In this episode of OutBüro Voices featuring LGBTQ professionals, entrepreneurs, and community leaders from around the world, host Dennis Velco chats again with Myles Meyers CEO and founder of Superbia Services.
We chat about the very long road to bringing his vision to serve the United States LGBTQ community through financial services and products that eliminate discrimination and biases. Further, through using those services, provide much-needed funding for LGBTQ community organizations. With his 30 years of financial institution experience lense in early 2015, Myles sought out an LGBTQ financial services organization and found there was none. Knowing the institutionalized discrimination that many traditional financial services organizations impose on the LGBTQ community and individual biases of staff of otherwise well-intentioned institutions, Myles saw the strong need for a new financial services organization that is focused on the needs of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, interest, asexual, queer, questioning persons and our wonderful community supporting allies. He also understands that most nonprofits serving and supporting the LGBTQ community struggle to meet current operational expenses let alone have the financial option to grow. So, from the outset, Myles set his sights on creating a new financial service organization that supports the individual, small business owners, and community nonprofits.
In this chat, you'll get a great overview of the steps taken, progress, next steps, and immense personal commitment of Myles and his team. So far it has been a 4-year journey. It is with good reason a highly regulated industry and therefore Myles and his team been working tirelessly to meet and exceed all state and federal regulations to ensure Superbia Services is a safe and sound financial institution.
