Credit Union ONE Opens Relocated Shelby Township Branch
On Monday, November 6, Credit Union ONE opened its relocated, full-service Shelby Township Branch. Located at 55600 Van Dyke Avenue (just north of 25 Mile Rd.), the new branch features added conveniences designed to enhance the member experience, including extended drive-up hours and Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs).
In celebration of this grand opening, Credit Union ONE is offering promotions worth up to $800 and a special rate on 30-month CDs.
“Consumer preferences for branch banking continue to evolve,” says Credit Union ONE President and CEO Gary Moody. “This new branch combines the right mix of technology with very personalized service to deliver a great experience regardless of the reason for your visit. It is exciting to provide a full range of services with expanded hours to better fit our members’ lives and exceed their expectations.”
The particular combination of technology and personalized service at the Shelby Township Branch represents a new model for Credit Union ONE. Instead of staff being utilized for specific transactions (for example, one as “teller,” another for loan services), each branch representative at the Shelby Township Branch is able to help members access Credit Union ONE’s full range of services on the spot. The ITMs at the new Shelby Township Branch represent the latest advancements in branch banking and video chat capabilities and provide members with one more way to get personal, one-on-one service. In addition to permitting members to make typical cash withdrawals and balance inquiries, the interactive units can complete advanced transactions such as scanning, sorting and validating checks and counting cash deposits.
ITMs at the Shelby Township Branch are available in-lobby during regular hours (9 a.m.–6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m.–2 p.m. on Saturday) and via drive-up during extended hours (7 a.m.–7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m.–2 p.m. on Saturday). This new technology helps Credit Union ONE accommodate members’ busy schedules, while continuing to offer the high level of service they have come to know and trust.
Credit Union ONE encourages the community to visit the new branch to meet on-site staff, try the ITMs, and take advantage of the exciting grand opening offers available only at the Shelby Township Branch through Jan. 31, 2018. Members will get $300 when they use their debit card after opening a Cash Back Checking Account; up to $250 when they close on eligible direct auto, boat, RV, motorcycle and Freedom ONE Loans; and $250 when they close on a first mortgage, equity advantage, home equity or home equity line of credit loan. Members who deposit a minimum of $2,500 will also receive 1.4 percent APY on 30-month CDs.
Credit Union ONE plans an official ribbon cutting ceremony for the new branch in early December.
MCCCU Announces Stephen P. Grech as New CEO
The Board of Directors for Monroe County Community Credit Union (MCCCU) has officially selected Stephen P. Grech to be their new president/CEO. Grech will succeed Mike Newman, who had been MCCCU’s president/CEO since 2011 before passing away in March of this year.

The selection of Grech concludes a search process facilitated by Angott Search Group, an executive search firm which specializes in placing executives at financial institutions.

Beyond offering a wide array of financial products and services, MCCCU is passionate about being a great corporate citizen and investing its resources into the communities it serves," said Grech. "I am excited to become a part of the communities served by MCCCU. I am honored to have been asked to lead the organization into the future and build on the successes and efforts of the many hard-working people who have served the credit union and its members over the years."
