About our Co-founders
Smith Financial Consulting was founded in 2011 by Sean Smith and Betsy Sirgo. The goal has always been to provide credit unions and community banks with cards resources that were unbiased, and focused on their unique goals. A staple of our organization has been to remain independent for our clients and we will always serve their needs as our first and only priority. In addition to our co-founders, SFC has several industry veterans in the field that assist with identifying future projects and new partnership opportunities.
