St. Canice’s CU expands its Marketing Team
Lending growth for St. Canice’s Credit Union has been incredible since the introduction of Mortgages and the Agri lending product Cultivate. The more traditional loan products have also seen growth with the competitive rates on offer growing the loan book to €106 million, the highest it has ever been and hopefully the growth trajectory continues. Members have changed their operating behaviours over the last few years, with up to 80% of the credit unions transactions now happening online. There has been huge investment in digital technology to match the behaviour and needs of members, which has helped see the increase in lending business for them. They also now have a complete current account & debt card offering provided by MasterCard® for credit unions. While the digital element will continue to evolve, there is always a need to reach communities, businesses, farmers and employees of local firms to engage with them on a personal basis, offer financial advice, look at their account or give info on specific products. As the credit union continues to grow and offer more products and services to members, the need has arisen to grow the Marketing Team by adding another Business Development Officer to the team who will cover South and West Kilkenny as well as the areas we operate in Laois. This local success story is to be celebrated and if you wish to view or share the new role here is the link to use.
