Ohio CU opens new location after tornado destruction
PERRYSBURG, Ohio (7/30/10)--Less than two months after a tornado destroyed its Millbury, Ohio-based office, Woodco FCU is up and running in its new Perrysburg location as of July 19. “The new place is very nice, much nicer than before,” Juanita Zunk, Woodco CEO, told News Now. “We miss the old place and the people there. It will take some time getting used to the new location. It’s a very positive move for the credit union. We’re more centrally located in Wood County now, so that’s a positive thing.” A June 6 tornado destroyed Lake High School in Millbury, southeast of Toledo, which housed the credit union. The credit union, led by Zunk, immediately activated its disaster recovery plan and was up and running within days in temporary space at CanDo CU, three miles away in Walbridge (eLumination Newsletter Jul 28). Back-office operations were set up in CanDo CU’s conference room, and front-line services operated out of a vacant position on the teller line and dedicated drive-thru lane. Several area credit unions and the Ohio Credit Union Foundation stepped in to offer assistance in the aftermath of the disaster. Woodco FCU has $9 million in assets.
