the strength of the cooperative spirit with an April 16th car sale organized by Devon Ader, group car sales manager for Enterprise Car Sales, and James Tuggle, CEO of Transtar FCU. The group closed 25 loans that day. "Even though there may have been some overlap in fields of membership, they worked as a team to market this event to their individual members through direct mail, inserts, lobby signage and even Facebook to grow their loan business," said Ader.
