Callahan & Associates, the leading credit union data and consulting firm, is celebrating 30 years of dedication to the credit union industry.

“Ed, Chip, and Bucky positively impacted an entire generation of credit union executives,” says Jon Jeffreys, Callahan’s standing managing partner. “The current team is proud to follow in their footsteps and looks forward to the next 30 years.”

Callahan & Associates, the leading credit union data and consulting firm, is celebrating 30 years of dedication to the credit union industry.

On April 1, 1985, three NCUA executives — Ed Callahan, Chip Filson, and Bucky Sebastian — founded Callahan & Associates. The co-founders were proponents of the credit union system and deeply committed to helping its institutions prosper and embrace their cooperative difference.

Callahan’s founders launched their business with three goals in mind:

1.    Build a database with a listing for every credit union in the United States.
2.    Give individual industry institutions the ability to see themselves as part of the greater system.
3.    Bring collaborative opportunities to the industry during a time when innovation was a new idea to many leaders.

“We started with a blank business plan,” says co-founder Chip Filson, who now serves as the company’s board chairman. “Ed had a different mentality when it came to de-regulation. He believed credit unions — not the government — were responsible for their own actions. We took that thought and made it a goal to offer a holistic view of the industry.”

Callahan maintains the same cooperative spirit and enthusiasm for credit unions that propelled the company’s founders — making the firm a trusted credit union resource for more than three decades. Although the industry, regulations, and technological developments have drastically changed, the firm’s mission and dedication remain constant.

Callahan & Associates continues to offer credit union’s access to industrywide data resources such as Peer-to-Peer, CUAnalyzer, MortgageAnalyzer, and Branch Analyzer; best practice research and leading content on CreditUnions.com; and networking and collaboration opportunities through best in class webinars, networking events, and the new Executive Resource Center.

“Ed, Chip, and Bucky positively impacted an entire generation of credit union executives,” says Jon Jeffreys, Callahan’s standing managing partner. “The current team is proud to follow in their footsteps and looks forward to the next 30 years.”
