Tina's Take

  • Three Reasons You’re Not Achieving Your Leadership Goals

    Sep 14, 2018
    Tina Giorgio: Vince Lombardi had it right when he stated that, “Leaders aren’t born, they are made.” Leadership is a process. And, like any process it begins by envisioning a desired outcome and creating a framework of the steps to achieve that outcome. Sometimes there are real obstacles that prevent us from achieving our goals. By conducting a personal evaluation, we can often identify and address things that are standing in our way.
  • 3-2-1 We Have Contactless!

    Jul 30, 2018
    Tina Giorgio: Contactless transactions include everything from flashing your watch at the point-of-sale to paying for your groceries, via your refrigerator. As “smart” devices get even smarter and more prevalent, payment has become part of their foundational fabric.
  • The Dawn of Artificial Intelligence

    Tina Giorgio: With so many possible applications, it’s hard to predict the path that artificial intelligence will follow. In her latest blog post, ICBA Bancard President and CEO Tina Giorgio examines present-day use cases to see where things are heading.

Visa Signature product addresses today’s consumer spending patterns

Washington, D.C. (April 25, 2018)—TCM Bank, N.A., a subsidiary of ICBA Bancard®, announced the addition of the Visa® Signature Travel Consumer Credit Card to its product lineup. The new product helps community banks be responsive to consumers’ evolving payment needs and lifestyle choices.

Consumers are spending more on travel and experience-based purchases, with affluent households and older Americans driving this growth, according to Visa’s Spring 2018 Market Outlook report. Travel exemplifies this shift to quality-of-life spending with affluent households ($150,000+ income) spending $883 more for these purchases compared to seven years ago. Consumers aged 55 or older represent the largest increase in quality-of-life spending at 30 percent, or 19 percent of total affluent households.

“TCM continues to evolve and look for ways to enhance and add product features that fill a need for community bank customers,” TCM Bank President and CEO Damon Moorer said. “Visa Signature cards offer attractive rewards, redeemable for merchandise, lodging and travel, along with perks like concierge service, hotel discounts, travel and lost luggage insurance that compliment consumers’ desire for leisure, comfort and convenience-based products and services.”

Visa Signature is supported by TCM Bank’s U.S.-based customer services representatives and carries no annual fee. As the credit card issuer, TCM assumes all risk associated with card issuance.

“TCM helps community banks build and strengthen customer relationships with convenient payment options that are ideally-suited for today’s on-the-go customer,” explains TCM Bank Chairman Noah Wilcox and president, CEO and chairman of Grand Rapids State Bank in Grand Rapids, Minn. “In light of today’s economy, this new product offering will undoubtedly be well-received by community bank customers.”
