Granite Starr launched to help CUs banks restore trust
HOUSTON (8/12/10)--A team of financial industry professionals has launched Granite Starr, to help credit unions and local banks develop more personal connections with consumers. Credit unions and community banks will be the “financial institutions of choice in the coming decades,” said Joe Gillen, company co-founder. Granite Starr will have a collaborative approach to support and strengthen the advantages local institutions offer over megabanks, he said. Granite Starr is based in Houston, with Gillen as chairman and Mark Collins as president/CEO. Both have worked with more than 1,000 credit unions and community banks to help them grow market share and enhance service. Community banks and credit unions “have a vested interest in the overall well-being and prosperity of their local cities and towns, and a tangible desire to see that their customers and members succeed,” Gillen said. “Granite Starr will collaborate with local banks and credit unions to enhance that commitment and build long-term relationships that benefit both the institutions and the communities they serve.”
