Open to public members, this longtime credit union for Shell employees features a personalized experience
A new branch of People’s Trust Credit Union is now open in The Energy Corridor District for public membership.
People’s Trust – a longtime credit union for Shell employees – is offering a personalized experience in its new, 5,100-square-foot facility at 1805 Eldridge Parkway, south of Briar Forest, according to Angela S. McCathran, president and CEO of People’s Trust.
The West Houston branch, one of three, was relocated from Town and Country Village.
“We invested in an extensive study of where our members are, where they prefer to interact with us, and where we could most effectively build a branch on our own land rather than lease,” explains McCathran, who has led the credit union since 2001.
Inside, customers won’t find standard teller counters. Instead, the People’s Trust Energy Corridor location features dialog towers with cash dispensing machines for a more intimate, personalized financial experience.
People’s Trust also features two ATMs, a drive-thru and a community room that affiliated community groups can use at no charge. The credit union also plans to hold educational finance seminars there.
“We couldn’t be more excited for People’s Trust to expand their retail presence on the west side of Houston,” says Jeff Ensweller, vice president of LEVEL5, the consulting and facilities development firm on the project. “The credit union’s focus on delivering exceptional service resulted in a custom-tailored facility to best serve the community. We look forward to hearing member success stories in the years to come.”
Now open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday thru Friday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays, the new People’s Trust branch is planning a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony and grand opening celebration for sometime in January. Its drive-thru opens at 8 a.m.
People’s Trust, formerly named Shell Employees Federal Credit Union, is a full-service financial co-op. According to the credit union, People’s Trust has returned profits to members in the form of higher dividends on savings, lower loan rates and reduced fees.
