Adrian is a graduate of Texas Tech University with a BBA and an MBA from the University of Texas at Dallas.
Adrian’s lending career began in 1994 with Omni American FCU where he cultivated an indirect loan program that helped name Omni American FCU the Leading Credit Union in the nation for total loan percentage increase for 1995. In 1996, Adrian co-developed the indirect lending program for FLS, Services in Fort Worth and Dallas, which aggregated auto loans for eight different Credit Unions.
In 1997, under Adrian’s management, FLS’s Dallas / Fort Worth operations generated over $84 million in loan volume without any losses and only $82,000 in loan delinquency greater than 60 days. Prior to joining CU Alliance, Adrian was instrumental in developing and deploying Community Credit Union’s auto leasing program with AutoFlex Leasing.
Adrian joined CU Alliance in 2000 as the President and CEO and orchestrated the successful re-launch of the CU Alliance indirect lending program. He did it by building out an extensive dealer network and focusing refinements to the indirect lending model. Within a short three year period, the CU Alliance Team had expanded its Indirect Lending Platform into six states, serviced more than sixty Credit Union clients and aggregated in excess of $800 million in auto loans. Since 2007, Adrian and his team have diversified CU Alliance into two additional Credit Union business units; a full service mortgage company and an Insurance Services Agency.
