“Serving the community in a central location like Fred Meyer provides our members with seamless, one-stop access to our financial expertise and services,” said Rob Stuart, President and Chief Executive Officer, OnPoint Community Credit Union. “When developing a plan to achieve financial wellness, there is no better way than to meet with a financial advisor in-person, and our new branches allow more members that option.
