GREENSBORO, N.C. (8/13/12)--First Carolina Corporate CU in Greensboro, N.C., relocated Thursday to new offices roughly a mile from its previous headquarters. First Carolina said it made the move primarily because of a focus on enhancing security.
The $1.7 billion asset corporate determined that its former office space was no longer ideal and that heightened security requirements could be more efficiently addressed at a new location.
"After the North Carolina [Credit Union] League moved out of our shared facilities last year, we decided it was a good opportunity for First Carolina to reconsider our own building design," said David Brehmer, the corporate's president/CEO. "Moving to our new building allows us to fulfill our mission of providing efficient, personalized service to meet our members' needs."
Operations staff moved from the previous location June 23 and has functioned out of First Carolina's business recovery center (BRC) in a seamless transition. The move to the new headquarters was completed Thursday.
"Although our new facility wasn't ready for occupation as quickly as we had hoped, operating out of our BRC was actually a good contingency test," Brehmer said. "The move was very straightforward, and we've had no service disruptions for members."
First Carolina's new offices are at 7900 Triad Center Drive, Suite 410, Greensboro, N.C. 27409. All staff phone numbers remain the same.
