"Mark is an invaluable resource for insightful and practical advice on NCUA -related regulatory matters. After working with Mark on several projects involving NCUA rules and applications, I've come to regard him as an indispensable resource. With his guidance our team is able to identify regulatory risks that typically escape market participants. In our time working with Mark he has shown a great ability to manage delicate matters with a deft touch. I find Mark to be very practical, which makes it easy to turn his advice into action. Finally, Mark is extremely well-versed in the credit union industry, offering a unique perspective on both its history and its current developments."

"When concerns regarding examinations and/or regulatory questions came into play, it was obvious that we needed the expertise of your team to get things done (which you did).
I really liked the prompt responses and having you and your team expedite research and answers for our team when needed were priceless.
Having the experience in your team to answer any and all of our questions immediately was a great benefit to our credit union.
Having the ability to answer and more importantly direct our focus on the important and relevant matters was key. Prioritizing materiality vs. subjectivity assisted us in correcting issues more quickly than anticipated.
I would recommend Mark Treichel’s Credit Union Exam Solutions to any institution needed consulting on any credit union matter. Most institutions do not have the ability to acquire knowledge that was learned through experience as easily as using your company.
We not only worked closely with Mark, but his entire team made themselves available whenever needed"
“When we needed assistance on obtaining approval from the NCUA to purchase indirect loan pools from a CUSO, Mark’s experience and expertise was invaluable. He made the process much quicker because he knew the language to use and the due diligence required prior to our request. We obtained everything we asked for, the first time. I know we would not have completed the process as soon as we did without Mark’s help.”

"Mark and his team helped us get a CAMEL upgrade and now NCUA will only visit annually. He and his team are my secret weapon."

" Many thanks to you and your team for your wise and balanced counsel. It was vital for us to be able to play this out and negotiate with NCUA. We were speaking with another credit union dealing with the same issue who caved in which negatively impacted their members.
"I have had the great honor and privilege to work with Executive Director Mark Treichel since I joined the NCUA Board in August 2014. I wish to thank you, Mark, for your much-valued assistance, keen sense of judgment, deft leadership, and compelling integrity over the years. You are hugely respected and much loved within the agency and that will serve as your enduring legacy.
When I think of Mark, I am reminded of a quote by Jim Rohn:
The challenge of leadership is to be strong but not rude; kind but not weak; be bold, but not a bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
Mark’s knowledge, experience, and skill is evident in every discussion. His career path and experience is second to none in the credit union industry.
My board and I found engagement
insightful and engaging.
That all said, Mark’s real difference is both his listening and communication skills that set him apart from many professionals in our industry,
I would highly recommend Mark for almost any engagement within the credit union industry.
