RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA (January 7, 2019) — Seeking to provide a better member experience and greater convenience while gaining operational efficiencies, SECU of Maryland is expanding its long-standing partnership with CO-OP Financial Services to include ATM terminal driving and ATM/debit processing.
“SECU places our members above everything else and we strive to make their experience at the ATM fast and intuitive,” said David Sweiderk, President & CEO of SECU. “We have partnered with CO-OP for many years to provide the most technologically advanced services to our members.
