About Us

The Leaders EDGE model takes a different approach than other indirect lending CUSO’s. We understand the most important element is that you own and control 100% of your Indirect Lending Program. Leaders Edge can guide your credit union in the development of rate structures and threshold levels based on our many years of experience in the industry.

Leaders EDGE was established by Leaders Credit Union in order to provide other credit unions the opportunity to take advantage of the benefits of indirect lending without having to manage the complexities of starting their own program.  Whether you want to expand your current program or ready to launch a new one, contact Leaders Edge to help get you there.

“One of the best relationships we have encountered in the Credit Union network.”

Why Work with Leaders EDGE?

From our experience of working with automobile dealers since 2008, we have learned their most important needs include:

  • Quick, quality decisions.
  • Ease of communication with an experienced loan officer to assist the dealer in structuring the deal.
  • Loan officers available during the same hours as the dealership is open.

Leaders EDGE is supported by a top-notch staff with over 50 years of combined lending knowledge, as well as extensive dealer experience. Leaders has decisioned and processed over 200,000 credit applications and booked over 45,000 indirect loan contracts totaling in excess of $1 billion. This team helped make Leaders Credit Union’s indirect lending program one of the best in the country and is ready to assist your credit union.

Dealers are provided with our loan officer’s mobile phones to call or text, during these hours of operation.
