The Westoba Credit Union is celebrating 60 years in business.
Since opening their doors in 1963 they have developed into one of Manitoba’s most successful financial institutes.
Westoba president and CEO Jim Rediger talks about what this means to the company:
"Well, we're really proud as an organization to be around for 60 years. We feel quite an accomplishment. We started way back on October 3rd of 1963. We were the Brandon Consumers Credit Union Society Limited.
And since then, we've grown to be an organization of over 200 employees, over $1.5 billion in assets and 13 locations. So we're really proud of what we've accomplished over the last 60 years."
Westoba is committed to providing support for community growth.
Since 2017 over 200,000 dollars have been given away to support 35 multi-functional projects to celebrate their 60th anniversary Westoba will be giving away 60,000 dollars this year for community projects.
Locally, Westoba will be celebrating tomorrow with refreshments being served and everyone is encouraged to stop by and share stories about financial successes.
