AUSTIN, Texas — The $495 million Velocity Credit Union has been recognized by the Texas Credit Union League for its work with Hispanics. The league has awarded the CU the Juntos Avanzamos or “Together we advance” award.

“Velocity Credit Union began in 1947, and from day one we’ve welcomed Hispanics into our membership,” said Velocity CEO Larry Strong. “At Velocity, reaching out to the Hispanic community is not just an ‘initiative,’ it’s how we’ve done business for 59 years.

This is our goal, our duty and our responsibility,” Strong added.
