WATKINSVILLE, GA (May 15, 2017) – Peach State FCU celebrated the official opening of their Oconee branch in Watkinsville with a ribbon cutting attended by local officials, credit union board members and local government.
“Members will find that the Oconee branch provides a unique and innovative way to bank,” said Peach State’s Senior Vice President of Branch Operations, Crystal Schmidt. “There are three state-of-the-art ATMs – one drive up and two inside – a coin counting machine, and even a coffee bar.”
The branch is staffed by three Universal Member Service Advisors who will assist members in finding the products and services to meet their individual financial needs. Schmidt continued, “While there is no traditional teller line, we believe the Universal Member Service Advisors will streamline the overall banking experience – we’ll have three staff members that are essentially tellers, Member Service Advisors and branch managers all rolled into one.”
“We have been serving the Oconee area since 2009, and we knew that a brick and mortar location would make banking more convenient for members in this area, so we’re very pleased to finally be able to open this branch of the future,” said Peach State’s President/CEO, Marshall Boutwell.
