Move seen as a positive step to enhance growth opportunities
WinSouth Credit Union has proudly served Northeast, AL since 1951. Today, they’ve expanded that legacy of service alongside Landmark Credit Union. Landmark Credit Union is now merged under WinSouth Credit Union.
“Joining forces with Landmark Credit Union is the first step in a series of strategic decisions designed to grow our credit union and better serve Northeast and Central Alabama,” said David Eubanks, President and CEO of WinSouth Credit Union. “Our team does an outstanding job serving our members and we believe that we can continue that type of service in these new locations.
All current members of Landmark Credit Union are now members of WinSouth Credit Union. Like all credit unions, WinSouth is and always will be owned by its members. Ownership is what differentiates credit unions from other types of financial institutions. WinSouth Credit Union was founded in 1951 by a group of steelworkers from Etowah County. It remains dedicated to serving the people that live, work, or worship in northeast and central Alabama.
“Our commitment to our roots is unwavering. We would not be here today without the vision and support of the community that founded our credit union,” Eubanks added. “This merger is about the potential to grow so we can provide better outreach to our community and help enrich their financial well-being.”
“It’s been my privilege to have a lifetime relationship with the fine people who comprise WinSouth Credit Union. WinSouth is not just another institution where financial transactions take place. It is a place made up of friends and neighbors willing to help and guide us during good and bad times. I can say with confidence that they will be there to help and support all of us in the years ahead.” – Gene Mitchell, WinSouth Credit Union member since 1970.
“I have been a member since 1969 and have served on both the Board of Supervisors and the Board of Directors of Landmark Credit Union. Our merger with WinSouth Credit union will allow the continuation of a 93 year legacy of strengthening and empowering the membership and employees to achieve an exceptional quality of life.”- Henry Piasky, Landmark Credit Union member since 1969
