Bank Transfer Day: Westerra Enjoys Name Recognition, 'Many Inquiries'
Whatever the final numbers emerge from Bank Transfer Day, Colorado’s Westerra Credit Union, the state’s third largest, “is just very enthused about the overall dialogue we’re getting throughout the region,” Alan Peppers, president/CEO, said today.
The new account signups “have been very good all month for us but the inquiries were getting from the public is just outstanding,” declared Peppers, the head of the $1.2 billion Denver CU.
Westerra’s top management, he said, has been tracking branch activity “but I just don’t have the numbers yet but will have them Monday.”
Westerra was particularly pleased that the Denver media listed his CU “as one of the top 10 places to go to get low-cost checking services.”
That kind of promotion “is rather nice,” said Peppers adding Bank Transfer Day “has simply stimulated so many positive inquiries.”
Peppers said also his CU has had no contact with Occupy Denver, which two weeks ago witnessed tough police tactics to clear demonstrators.
