Big SECU Helps Out Small GKCU
The $26 billion State Employees’ Credit Union in Raleigh, N.C., and the $11 million Greater Kinston Credit Union in Kintson, N.C., have signed an agreement that will manage Kinston CU’s IT operating systems and services.
SECU will provide full IT back-office support that is expected to help GKCU minimize operational expenses and invest in growth opportunities. SECU’s IT systems are expected to provide the platform for GKCU to offer member products and service with greater convenience and accessibility, according to a joint statement released by the credit unions.
SECU provides similar operational services to the $128 million Latino Community Credit Union in Durham, N.C.
“With (SECU’s) assistance and support, GKCU will be able to focus more on servicing membership, community outreach and expanding awareness to the surrounding communities within our field of membership,” said Shawn Wilson, manager/CEO of GKCU.
