MSUFCU Announces Grand Rapids Branch
EAST LANSING, Mich. — The MSUFCU Board of Directors and management are pleased to announce that MSUFCU will open a branch at 86 Monroe Center St. NW in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in the fall of 2017.
The Grand Rapids branch provides MSUFCU the opportunity to expand its services to nearly 5,000 members living within 10 miles of this location, including those who are part of the MSU College of Medicine Secchia Center and employees of the State of Michigan, which are select employee groups of MSUFCU. The new location will also provide members in the area with increased account access and additional ATMs. In the first year of operation, MSUFCU will create 13 new jobs at this location — one mortgage officer, two managers, and 10 financial services representatives.
“The decision to expand to Grand Rapids is part of our long-term growth strategy to better serve our existing members and over 13,000 MSU alumni there,” said April Clobes, MSUFCU’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “After receiving significant member requests regarding the need for branch access to our products and services in the area, we are excited for the opportunity to serve the Grand Rapids community.”
