THINK will be April 18-20 in Scottsdale, Ariz. Its theme is, “Resetting Priorities in a New Landscape.” THINK gathers leaders from different fields to provide advice to credit unions. This year’s conference will focus on how credit unions can do more with less in today’s economy. Hsieh will speak about “Successful Business Innovations in the New Economy.” Zappos.com, which sells shoes, clothing, eyewear, watches and other apparel, grew its sales to more than $1 billion in 2008 from $1.6 million in 2000. In November, Amazon.com Inc. acquired Zappos.com for shares worth $1.2 billion. Prior to joining Zappos, Hsieh co-founded Venture Frogs, an investment firm specializing in Internet start-ups. Before that, he co-founded LinkExchange, an advertising network that was sold to Microsoft for $265 million in 1998. Hsieh has about 1.6 million followers on Twitter. CO-OP Financial Services, Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., offers debit processing services, shared branching, check imaging services and mobile payment services to credit unions. It also provides a network of 28,000 surcharge-free ATMs. Previously announced speakers include Bob Herbold, former chief operating officer of Microsoft Corp.; Tim Sanders, former chief solutions officer of Yahoo! Inc.; and Dave Schembri, CEO of smart USA.
