Kent County Credit Union has changed its name to Intandem Credit Union

GRAND RAPIDS, MI (July 9, 2021) — Kent County Credit Union has announced that is has changed its name to Intandem Credit Union. As part of a plan for growth and neighborhood commitment, the new name represents where the credit union is headed as an active and supportive partner in strengthening families and community.

Kent County Credit Union was established in 1956, originally as a credit union for employees of the county. In 2004, the credit union expanded its field of membership to include all those who live, work, worship, or attend post-high school institutions in Kent County.

“Over the years, our name has presented a challenge to growth,” said Barbara Page, President/CEO. “It really hit home when we attended a community event at City High/Middle School, right across the street from our main location. Several neighbors told us they thought we were part of Kent County government and didn’t think they were eligible to join. This wasn’t the first time we heard something like that, and it really made us think critically about who we are and where we are going”.

Board Chairperson Jon Denhof added, “We are proud of our heritage. Our Kent County Employee members have been a key part of our success. This name change is not about outgrowing our roots, it’s about growing them deeper into the neighborhoods we serve. The Board of Directors has been considering a name change for several years. We know we need to grow to continue creating value for our members, and after a lot of research and discussion, it was our unanimous decision that a name change is integral to that goal”.

The credit union offers a comprehensive range of financial services including credit cards, mortgages, and personal loans. Members need not worry about their accounts during this transition. Member account numbers, and the credit union routing number will stay the same. Direct deposits, payroll deduction, automatic drafts, and other ACH services will continue to function as they have in the past. Online banking, debit and credit cards, and the mobile app will still be available and function the same as before, but with a new name and design. The website will automatically redirect to the new website,

“We believe that we are stronger together,” Page said. “When we focus on strengthening the financial lives of our neighbors, the credit union also becomes stronger, and as a team, we help our neighborhoods flourish”.
