As we embark on our 60th anniversary, we recognise members like Mr Kenneth McDonell who has been a member of Community First since the beginning.
Starting with the Sydney Water Board back in 1959 at the age of 20 years old, Ken chose Community First (then the Sydney Water Board Credit Union Co-op), for his everyday banking. He has also trusted Community First with his home loan over the years and continues to remain a member today.
We’re incredibly proud to have members like Mr McDonell choose Community First and we know that he is not alone in the list of members that have continued to choose Community First for a financial relationship that has spanned decades. To show our appreciation, he was presented with a gift to commemorate his 60th anniversary as a member. He is pictured with Community First Credit Union CEO, John Tancevski.
Since 1959, Community First has focused on building financial relationships that deliver on its promise to benefit members through standards of service superior to its competitors, fairer fees and competitive interest rates on savings and loans. The intergenerational model of people helping-people has stood the test of time.
We know that choosing a financial institution is a long term decision. And we know that when it comes to helping you achieve your financial goals, there is no substitute for people helping people. In 2019, we recognised 15 staff members that bring a combined total of 195 years of experience to our members. When we couple the passion and experience of our staff, with the long term relationships built in our business, we couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve achieved together.
