TAMPA, Fla. (2/14/13)--Tampa, Fla.-based Grow Financial FCU has announced plans to expand into South Carolina. The $1.8 billion credit union will open three branches in Columbia, S.C., in the next two years.
Grow Financial said it will open two branches this year and one in 2014. One office will serve as a home base for Vice President of Operations in South Carolina Chase Clelland and Dealer Relationship Representative John Paul (Business Wire Feb. 12).
The Columbia branches will feature an alternative design to traditional financial-institution lobby designs, with interactive technology and contemporary colors.
Grow Financial will provide member business services in addition to personal financial services at the Columbia branches, said Jason Moss, senior vice president of delivery channels.
The credit union plans to establish 15 branches in South Carolina, eventually expanding to the Greenville and Charleston markets. Currently, it has 19 branches in Florida, with two others in development. It will also open branches in Lakeland, Fla., and Wesley Chapel, Fla., later this year.
