who we are
Mission StatementOur mission at MEA Financial is to provide the financial services marketplace with software and marketing solutions that will result in revenue growth and improve customer satisfaction.
Experienced ProfessionalsMEA is a national leader in the provision of innovative software solutions to the financial services marketplace around the nation. As specialists in both cutting edge technology and the financial industry, our highly experienced and versatile team creates and supports flexible solutions that meet the demanding requirements in an adaptable industry.
Industry LeadershipMEA Financial Enterprises L.L.C. was founded by Mike Wallace and Ed Rhea. These two individuals retired from Jack Henry & Associates after a combined 35 years of service. Mike started with JHA as a software installation programmer. He worked his way to title of President, Chief Operating Officer, and member of the Board at JHA. Ed also started as a software installation programmer and eventually became a Vice-President and the National Sales Manager at JHA. Both individuals were integral in the success of Jack Henry & Associates. Mike and Ed have demonstrated a superior knowledge of the industry’s software needs as well as how to lead a company focused on quality software solutions and customer satisfaction.
This experience led to the design of a product that would focus on, and fit the needs of, the small to medium size community financial institution. Many of these companies have been overlooked and have not had the ability to offer the wide range of products and services available through larger institutions. The goal of MEA Financial is to target this marketplace by helping them grow revenue and gain a competitive edge by enhancing their customer’s satisfaction.
In order to meet this goal, Mike and Ed put together a team that has over 200 years of combined experience delivering financial service solutions and products. The team has a vast knowledge of software development, installation, sales, and marketing, with an emphasis on customer satisfaction. With this combined experience and knowledge, MEA Financial is committed to offering superior products and quality solutions to meet the needs of our customers.

CHANGING THE FUTURE
How We Work
MEA focuses on application development with enterprise architecture and hosting, security and reliable customer service. Our growth and success are a direct result of our strong core values of excellence, intregrity, and service.
We take a different approach than the corporate giants. We don't mislead our clients with false hope. We don’t create layers of process that can slow down work. We simply focus on your goals and provide a talented team to reach them. When your priorities change, we change with you. And most importantly, we deliver...
Great Southern has partnered with MEA Financial for several years on the delivery of Mobile Banking and Text Banking services to our customers. MEA’s innovation and forward-thinking culture as a company made them an easy choice when we decided to replace our consumer online banking with a new product. As one of the beta banks for UniFi Digital Banking, we have enjoyed working closely with the development team to build a product that will allow customers to bank whenever and wherever they want with reliability and ease of use. Their service and attention to our needs is excellent, and we can always count on them to be responsive and to take action. They are also very open to working with third parties on delivery of ancillary services, and that has allowed us to choose products and services that are “best of breed” without concern of whether or not we will have a successful integration. We are grateful for our partnership with MEA, and excited for how their digital products will continue to help us meet the ever changing needs of our customers for years to come.
Christine Frederick — Great Southern Bank (Springfield, MO)Managing Director of Electronic Services
The MEA team has built a level of confidence and trust that is uncommon with vendor relationships today. Aside from the great personal relationships that have developed with our teams over the years – MEA has been an innovator in helping us put technology to work while maintaining a customer focused approach to banking. It is refreshing when a vendor listens to the banks needs and is willing to do what is needed without a bunch of red tape.
Tim Turbeville — First State Bank (Gainesville, TX)EVP & Chief Operations Officer
It is wonderful to have a company that truly cares to understand my bank and be there to support us whenever we need them… to be a true extension of our staff. MEA provides many technologies for our bank, and has for over a decade, and from all aspects; Cost, Support, Integration and Install it has been a phenomenal experience. I always look forward to new technology that MEA develops to add to our offerings. MEA’s services truly set us apart from our competition.
Ellen May — Cayuga Lake National Bank (Union Springs, NY)Chief Information Officer
As not only a bank employee but an avid Mobile Banking user, this product has hit a home run with everyone. Very easy install process and allows us to compete with everyone in our market.
James Weddington — RCB Bank (Claremore, OK)EVP & CIO, Technology & Operations Services
Implementation of Voice Access was one of the smoothest installations of an application that I have had in over 25 years. Voice Access runs so flawlessly that we almost forget it is there. MEA Financial is a great company to work with.
Dennis Hessel — BankData Services (Edwardsville, IL)President
We initially selected MEA Financial as our solution provider mobile based on the merits of systems compatibility and the flexibility of their solutions. They earned their place as our strategic mobile partner years ago through consist innovation, reliability, unparalleled customer service, and the ongoing provisioning of best of breed mobile solutions.
