April of 2013 marks the accomplishment of two important milestones for First Financial of Maryland Federal Credit Union- their 60th Anniversary and reaching $1 billion in total assets. First Financial FCU President/CEO Rob Windsor attributes the credit union's success to sound business practices, a strong membership base and staying true to their mission of delivering the highest quality financial products and services to their members.
Windsor noted, 'In today's competitive, financial marketplace, we are especially proud to have reached the $1 billion mark as we celebrate 60 years of service to our membership. Without the leadership of our Board of Directors, a dedicated professional staff and most importantly, a loyal membership, neither of these accomplishments could have been possible.'
During the Credit Union's 60 years of service, a few notable accomplishments include recognition as the '1987 Outstanding Credit Union of the Year' by the National Association of Federal Credit Unions, development of 5 student-run high school branches of First Financial, introduction of multi-faceted online and mobile banking products and the donation of over $1 million to help children in the credit union community. Funding for First Financial's charitable endeavors is made possible through the KidsFirst Fund. Through this program a portion of member purchases made with a First Financial FCU Visa credit card is donated to help children in the Credit Union community.
