CEO, Darene Follette said “When it came time to re-evaluate our core processing solution we were interested in an opportunity to work with a Cooperative CUSO.  During our discovery phase we spoke with several CEO’s regarding CU*Northwest.  Every CEO we spoke with had nothing but positive comments about the service and support they receive as clients and owners of CU*Northwest.  As a smaller credit union, WE needed a partner who could offer us flexibility, and we believe we have found that partner with CU*Northwest.”

Greg Smith, CEO of CU*Northwest, stated “It is exciting for us to have another Washington credit union joining us as we continue to grow our client base here in Washington. Like credit unions, it’s a cooperative thing – a fundamental piece to our value.”
