Ohio Catholic Federal Credit Union strengthens its potent partnership.
In September, I wrote about how one Ohio credit union transformed a partnership with its local diocese into a mutually beneficial relationship. Over the holidays, Ohio Catholic Federal Credit Union ($149M, Garfield Heights, OH) opened a branch inside the Diocese of Cleveland building to considerable fanfare.
The ribbon on the new branch was cut on December 3. Ohio Catholic CEO Randy Trimm regards the opening as a significant milestone in the relationship between the credit union and the Diocese.
“The positive energy and excitement were highly evident,” Trimm says. “We are both thrilled and flattered to expand our partnership with the Diocese of Cleveland and all of its related entities as we work together to better the lives of those we serve. This event reflected the very premise upon which the credit union industry has flourished: collaboration.”
Approximately 175 visitors, including staff, stopped by, and the event resulted in six new account openings. A local morning show sent a crew to the event and captured the spirit of the day; check out the coverage below (Video courtesy of WKYC's Good Company).
