Symposium23: How ALM First’s Acquisition of DDJ Myers Enhances Their Focus on Credit Unions


February 11, 2023 CUbroadcast Studio Lounge ventured to the beautiful island of Maui for the CUES Symposium February 5-9, 2023. Once there, they interviewed the conference’s expert presenters, credit union attendees, vendors — as well as many other industry innovators, game changers, and sponsors ALM First, DDJ Myers, and Survey & Ballot Systems.

Two powerful female leaders joined CUbroadcast in the Studio Lounge to discuss the latest acquisition moves in the credit union industry. Those women would be Deedee Myers, President at DDJ Myers, and Emily Hollis, CFA, CEO of ALM First. They joined to share some close-to-home acquisition news and that would be why ALM First acquired DDJ Myers and how this business move allows the two organizations to excel in serving credit unions in today’s fast-paced, business environment.
