Growth Powers Even Greater Local Commitment as Peoples Bank Becomes Advia Credit Union
Peoples Bank in Elkhorn, WI officially became Advia Credit Union on Sept. 1. Now providing membership eligibility to the entire nine southeastern counties of Wisconsin, the former Peoples Bank anticipates significant expansion opportunity as Advia Credit Union in both commercial financial services as well as serving individuals in the area with competitive deposit options, lending and digital access.
“We know that this means great things for those served by Peoples Bank, including competitive returns and opportunities for our customers, employees and communities,” said Tom Oehler, president and CEO of the former Peoples Bank. “Growth and long-term sustainability for those we serve was our goal in this acquisition, and Advia is very well positioned to provide that. The names on our buildings have changed, but those of the team committed to serving our communities have not. We feel that aspect is important to continued service to our clients and communities.”
The customers of the former Peoples Bank will now immediately enjoy expanded access to a growing list of locations in Advia’s multi-state footprint that includes Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan.
“This is such an exciting day for Advia Credit Union as our team join forces with those of Peoples Bank. Our goal is to complement each other’s areas of expertise in serving area families and businesses,” says Cheryl DeBoer, Advia's president and CEO. “For all members we serve, we want their experience to be easy and simple with access to financial tools that save them time and money. This growth for our credit union into Southeast Wisconsin is a wonderful example of how we’re working to reach our goal and live to our mission of providing financial advantages.”Go to main navigation
