BECU Rolling Out Services Aimed At Businesses Up To $10M In Sales
BECU is expanding into small business services. The $4.6-billion credit union is defining small business as those with up to $10 million in annual sales and up to 100 employees. BECU began offering small business services at two of its 20 Credit Union Express Service Center locations, with a rollout across all its branches to follow by the end of this year. The credit union plans to offer small business services at all BECU locations by the end of 2004. "This is uncharted territory for the credit union, and we want to make sure we provide the highest quality service," said Arnie Gunderson, director of small business services at BECU. "We're planning to concentrate on serving our existing members who are small business owners before making a broader announcement to the general marketplace."
