The credit union serves more than 61,000 members at 16 offices in West Michigan.
New space and “commitment”
The headquarters will focus on sustainability in design and wellness amenities for employees and include collaborative workstations.
“Our new headquarters brings us the space and infrastructure needed to support collaboration and teamwork,” said Kit Snyder, president and CEO, Consumers Credit Union. “It also becomes one central location for recruiting and retention of West Michigan talent.”
Snyder added that the headquarters project “underscores” the credit union’s “strong commitment to West Michigan.”
“We are very proud to build our new headquarters in Kalamazoo, where we have been for nearly 65 years,” Snyder said.
