FEATURING: Dennis Devine, CEO of Alliant Credit Union

Founded in 1935, Alliant Credit Union was created to serve the employees of United Airlines. With most members traveling across the globe, the top 10 credit union had far fewer branches than other firms its size. Today, it has transformed itself into a digital-first financial institution with no branches and a nationwide presence.

To cement its leadership position, Alliant named Dennis Devine as their new CEO in mid-2020. Prior to Alliant, Devine held senior roles at KeyBank, Citizens Financial Group and PNC Bank.

To understand what makes Alliant unique and why a legacy big bank executive would want to ‘downsize’, we are joined by Dennis Devine, CEO at Alliant Credit Union. Dennis shares his perspective on how Alliant delivers the best of digital while still meeting the expectations of a great human experience.
