JBS Marshalltown Partners with MEMBERS1st Community Credit Union to Open Full-Service Branch for JBS Employees
JBS USA and MEMBERS1st Community Credit Union in Marshalltown are excited to announce the opening of a new MEMBERS1st branch office located inside the JBS Marshalltown production facility. A grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting were held on Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2020.
The MEMBERS1st branch at JBS offers employees the convenience of a full-service credit union within their workplace, as well as multi-lingual staff to serve JBS’s diverse population.
“We are delighted to serve JBS employees with the financial services they need in a convenient location and with multi-lingual staff. Todd Carl and his outstanding team at JBS share our passion to provide financial education and services to our community members, many of whom are looking for ways to build their lives and realize their dreams,” said Janet Borer, CEO of MEMBERS1st Community Credit Union.
“Several JBS team members are already members of MEMBERS1st Community Credit Union, so this partnership was a natural fit,” said Nicolas Aguirre, Human Resources Director, JBS Marshalltown. “Having a branch inside our plant and offering modified hours to cater to our employees’ schedules provides convenience, financial education opportunities and enhances their work-life balance, which is very important to us.”
In addition to opening a full-service branch, MEMBERS1st will host a variety of financial education seminars for JBS employees so they can enhance their knowledge and understanding of financial instruments, loans, savings, retirement investments and much more.
“As a credit union, financial education is incredibly important to us,” remarked Borer. “We don’t want to just put financial tools in the hands of our members – we aim to teach them how to use those tools to build stronger financial futures for themselves and their families.”
Long-time MEMBERS1st employee and Marshalltown resident, Yolanda Smith, moved from the South 12th Avenue MEMBERS1st branch to serve as the new MEMBERS1st Branch Manager at JBS.
“This is an exciting opportunity for me in my career, and I’m excited to learn how we can best serve the diverse community at JBS,” said Yolanda. “I look forward to working with the many members I’ve already built relationships with, and meeting and serving hundreds of new members!”
