Brett Wooden is the co-founder of Wooden Consulting, LLC – an industry wide consulting company committed to lead businesses into the “Post PC Era” by establishing relevance through sales and mobile strategies.
Brett has been in the financial industry for nearly 20 years. Throughout his career he’s held positions as a teller, personal banker, branch manager, market development consultant, business development officer, business development manager, SVP of marketing and IT, and chief retail officer. While at a credit union in the Northwest, he developed a reputation for using technology to attract new members. He made national trade news when he started using his iPad—a Father’s Day gift from his family—to make “field visits” to the offices of busy professionals who wanted to open accounts but did not have time to do so in person. This technology helps members join, update accounts and use other services conveniently. His idea is being replicated in credit unions across the nation.
Brett thrives on helping others embrace and utilize new member engagement strategies in today’s changing world. He is a frequent speaker around the country at Credit Union League and Technology Conferences. Brett was also named the NW Credit Union Association’s Young Credit Union Professional of the Year and The Credit Union Times’ 40 and Under Trailblazer for setting a national trend using tablet technology to take financial services into the field.
Brett earned a BA in Marketing and Management from the School of Business at Portland State University. He currently lives outside of Portland, Oregon and works as the Chief Retail Officer at Providence Federal Credit Union. Brett is a member of the CU Speakers bureau and serves as a member of the faculty team at the Southwest CUNA Management School (SCMS).
When you spend time with Brett you will see that his passion and enthusiasm are contagious.
