RTP Federal Credit Union Celebrates 40th Anniversary

RTP, NC (www.allCUnews.com) – On Thursday January 17, 2008, RTP Federal Credit Union celebrates its 40th anniversary. This milestone will be honored in combination with a Grand Opening event for its newly opened RTP location later this spring.

For 40 years, employees in the RTP area have been turning to RTP Federal Credit Union for great rates, low fees, and exceptional service on a variety of financial products. Born on January 17, 1968, to EPA and NIEHS employees, RTP Federal Credit Union was operated from a desk located within EPA. As the credit union grew, it wasn’t long before it hired more employees and moved into its first permanent branch location in RTP. Over the years, RTP Federal Credit Union expanded further, opening branch locations in North Raleigh and Cary. Most recently, its primary RTP branch moved to a new location at 21 Park Drive on Highway 54 in RTP on November 19, 2007.

"We are proud to be where we are in the financial industry and excited for the future. No matter where the next 40 years take us, we will remain committed to you, our member. Whether you joined the credit union 40 years ago or today, thank you for 40 great years, and we look forward to 40 more,” says Doug Wilkerson, President.

From adding branches, to employee and member growth, to high-tech technology, RTP Federal Credit Union has seen many changes over four decades. However, no matter how much the financial industry changes with the times, one thing at RTP Federal Credit Union remains the same. It continues to be guided by core values to provide superior, personalized service to its members. RTP Federal Credit Union believes that its members are its top priority and number one asset.

RTP Federal Credit Union currently has branches in RTP, Raleigh and Cary.
