Jim Minge, President & CEO, Texas Trust Credit Union

A day at the office with Jim Minge is full of surprises. The number-crunching CPA turned CEO and President of Texas Trust Credit Union isn’t afraid to take on challenges and problems, nor is he afraid to laugh at himself and have fun at work.

Jim is the first to lend a helping hand and never fails to admit when he has made a mistake. He is never too busy to take time out to visit with a member or an employee. When he’s not pushing employees to be their best, he may be found playing a practical joke, singing a rap, or wandering about dressed as the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz.

Jim joined Texas Trust in mid-2011 after  spending 18 years at a credit union in Live Oak, Texas. Jim’s vision to make Texas Trust the best credit union in north Texas has transformed the sleepy credit union into a fast-paced, high energy, growth engine on the path to become a $1 billion financial institution by 2016.

Michael Rose, CEO, Mojo Media Labs

Michael Rose img629928cropped29Michael is the founder of Return On Energy, Inc. and the CEO of Mojo Media Labs, a digital marketing agency, which has become the laboratory for his Return on Energy methodology.  A scientist by training, a teacher by nature, and an entrepreneur by will, Michael Rose drew from his life experiences to create a new communication methodology and ultimately his book, ROE Powers ROI ™: The Ultimate Way to Think And Communicate for Ridiculous Results.

Michael notes that with ROE, he’s broken the code of business. “Once you adopt ROE and are disciplined enough to put it into practice, it will change the way you think and communicate, both at a personal level and in your position, whatever that seat might be, in any conceivable organization,” Michael says.  “ROE was developed as the secret sauce of my company”.
