Credit union branching out

BANANACOAST Community Credit Union (BCU) will open a branch in Pottsville in the coming months.

Chief executive Lyndon Kingston said the credit union’s staff were already active in the community.

“Branch manager Eloise Smith and our Pottsville staff are already active in the community, visiting business owners to determine how we can best support the region and be most relevant to the people who live here,” Mr Kingston said.

“Pottsville residents have already embraced the BCU community by becoming members of the credit union’s Murwillumbah and South Tweed branches.”

The opening of the newest branch coincides with the release of a new logo and new branch design.

Mr Kingston said the key to the credit union’s success was maintaining the “fair go” attitude to banking the credit union was founded on.

A specialised BCU lending centre for the Gold Coast is also planned in the coming months.
