Ep 62 - Banking Association Perspectives with Chris Moya, CEO of ICBA-NM

Even with the rapidly shifting financial landscape, community banks remain a pillar of the local economy. Up until recently, interest rates remained largely unchanged and favorable for business owners and buyers. But over the last 18 months, a shift has taken place that is showing us a new reality.

In this episode, Chris interviews Chris Moya, CEO of ICBA of New Mexico. They discuss upcoming marketing trends for community banking – like showcasing the value you bring to the community, building relationships with younger customers, and finding beneficial partnerships with fintechs and marketing agencies.  It’s not about changing who you are, it’s about telling your story.

Topics Include:

  • Why there has been a change in buying behaviors and patterns

  • What the upcoming marketing areas, trends, and activities are

  • How the right partnership can add value to your community bank

  • How community banks can refresh their brands to add more value

  • What the future of AI looks like for community banks

  • Where the banking environment is moving into and evolving short- and long-term
