Peach State CEO travels to Scotland to celebrate Partner Credit Union’s 20th anniversary
AUGUSTA, GA (December 6, 2018) — Peach State Federal Credit Union has partnered with Glasgow’s National Health Service (NHS) Credit Union since 2016 as part of an initiative to unite and strengthen credit unions throughout the world. Peach State’s President/CEO, Marshall Boutwell, recently traveled to Glasgow, Scotland to help celebrate NHS’s 20th anniversary.
These partnerships offer credit unions from different countries the opportunity to cooperate on a variety of projects as well as exchange information, expertise and experiences that will benefit each credit union and their respective members. Peach State entered into their first international partnership with a Polish credit union in 1996. The relationship has had such a positive impact on both organizations, that the decision to partner with NHS was an easy one.
“Our partnership with NHS helps us better understand the foundational purposes of credit unions throughout the world – to serve people whose needs are not being met by traditional banking institutions,” remarked Boutwell. “I am so pleased to have been able to attend this special occasion for NHS and I look forward to sharing and celebrating their future successes.”
