Alliance Companies' Cebrick to Speak at National Association of Federal Credit Union's Strategic Growth Conference

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - March 9, 2010) -  The Alliance Companies, a National Association of Federal Credit Union (NAFCU) Services preferred partner, today announced that Managing Director Michael Cebrick will be a featured speaker at NAFCU's annual Strategic Growth conference, March 9-11, 2010. Cebrick, an expert in credit and debit card portfolio evaluation and payment industry solutions, partners with Jim Craig, vice president of marketing, 1st Advantage Federal Credit Union, to discuss how credit unions can "Implement a Strategic Plan to Maintain a Successful Payment Card Program." Recently, Cebrick and Craig were featured in a free NAFCU educational webinar talking about creating successful credit and debit card programs.

As the managing director of Business Development for The Alliance Companies' Alliance Financial Services division, Cebrick works with credit unions to evaluate and create successful credit and debit card programs. While helping to facilitate hundreds of card programs across the country, he has successfully matched many credit unions with card issuers.

Cebrick will also discuss how credit unions have been able to reduce the processing and operating costs for their card programs. Cebrick says "independent market evaluations improve card programs by showing portfolio managers where they can create a significant upside with enhanced technologies, product offerings and profitability, all while reducing the risk associated with unsecured card products."
