My favorite part is taking what I learned and applying it to my job and becoming a better officer of the company. -Todd Transue, CFO for College Loan Corporation”

Todd Transue is the Chief Financial Officer for College Loan Corporation, which means he is responsible for the company’s accounting, finance, and human resource functions. He worked incredibly hard to achieve this position, earning a bachelor of science from the University of California, Riverside and a master of science from San Diego State University. Beyond his traditional education, Todd worked hard to become a Certified Public Accountant, a Certified Fraud Examiner, as well as a Chartered Global Management Accountant. With all those accomplishments and education on his resume, why would Todd re-enter the classroom? In his own words, “I wanted to take live classes in areas where I was not as skilled or did not have as much formal training, such as human resources and organizational leadership.”

Todd has a love of education but also strives to make his personal and professional life better by learning things he did not otherwise know. Even though his emphasis in UNLV’s Continuing Education is from a business point of view, Todd’s introduction to the classes was through personal enrichment. With his wife, he enrolled in a wine tasting class as well as a French language class. That’s when he heard about the Human Resource Management Certificate and the Organizational Leadership program. He has since completed both certificates, but for a successful person like Todd the work is not done. He will soon start the Lean Six Sigma program in hopes of finding ways to help his company attain optimal efficiency. Todd truly is the lifelong learner.
