HALLCO Community Credit Union Kicks Off New Year with New Name
50-Year-Old Financial Institution Rebrands as MyGeorgia Credit Union
By: MyGeorgia Credit Union
"Our communities are solidly based in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and just as we consider ourselves part of our communities --- our members consider themselves to be a connected part of the credit union," shared Lorie McGovern, Executive Vice President for the financial institution. "That is because we deal with each member individually in a friendly, personable way. It is natural for members to say this is 'my' credit union, and in turn, future generations will say the same."
Founded in 1971, HALLCO Community Credit Union evolved into a full-service financial institution offering a broad range of banking products and services with branch locations in Gainesville, Oakwood, Flowery Branch and Cleveland. Its 2020 merger with Habersham Federal Credit Union led to further growth and capacity of services, expanding its branch locations to Homer, Clayton and Clarkesville.
"This reveal has been a long time in the making and we're truly excited about all the possibilities it represents for our members," said Joe Foster, President and CEO of HALLCO Community Credit Union – now MyGeorgia Credit Union. "We're starting a new year with a new name and a new look, but our members can expect the same great service they've come to know and love over the last 50 years. While a lot may be changing – including the number of branches we're now able to offer and wider variety of communities we're now able to serve – our legacy of providing a member-first customer service experience will always stay the same. We remain committed to Helping People Afford Life™."
