WestStar had an opening for Chief Financial Officer at a critical time for us. I have known Mike Juratovac for several years and was confident that his team could help us find the right person for WestStar. Mike and his people were efficient, professional and eager to move quickly to help us. They worked closely with me to understand the specific needs of the position and the organization and were thorough and diligent in the process of screening candidates. In the end, we got the right person who was able to fit in immediately with our team and our organization. You can’t ask for more than that. OMA delivered for WestStar!
After a long career in one credit union, my move to SESLOC was the first CEO search which I participated in as a candidate. The team at O’Rourke exhibited the perfect blend of objective professionalism balanced with encouragement and caring for the stress the process can have on a candidate. Gene O’Rourke and Mike Juratovac communicated regularly throughout the interview milestones, providing updates on timing and expectations, plus valuable feedback after each segment. For SESLOC, this was a new experience using an outside partner for recruiting as they were filling a CEO position for the first time in 41 years. I have received feedback from the Board that they were similarly impressed with the way O’Rourke and Associates gave the time, attention and priority to this placement as if it was their only recruitment.
The O’Rourke and Associates team has been a great business partner to Oak Trust Credit Union. We worked together on an organizational transition initiative that included Board governance, leadership team development, executive coaching and the recruiting of our new CFO. Their comprehensive approach facilitated our success.
“Making a transition, a new opportunity is always a challenging as it involves change, relocation, new cultural dynamics and alternative business strategies. The Team at O’Rourke & Associates recognizes in me the leadership qualities that match the organizational goals and strategic initiatives of the Board of Directors here at Pinnacle. I’m excited to be the new CEO of Pinnacle and look forward to the future, recognizing that valuable business partners help us achieve more for our members.”
“The quality, integrity, and professionalism of the firm are the highest caliber. Their services extend far beyond simple recruiting. They build their high-quality reputation by personally customizing searches and their finding matches that fit the profile. In true credit union fashion, they are partners committed to the success of each client.”
Rocky Mountain Credit Union utilized the services of O’Rourke & Associates to find their current President and CEO. The result was a very qualified, highly energetic and motivated CEO to assume the reigns of the credit union. “After I assumed the CEO position, I found myself needing to find a qualified candidate to fill the VP of Finance/CEO position in my credit union. Once again Rocky Mountain Credit Union sought out the help of O’Rourke and Associates to find the right individual who would bring the qualifications and knowledge to this management position. Both from the candidate’s perspective and the employer’s viewpoint ORA is an excellent choice when seeking job placement vacancies.”
“Leadership transitions are difficult tor any organization and having the right business partners to support our recruiting was critical to our efforts. I appreciate working with O’Rourke & Associates as they diligently supported my team in recruiting a key member of our leadership team. Thanks to all…”
“Credit unions of all sizes are facing a time of great challenge and a huge opportunity to serve members. Having a strategic focus is vital to our survival, but often difficult based upon the number of hats that we are required to wear as credit union CEOs. Our credit union is a progressive organization. We have the latest in technology and strive to anticipate our members’ needs. I’m active, I’m involved in the industry and I’m determined to keep credit union philosophy alive during this time of change. That is why we look for trusted business partners who understand the complexity of the current market and our credit union’s business model to help us create our strategic plan.”
“Making a difference means more than working together as partners. It also means looking to the future of the cooperative movement and that’s what O’Rourke & Associates has done for many years. Many thanks go out to the team at O’Rourke & Associates for their support of the World Council of Credit Unions, Elder Abuse Education, Financial Literacy, and the Children’s Miracle Network. That’s a true partner, one that helps my credit union and gives of themselves as volunteers because they care about the industry.”
“The future of our industry will be in the hands of the next generation of leaders. With my five-year retirement plan upon us, I am so grateful to my board, my staff and my members for a career that has given me the opportunity to serve. Through the good times and challenges we have been fortunate to have trusted business partners like O’Rourke & Associates, who were dedicated to Ventura County Credit Union. They have helped us with strategic planning, organizational development, board education and the establishment of a leadership transition plan that the team will now facilitate.”
