SMITHFIELD – Navigant Credit Union opened two new branches, one in the Riverside section of East Providence and one in Warren, after the successful completion of its merger with Columbus Credit Union, according to a company press release.
The two new branches strengthen Navigant’s network of 11 existing branch offices in Northern Rhode Island and the East Bay.
“Navigant Credit Union aims to provide its members with services to meet all their financial needs and this merger allows us to bring our unique brand of customer service and community support to more consumers in the East Bay,” Navigant Credit Union President Gary Furtado said. “We’re excited to become part of two thriving neighborhoods and to serve the needs of our current and future members in Warren and Riverside.”
Navigant Credit Union retained all Columbus Credit Union employees in the merge.
The $1.3 billion Navigant Credit Union has served the Blackstone Valley area for 97 years, since it became the first credit union in the state in 1915.
