Quest CU debuts after two Kansas CUs merge
TOPEKA, Kan. (5/25/10)--The merger of Credit Union 1 of Kansas and Credit Unions United has resulted in a new name: Quest CU. The Topeka, Kan.-based credit union’s new name encourages members and staff to “discover the possibilities,” according to co-presidents/CEOs Gary Colcher and Vickie Hurt. “We have a track record of providing friendly service, easy account access and a full array of traditional and leading-edge services. Now, as Quest CU, that’s going to continue to be a daily goal,” Hurt said. Colcher agrees. “People want their financial institution to be friendly, financially strong and safe, reliable, professional and efficient,” he said. “They also want it to stay current on new technologies, which is very important to Quest CU. There’s always more we can do; it’s a journey. I think the way to sum it up is that we’re on a quest for excellence.” The two credit unions received regulatory approval to combine in October and put it to a membership vote in early November. Quest CU will continue to serve members throughout a combined field of membership, which expands from Topeka to communities in Eastern Kansas. “We are two healthy, well-capitalized credit unions with strong membership bases, so the consolidation wasn’t required,” Hurt said. “But we believed we could do more for our members by uniting. Not only do they gain access to more branch locations, but we’ll be open more hours. And with the increased competition for business among financial institutions today, joining together will help us continue to ensure competitive rates, low fees and greater member convenience.”
