Telhio Credit Union welcomes members of Columbus Metro Federal Credit Union

COLUMBUS, OH (March 25, 2021)

Telhio Credit Union announced today that it has merged with Columbus Metro Federal Credit Union. With the merger, Telhio will have approximately 75,000 members and more than $1.2 billion in assets.

“Telhio and Columbus Metro have similar values – particularly our dedication to serving our members and a shared commitment to our local community. It was a natural fit to merge with such a well-regarded credit union that has served central Ohio for so many years,” said Leslie Bumgarner, President and CEO, Telhio Credit Union.

Columbus Metro members will notice a gradual transition to Telhio’s banking system over the next year.

Telhio’s full line of financial products are currently available to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Franklin, Fairfield, Delaware, Licking, Madison, Pickaway, Union, Hamilton, Warren, Butler and Preble counties.

The merger is part of a growth strategy at Telhio to ensure that individuals in the local community who value credit union membership continue to experience the high level of member service they expect, while also ensuring that they have access to the latest technology and financial services available to banking customers.
