For the times of the city
PORTAGE COUNTY – According to Brett Lee, Executive Vice President of CoVantage Credit Union, “Our Board of Directors and executives believe the time has come to build a new branch in Plover to serve our growing members. Our current Stevens Point branch serves thousands of member-owners each month as more members in Portage County trust CoVantage with their deposits, loans and other financial needs. We are very grateful to provide this new location well located in the growing Plover community.
CoVantage purchased land on the corner of Post and Plover Road in the village of Plover. In late fall, construction of a new 3,000 square foot branch will begin with a modern design. This office will offer a combination of digital, self-service and personal interactions with staff to ensure members are served in an efficient and friendly manner. The new Plover branch will have staff available to assist members with auto loans, mortgages, business loans and deposit accounts. The branch will also offer interactive automated teller machines (ITMs) indoors and outdoors under a car-accessible awning to provide fast and convenient service. ITMs will allow members to interact with local cashiers live using video technology, where they will be able to perform a wide range of services such as check cashing, loan repayment, funds transfer, depositing money and obtaining money.
Lee said, “This investment continues our commitment to the members who live and work in central Wisconsin. We opened a branch in Stevens Point in 2014 and are delighted that in six years our members have grown to need a second office in Portage County. We look forward to starting to build this new facility and are grateful to our member-owners for making this opportunity possible.
Without the support of our members and the continued dependence on CoVantage for their loan and deposit services, our credit union would not be the strong financial cooperative we are today.
CoVantage Credit Union has $ 2.6 billion in assets and serves over 130,000 members across all of its locations, including branches in Rothchild, Weston, Rib Mountain and Wausau. Founded in 1953, the financial cooperative serves members living or working in 18 counties in Wisconsin and three counties in UP Michigan.
