The Vote is Official: Kearney Federal and KEE Federal will Join Together!
The vote is official. You, our owners, have voted to come together with another strong credit union, Kearney Federal. The merger will be finalized in early 2015. A new name and brand will be announced at that time. Thank you for the trust and confidence you have placed in your Board of Directors and the management of both credit unions to make this happen! We believe this move will ensure that we remain competitive, provide you with long-term value and maintain our reputation of outstanding service to you. Together we're better!
“KEE is the ideal strategic partner for Kearney Federal Credit Union,” said Dee Schriner, President, Kearney Federal Credit Union. “We share the same mission and values and the merger will assure all members have a strong and long-term cooperative to rely on for generations to come,” added Schriner.
“We believe the coming together will provide our members with expanded services, additional locations and enhanced product lines as well as the potential for growing our membership in today’s competitive marketplace,” said Cheryl Montgomery, President, KEE Federal Credit Union.
Members will still see the same familiar faces – in fact they will soon have additional staff and locations to serve their financial needs. “We welcome the knowledge and experience of the KEE folks. This is a win-win merger for all of us,” said Schriner. “The focus of our planning has been to ensure whatever we do it must be positive for our members,” added Montgomery.
Kearney Federal Credit Union was founded in 1967 on the campus of Kearney State College with fifty-five members. Today the membership has expanded to include anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Buffalo, Dawson, Hall, Kearney or Phelps counties. As a credit union we operate as a not-for-profit financial institution, completely owned by its members. We are structured for the financial benefit of our members, and dedicated to provide financial learning and service to our communities. We take great pride in knowing that each member truly owns a portion of their credit union.
KEE Federal Credit Union was granted its charter in 1975. The credit union office was originally located inside the Kearney Eaton plant and was operated by one employee. Only Eaton employees, retirees, pensioners and their families made up the membership base. Since then, KEE has expanded its charter to include Dawson County and other select employee groups within Kearney. We offer our members a wide variety of financial products and services, and pledge to keep our service as personalized as it was when we were located inside the Eaton plant! You can trust KEE Federal Credit Union to provide the safety you seek from your financial institution.
