What is your favorite part of working with local, small businesses?

“Community! Not only do I get to meet interesting business owners every day, I am proud that we are helping our community thrive by providing banking tools that businesses can use. I love driving through my town knowing that we are actively working with many of the local businesses.”

Why should a local, small business choose a credit union over a bank?

“By choosing to bank with a local credit union like Embold, you have the advantage of partnering with people that will advocate for you. All decisions are made internally, and your calls will be answered by a real person who wants to help! We are here to support you, in the good times and bad! I will never forget how Embold jumped in to help with PPP loans as many businesses were being turned away from other institutions; we had no hesitation to provide assistance to as many people as we could.”

Jamie Clark

Business Relationship Specialist

What is your favorite part of working with local, small businesses?

“The best part about my job is getting to take the time to build relationships and get to know our business members. Learning about their business, how they started it, the ups and downs they’ve faced—there are so many amazing stories out there. Being able to be a small part of their story by helping finance equipment or a new building and then watching the business grow year after year is such a great feeling.”

Why should a local, small business choose a credit union over a bank?

“Having worked for banks previously, I can honestly say that the credit union truly believes in putting their members best interests first. This is done through local decision making, customized lending solutions, competitive products and services, and most importantly by hiring people that share the same vision.”

¿Qué es lo que más te gusta de Embold?

“You hear businesses say the word “community” a lot, but not all really mean it. Here at Embold, we not only mean it—we live it.  You can see the results with the amount of volunteer activities we do, community events we support, financial literacy classes we teach, and so much more. It’s amazing to be a part of an organization that really cares about and supports the communities we serve.”

Patricia Tardy

Business Relationship Specialist

What is your favorite part of working with local, small businesses?

“I like being able to get to know my members and build a connection with them. It’s fun to learn about the different businesses—who are they, what do they do, how did they get started, etc. Some of the time, they know they need a loan but are not sure how to get started or what type of loan they need. I enjoy figuring out what that need is and match the right product or service to their needs so they can succeed.”

Why should a local, small business choose a credit union over a bank?

“Credit unions are the BEST! Credit unions want to help their communities and their members. Since credit unions are usually smaller, we have the opportunity to get to know our members. We find out what their needs are and give them personalized services that enable them to be successful.”

¿Qué es lo que más te gusta de Embold?

“I love that Embold is very involved with our communities and with our members—this is the main priority for this credit union. Embold cares about their employees and treats everyone as an important part of the team. The management team is very open to listening to our concerns or suggestions, and looks for ways to improve not only our processes but to improve the team morale. This is the best team I have ever worked for.”
