Investors, Entrepreneurs, and Leaders

Our Board of Directors is made up of a wide variety of business professionals with backgrounds in everything from retail and service businesses to banking and marketing. Every person on the Board not only volunteers their time, but has also purchased stock in CKDI. The funds we loan out were raised by dozens of investors over the 60+ years since the group was founded.
