COLUMBUS, OH (October 4, 2018) - Recent studies indicate that increasing numbers of Ohioans are choosing to bank with credit unions; Ohio credit unions served 2.83 million people and provided $177,273,023 in financial benefits in the past year.
“Every month we track our growth,” Painesville Credit Union CEO Lori Guzzi said. “In the last 12 months, we have grown 250 members. So, we’ve had a steady increase every month in the last year for membership growth. I think part of it is the word is getting out about credit unions.”
“We know our members,” Guzzi added. “We’ve been here for 76 years, so we have had families that have four generations banking with us... I just think that attests to the stability here.”
