State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) continues to invest in serving members with convenience and accessibility to branch locations across North Carolina. The steady growth of the Credit Union within the Triad region has resulted in three new branches in Greensboro, NC since March 2012, with another SECU office opening in the area later this year on Battleground Avenue. Currently serving members in nine Greensboro locations, the three newer facilities located on Holden Road, South Elm/Eugene Street, and High Point Road offer full service convenience to SECU members and potential members who reside and work in the Greensboro area south of Interstate 40. Additionally, the future relocation of SECU’s Summit Avenue branch to the new Murrow Boulevard site will offer even greater accessibility to members and Aggie fans working and living near North Carolina Agricultural and Technical (A&T) State University.
With 244 branches in all 100 North Carolina counties, the Credit Union has been steadfast in providing branch services in all areas of the State, while also offering automated options including online and mobile services, 24/7 Contact Centers, and an 1,100+ CashPoints no-surcharge ATM network. SECU’s growth in membership and expansion of products and financial advisory services demonstrate the need for continued brick and mortar personal service, further evidenced by SECU’s 2012 Membership Survey results. The 2012 Member Survey conducted by CUNA Research showed that SECU branches are conveniently located within an average of 5-7 miles away from members’ homes and places of work. Survey findings consistently indicate that 40% of members currently live within a 4-mile drive of the nearest branch, while roughly half of employed SECU members work within a 10-minute drive of the closest Credit Union.
Damian Carter, SECU Senior Vice President of the Greensboro-West Market Street branch comments, “We are very pleased with the growth in the Greensboro/Guilford County area. The Credit Union has made great strides in finding new facility locations to provide convenience for existing and future SECU members in this area. We look forward to serving our growing community!”
