Westbrook, Maine, Oct. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Infinity Federal Credit Union (Westbrook, Maine) and Deere Employees Credit Union (Moline, Illinois) announce their intent to merge, subject to member and regulatory approval.
Each credit union will retain local control, including keeping their respective names, identities, and branches to continue serving local communities. Systems and services (i.e. online banking, routing numbers, etc.) will remain unchanged, reducing the impact of the change on members who will continue to bank as they are today.
“The goal is to combine resources for mutual benefits driving further growth and expansion in our communities and offering more benefits to our members.” said Infinity FCU President/CEO Elizabeth Hayes and DECU President/CEO Kurt Lewin in a joint statement.
Upon merger approval, the credit union will be headquartered in Moline and led by DECU President/CEO Kurt Lewin. Elizabeth Hayes, Infinity FCU’s President and CEO, will assume the role of Maine Market President and will lead the employees, operations, and community partnerships in Maine. The combined credit union will provide more opportunities for employee growth and professional development, with no planned reduction in employees at this time. It will represent 60,000 members and over $1.5 billion in assets.
