Canvas Credit Union unveils groundbreaking new branch in Castle Rock

Credit union breaks ground on innovative new designs as part of ongoing effort to transform how their members experience financial services.

DENVER, CO (January 18, 2019) — Canvas Credit Union broke ground on a bright and sunny afternoon, Tuesday, January 15, for their first branch location in Castle Rock. A quick stroke of an oversized paint brush revealed a rendering of the new Canvas Ridge Branch, located at the Northeast corner of Founders Parkway and Colorado Highway 86.

he groundbreaking ceremony took place at noon with community onlookers watching as Canvas leaders swept giant paint brushes to reveal renderings of the new location. Melt-in-your-mouth eats were on hand from What Would Cheesus Do?, one of the many Colorado business members at Canvas. Even the latest addition to the Douglas County Sheriff’s K-9 team was on-hand for the celebration. The Canvas canine (pictured), was added to the team late last year with help from Canvas donations to the Friends of Douglas County K-9 Unit.

“We’re thrilled to expand our Canvas Family into Castle Rock,” said Todd Marksberry, Canvas Credit Union’s President and CEO. “We listen to our members, and they asked when we’d be in Castle Rock? Well, here we are, and this is just the start. Yup, we’ll be opening a second branch in Castle Rock as well!”

This groundbreaking is part of a larger transformation for the credit union. Canvas Credit Union launched in 2018 when Public Service Credit Union officially changed their name. While the name is new, the credit union has been serving Colorado communities for more than 80 years. Ready to paint a new path and shake things up, this groundbreaking is part of a far-reaching plan, as Canvas re-invents each of their 26 branches to embrace their shoulder-to-shoulder member experience.

Canvas has already shown off this new vision at their Arvada Branch during a grand reopening of the renovated location in December of 2018. The new Castle Rock location will be the first of its kind built from the ground up. According to Chris Chippindale, Chief Operating Officer at Canvas Credit Union, all their future locations will embrace a new open and welcoming vibe.

“The feel of our new branches and how we interact with our members will be like walking into a home and having a conversation with a friend,” said Chippindale, “albeit, a friend who knows a lot of about financial services and deeply cares for your well-being.”
