Up until his death in July, former President/CEO DeFarra “Dean” Gaymon was working on re-opening a Credit Union of Atlanta branch to serve in a historic and underserved area of downtown Atlanta.

The $55 million CU is set to re-open a third branch on Auburn Avenue today. Closed since May due to renovations, the branch was acquired from a merger between CU of Atlanta and Wheat Street Baptist Church Credit Union in early 2004. While the merger enhanced the products and services offered to members, the branch’s design limited the amount of service staff could provide, according to Cassandra Brown, assistant vice president of marketing and business development at CUA. The redesign will afford members the opportunity to open new accounts and investments and apply for loans. The Sweet Auburn branch will also have a walk-up ATM and house the CU’s call center.
