Our Team

Kevin P. Chiappetta, CFA

In May 2017, Corporate Central launched its balance sheet optimization CUSO, QuantyPhi, and named Kevin as President. QuantyPhi’s ALM experts focus on finding opportunity on both sides of the balance sheet by running what-if scenarios that facilitate successful relative-value balance sheet decisions.

Kevin's initial career at Corporate Central began in January 1996 as Vice President Investments where he managed the loan, deposit, and investment portfolios. Kevin departed in June 2002, where he spent 11+ years working with credit union investment CUSOs and two years with an asset-liability modeling & consulting firm. Working primarily with credit unions throughout his career, Kevin brings a rich history of experience in his 30+ years providing financial services, with a primary emphasis in fixed income security analysis, portfolio management, and balance sheet risk management.

In August 2016, Corporate Central welcomed Kevin back as the Senior Vice President Investment Services to assist members in understanding the complete risk profile of their balance sheet risk, re-think traditional security analysis, and build portfolios to compliment the optimal performance of the entire balance sheet. Kevin also focuses on the continuing education for members and their supervisory committees and boards.

Kevin's education includes a bachelor's degree in Accounting from St. Norbert College in DePere, WI. Kevin is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) charter holder and an active member and volunteer for the CFA Institute in Charlottesville, VA. Kevin is also an active member of the CFA Society of Milwaukee.

Kevin married his college sweetheart in 1987 and assisted in the upbringing of his son and daughter. As of today, Kevin still has the role of cheerleader, proud supporter, and provider of unlimited, unsolicited life advice to his children. In his free time, Kevin is interested in soccer at all levels, watching a variety of sports, reading about interesting topics, spending time with family, and correcting their grammatical errors.

Danny McIntyre

Danny brings over 35 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, TX 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 14 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 2009, although he admittedly had little to do with the latter.

Matt Johnson

Matt joined QuantyPhi in February 2018 as a Financial Strategist. Matt works with credit union members to better optimize their investments.

His professional career started in financial services as a Financial Advisor in 1996. After almost a decade working in the “for profit” space, Matt made a career change to start serving serving credit unions. Seeing first-hand how credit unions differ from banks and the difference they make in people’s lives, Matt has been working in the credit union investment space ever since. In the past, he has worked with Balance Sheet Solutions, CUSO Financial Services, other credit union service organizations, which helped prepare him to work for QuantyPhi.

“I truly believe this is the most important work I can perform. The good work that credit unions do creates huge opportunities for their members and being in an industry that puts the member benefit first, is something that is never taken for granted.”

In addition to being a series 7 and 63 registered representative, Matt graduated from Western Illinois University in Macomb, IL with a bachelor’s degree in Communication. Matt also serves on the Board of Directors for a non-profit institution that provides services and programming for adults with disabilities.

Wade Cooper

Wade joined Corporate Central as a Financial Strategist in April 2019. His primary role is to help credit unions optimize and build a balance sheet that maximizes performance and allows them to better serve their members. Wade helps members learn about what their balance sheet needs from an ALM, risk, liquidity, and investment perspective. Once we determine those needs, he can assist credit unions with using the tools that they need to build an optimal balance sheet.

From 2015 to 2019, Wade served as the Supervisor of the Credit Union Section for the state of Illinois. At the time of his departure, there were 191 state-chartered credit unions with approximately $39 billion assets. He led an exam team of 14 examiners and three office staff. As a regulator, Wade made decisions regarding field of membership expansions, mergers, lending limit increases, disciplinary matters, legislation, and rule-making. He led the team to obtain accreditation from NASCUS for the first time. Additionally, Wade spearheaded a pilot program for an indirect investment pool which eventually became a permissible investment.

Wade brings varied experience in government and finance. From 2001 to 2007, Wade worked for the Illinois State Treasurer, Judy Baar Topinka, in the Illinois Funds which is an investment pool for public entities. In 2008, he joined the $70 million Prairie Trail Credit Union (PTCU) in Joliet, IL. PTCU would merge with the $210 million, privately insured, Argonne Credit Union, which would eventually be known as Abri Credit Union in Romeoville, IL. Following Abri, and before becoming a regulator, Wade obtained his Series 7 and Series 66 and became a financial advisor for two and half years.

Wade has a bachelor's degree from Iowa State University in Ames, IA, and a master's degree from Governors State University in University Park, IL.
