The event marks completion of its merger with Northern Piedmont Federal Credit Union and expands the UVA CCU services to members in Fauquier, Culpeper and Rappahannock counties.
Chairman Jeffrey Moscicki and Warrenton Mayor Powell Duggan cut the ribbon Monday morning at 484 Blackwell Road.
“The reception we have gotten from the local community has been tremendous,” said Alison DeTuncq, credit union president and CEO. “Northern Piedmont members have been reassured by seeing the same familiar faces in the branches. And they are excited about the innovative products we have available — for example, anytime account access via our mobile app, including the ability to deposit checks electronically.”
The merger went into effect Feb. 1 and the transfer of Northern Piedmont accounts to the credit union’s system was complete April 1.
Preceding the merger with Northern Piedmont, the credit union secured the State Corporation Commission’s approval to expand its field of membership to include Culpeper, Fauquier and Rappahannock counties, which Northern Piedmont served.
“We are looking forward to contributing to these communities, focusing as Northern Piedmont did on financial literacy, and offering products and services that help everyday people realize their aspirations,” Mr. Moscicki said.
To credit union also has a branch at Vint Hill.
