improvements in both customer satisfaction and revenue creation. One study indicated
that providing good customer experience makes a person five times more likely to
recommend a company and more likely to purchase in the future—an outcome that
bodes well for CU Realty and the credit unions we serve. We’re excited to bring
someone of David Gray’s caliber on board to work with our team and clients to achieve
these goals.”

consumers and I’m excited to join a pioneering company that streamlines the purchase
