Gateway Services Group Creates Program Resource Center for CUs
The center will house a team dedicated providing customized support for credit unions' insurance, investment and trust programs. Prior to its creation, Gateway Services' support team was operating from multiple locations.
"Bringing all the [center] employees under one roof will allow us to provide better support to our credit unions and their members, better utilize our technology and people and provide better cross-training and back-up within this important team, " said Scott Jentz Gateway Services' president/CEO.
The $328 million Financial Resources Federal Credit Union said the new center has been an "invaluable resource," said Lena Matthews, president/CEO.
"[Recently], GSG's program resource team was called upon to provide a high level of direct member support and service to our investment services program to help our team concentrate on maintaining growth momentum," Matthews said.
Gateway Services said it provides a toll free number to access the resource center team, a service welcomed by the $303 million FAA First FCU.
"They are responsive to all of our questions and we appreciate the reports provided so that I know what is going on in our program," said Fidel Gonzalez, vice president of financial services at FAA First.
