CEO, Alan Cortum said “When it came time to re-evaluate our core processing solution we were intrigued by the opportunity to work with a Cooperative CUSO. During our discovery phase we spoke with several CEO’s regarding CU*Northwest. Every CEO we spoke with had nothing but positive comments about the service and support they receive as clients and owners of CU*Northwest. As a smaller credit union with three branches we needed a partner who can offer us flexibility and we believe we have found that partner with CU*Northwest.”

Greg Smith, CEO of CU*Northwest, stated “It is exciting for us to have another California credit union joining us as we continue to grow our client base there. Like credit unions, it’s a cooperative thing – a fundamental piece to our value.”
