McIntyre Danny Temp Website

Danny McIntyre
Vice President Investment Services

Danny brings over thirty-five years’ experience in the financial services industry. He began his career in New Orleans trading US Treasury, Federal Agency and mortgage backed securities. In 1987 he and his new bride Diana moved to Dallas, Texas where he established and managed a taxable bond trading desk for a regional brokerage firm.

In January 2003, Danny “discovered” credit unions. He worked at a corporate credit union to help establish a broker-dealer and trading desk and very quickly became a big fan of the credit union movement. He has spent the past fourteen years dedicated to helping credit unions be successful. Actively involved in asset liability management, he has helped credit unions build investment portfolios that complement their balance sheets and help them manage based on both risk as well as return.

Assisting with education and training for credit union professionals and volunteers remains a primary focus for Danny as well. “Education allows us to help members be more efficient which in turn affords them more time to serve their members – people helping people.” 

Danny attended Loyola University and Delgado College in New Orleans. He completed his studies as a business major at Tulane University. He holds his Series 7 and 63 licenses.

When asked about his greatest accomplishment, Danny points to convincing his wife Diana to marry him 29 years ago. He said the only two things that come close to that are raising their son, Chase, and watching the Saints win the Super Bowl in ’09, although he admittedly had little to do with the latter.
