Great Lakes Credit Union Launches New Business Services

Lakes Credit Union

Great Lakes Credit Union (GLCU) is excited to announce the relaunch of their Business Services. GLCU is now offering a comprehensive suite of business products and services, including new and improved Business Checking and Business Savings accounts. By relaunching and revamping the accounts, GLCU will be able to better serve its members and the local business communities.

"This is a very exciting time for GLCU," says Senior Commercial Lender Brian Gawin. "We recognize there is significant demand for products and services that directly support the business banking marketplace. However, these needs are often not adequately addressed by other financial institutions that are focused on serving bigger customers. As a community based organization, we truly value our small business relationships and we're committed to providing customized solutions or our business members."

To assist businesses with managing unexpected expenses, GLCU is now offering Microlending. This service, aimed at helping businesses in the community flourish and continue to grow, will include unsecured loans as well as auto loans for company vehicles. In addition to Microlending, GLCU will be able to provide traditional business loans as well as additional financing through our access to various SBA loan programs.

"As a credit union, we are all about people helping people - small business owners included. And as a local business ourselves, we prioritize investing in the communities we serve," says CEO Steve Bugg. "That investment keeps those communities thriving, so they remain a place that our employees and members love to call home."

To get started on Business Banking with GLCU, call 800-982-7850, or visit any GLCU branch.
