Who Are We?

We’re CUNA Mutual Group and we’re delighted to be a pioneer sponsor of THAT Conference 2019! Each year we send dozens of our IT employees to THAT Conference to learn and grow—and this year, we’re focused on giving back. In addition to our own learning, we want to share our expertise and our successes on our IT journey–and hopefully make some lasting connections.

What Do We Do?

We’re an insurance, investments, technology, data analytics, and financial services provider focused on helping people achieve a brighter financial future. With a rich heritage supporting credit unions and the cooperative financial movement, we work hard each day to deliver solutions that help people achieve more, no matter where they are on their financial journey.

With more than 450 IT employees, we’re a company focused on:


We do the right thing for our employees, our customers and the communities we serve.

Creating a culture where every employee feels welcomed and can be their authentic self.
Data Analytics and Innovation

One that can meet the rigorous demands of consumer preference and a rapidly changing financial marketplace.

Creating space for employees to give back and find a home.
