PORTLAND, Maine (9/27/11)--Synergent, a service subsidiary of the Maine Credit Union League, recently returned $750,000 to hundreds of credit unions using its products and services. The rebate amount each credit union received was based on the total volume of business the credit union conducted with Synergent from Aug. 1, 2010 through July 31, 2011. "We fully recognize the environment and challenges in which credit unions are operating within today and realize that, despite these challenges, credit unions must stay competitive and continue to invest in products and services their members expect and deserve," said John Murphy, president/CEO of Synergent and the league. "This rebate recognizes the partnerships that we have with credit unions and the integral role they have in our success," he added. Synergent, which serves primarily credit unions in New England and New York state, is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.
