Arrha Credit Union Opens New Branch in Enfield
ENFIELD, Conn. — Arrha Credit Union announced the opening of a new branch at 231 Hazard Ave. in Enfield, Conn.
“We are excited to be opening a branch in Enfield and support surrounding communities as well,” said Michael Ostrowski, president and CEO. “We are a community-focused credit union and know our hometown banking style is what Enfield and surrounding communities need. In April 2019, the membership approved the expansion of our field of membership to include those who live, work, or attend school in Hartford and Tolland counties in Connecticut and immediate family of such persons.
“Arrha Credit Union will bring hometown banking back,” he continued. “This location is perfect to make that happen. Rockville Bank, also known as the Savings Bank of Rockville, once held this location, and they had the same style of hometown, superior customer-service banking. We are excited to welcome these customers back and become members, part of the Arrha financial family. This means offering home-style banking to meet the personal and business needs for families, individuals, and businesses.”
Amanda Howie, the branch manager, is sought after for her advice on vehicle lending, low-interest credit cards, free checking with convenient app downloads, online banking, and virtual deposits, Ostrowski noted.
“I am thrilled to be part of the Arrha Credit Union family and serving the Enfield community and surrounding communities,” Howie said. “I look forward to greeting, welcoming, and helping everyone, while providing hometown service along with the latest financial solutions and apps.”
Adam Baldwin is the assistant vice president, regional branch and Business Development manager. With more than eight years of banking experience, he has been recognized throughout his career as a rising star with superior service awards. He is a Rotarian, on the board of the Enfield Food Bank, and actively involved in the community.
“I am excited to be part of the Arrha Credit Union family and serve the Enfield community and its members,” Baldwin said. “I look forward to providing caring service, offering rewarding membership benefits to existing and new members, and growing these relationships.”
