WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (12/31/13)--In a move described as a "spin off" by both credit unions, North Carolina-based members of Clearview FCU, Moon Township, Pa., have voted to join to Piedmont Advantage CU, based in Winston-Salem, N.C., the credit unions announced Monday.
Piedmont Advantage will also acquire Clearview FCU's Charlotte branch and combine it with one of its existing facilities.
The Charlotte branch was the only one of Clearview's 29 branches not based in Pennsylvania.
Clearview FCU and Piedmont Advantage worked closely over the past few months to finalize the "win-win" situation, as described by the credit unions. All Charlotte employees of Clearview FCU will be retained in the agreement.
"We are eager to show our new members how we are easy to do business with, and always work to improve the financial well-being of every member we serve," said Judy R. Tharp, Piedmont Advantage president/CEO. "Our vision at Piedmont Advantage is to enhance the lives of our members by providing quality products and caring solutions with a "can-do" attitude."
The new members of Piedmont Advantage also will have access to a complete line of financial service solutions at all the Piedmont Advantage CU branches throughout North Carolina. Members also have access to the CO-OP Shared Branch Service Center Network, Credit Union Service Center locations, and nationwide CO-OP surcharge free ATMs.
