CU*Answers and start-up credit union, Growing Oaks, joining forces

GRAND RAPIDS, MI (October 2, 2020) — CU*Answers, the Grand Rapids, Michigan-based cooperative CUSO, and Growing Oaks Credit Union, the Kansas City, Missouri-based start-up credit union, announced that their two cooperatives will be working together in preparation for the credit union’s launch December 2020 by deploying the CUSO’s CU*BASE® core data processing suite.

Scott Collins, EVP of National Sales and Marketplace Relationships at CU*Answers said: “We were proud that the team at Growing Oaks Credit Union chose us as their core data processing partner. Our commitment to de novo start-up efforts is a fundamental part of our business plan and something that our cooperative is very proud of.”

“The Growing Oaks Credit Union team has worked very hard to prepare to begin serving members in their community, and from our very first conversations it was clear that our two cooperatives could really do something special together,” Collins continued. “It goes without saying that we are excited about helping another credit union open its doors, and we look forward to many years as partners.”
