Bank Transfer Day: Joliet CU Finds New Accounts, Old Friends
The $160 million, 21,500-member NuMark Credit Union in Joliet, Ill., found Bank Transfer Day to definitely be worth the effort, a senior manager said.
“We opened at least 26 checking accounts, got a few loans and made a couple of business referrals,” said Michelle Balog, NuMark’s executive vice president. “We did 25% of our usual checking accounts goal for the month in four hours really. On a usual Saturday, we’re lucky if we open two accounts at a branch.”
