About Mark Ritter

Mark Ritter is the CEO of MBFS and an expert in credit unions and business lending. His primary role at MBFS is overseeing the strategy of helping credit unions assist members with business needs and consulting with credit unions on planning the delivery of services to their membership.

In 2002, Mark launched Members 1st Federal Credit Union’s business lending program from scratch, growing it into a top-ten program nationally. In 2012, he became the CEO of a struggling business lending CUSO, which had seen five CEOs in as many years and consistent financial losses. Under Mark’s leadership at MBFS, the CUSO expanded its services to over ten times the number of credit unions, increased revenue tenfold, and maintained positive cash flow throughout his tenure. MBFS has played a crucial role in assisting numerous credit union members in securing financing for their business and investment needs. Mark, originally from Berwick, PA, where he was part of a high school football team with national and state championships, later worked full-time as a student assistant for the Penn State Nittany Lions while pursuing his undergraduate degree during Penn State’s transition to the Big Ten. Mark continues to support Penn State and currently resides in Sullivan County, PA, with his wife and two teenagers.
