponsors various charities throughout the year. A few of the beneficiaries for 2013 include: Autism Delaware, Alzheimer's Association of Delaware and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The Del-One Foundation was nominated for the 2013 Governor's Outstanding Volunteer Awards. Q. Has your credit union received any other accolades? A. Del-One is proud to have been recognized in both 2012 and 2013 by employees and the general public. In the [Wilmington] News Journal's annual survey, Del-One was voted as a Top Workplace. Also, in the News Journal's Readers' Choice Awards, Del-One was selected as Best Credit Union. We're proud of how this reflects on Del-One as an employer as well as our standing in the entire state of Delaware. Q. What book/podcast/blog would you recommend to people who want to better their knowledge of this industry? A. Jim Blaine on Credit Unions (www. jimblaineoncreditunions.blogspot.com). I genuinely appreciate the common sense and candor in making some valid points about the state of the industry today.
