Hi, it's Carolyn McArdle! Every Friday morning at 8:15am on 98.1 The Breeze, you might hear me talking to various Patelco Credit Union employees about how Patelco can help YOU improve your financial well-being.
I've been a Patelco Credit Union member since 1996 and there are so many reasons that I continue to bank with Patelco, but the number one reason is the people. Every single transaction I have had or done with a Patelco representative has been a pleasant one. Patelco has MY best interest in mind, and I truly feel it when I walk into a branch.
When you become a Patelco member, you instantly are a shareholder in the company. As a member-owned, not-for-profit organization, their people-before- profits belief is deeply rooted in their purpose-driven philosophy.
At Patelco Credit Union, you’ll find significantly better rates, lower fees and best-in-class products. You'll find employees that truly care about their members.
Erin Mendez is the President, CEO and a board member at Patelco Credit Union. I had a chance to talk to Erin about some of the great benefits of being a Patelco member. She also shares a wonderful story about one of their members who literally turned their life around with Patelco's help. You don’t want to miss that story.
You can find out more about how Patelco Credit Union can help you at https://www.patelco.org/.
Feel free to take a listen to the conversation that I had with Erin, below.
Patelco is insured by NCUA.
