Negri Speaker Series Presents: My Wild Ride in the Inner-City Check Cashing Industry with Tom Nix
October 24, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Tom Nix fought his way up from the mean streets of San Pedro to revolutionize check cashing services. While the Beastie Boys sang about Nix Check Cashing, he was hit with armed robberies, cutthroat competition, the L.A. Riots, and an assassination threat by the Chicago Mob–overcoming it all to serve urban communities. Tom’s company, Nix Check Cashing, one of the largest alternative financial services providers in California, became a valued and trusted financial institution across southern California. He sold the company to Kinecta Federal Credit Union for $45 million in 2007. Hear the lessons he learned along the way to achieving personal goals well beyond expectation.
