David Stevens

Branch Manager
Azura Credit Union

CUlead is a program aimed at building and enhancing our credit union management staffs' leadership abilities to further the credit union and cooperative movements. With these CUlead spotlights, we're excited to shine a light on these leaders.

This week, we meet David Stevens, branch manager at Azura Credit Union (Topeka, KS).

How long have you be in the credit union industry?

1-4 years

What is your favorite thing about working at a credit union?

My favorite thing about working for a credit union is that it truly takes the member-first approach.  Every decision that is made is for the ease and betterment of the member.

What does true leadership mean to you?

I have always been a believer in servant leadership in which you never ask someone to do something that you wouldn't be willing to do yourself.  A leader isn't a job title, it's a mentality.

There are two types of people in this world. What are the two types?

Those who like hockey, and those who don't.
