Member Driven Technologies (MDT), a private cloud alternative for core processing and IT needs based in Farmington Hills, announced Patrick Spyke has been elected chair of the board of directors.

Spyke currently serves as the CEO of Lansing’s LAFCU. He believes MDT’s success is the result of both leading technology and cooperation.

“Technology is increasingly impacting the member experience. MDT enables credit unions to better compete with the myriad financial institutions while sharing cost of its technology with all MDT credit union clients,” Spyke says. “MDT is a way for credit unions to benefit from their cooperative nature. We are stronger when we work cooperatively; and when we work together, there is no telling what we can achieve.”

MDT hosts the Episys core platform from Symitar, as well as dozens of seamlessly integrated solutions and supporting services to help run the entire institution, including digital banking, payments, lending, cybersecurity, and check processing and imaging. LAFCU is one of MDT’s four credit union owners.

“Pat is an exceptional leader who is passionate about using technology to advance member service and increase efficiencies,” says Larry Nichols, president and CEO of MDT. “His guidance and counsel will help MDT deliver the modern, secure technology and services needed to successfully support our credit unions for years to come.”
