- Where you choose to place yourself
for a part of a day or a whole day
to work in a business is going to be an important decision.
I looked at how we can leverage the best
of where co-working has evolved.
A place where you feel comfortable,
you have all the amenities that you need
to be successful and put those together.
One of the initial things that germinated into BECU
is a true shared value as community.
BECU is successful, I believe, because they get involved
in the communities in which they work with.
And that is an exact same shared value
that we have listed in our five core values.
- That humanity that BECU has,
that's culture driven throughout our organization
is what starts to set us apart.
I think why BECU was perfect fit for Atlas was
the relationship that Bill and I had built
from the very beginning.
Making sure that our values were shared.
- [Bill] They utilize all the different technologies
to make sure that my experiences is great.
You know, I remember having a particular
banking need as an entrepreneur.
Like I needed to make sure that funds were available
on a particular day and the time was tight.
I texted Andrey. He's on vacation
and he's sending me back and said, "No worries, it's done."
I mean that was fantastic.
- [Andrey] At the end of the day I'm Bill's business banker.
And if Bill needs something,
I wanna make sure that, he gets what he needs
so that Bill can focus on what he does on a day-to-day
and that's growing Atlas.
We live and breath values of our members first.
What that does for BECU as a brand, as an organization,
builds a lot of trust.
But also too is that people are part of something
that's greater than themselves.
You may hear it in our branding or our marketing.
You know, people over profit.
But it does bring truth throughout the organization.
- [Bill] We're bringing in the best if you will
in class of, what's going to enhance
the experience for our members.
So it makes me feel really good about
recommending and putting BECU as a brand next ours.
