New credit union branch first of its kind in Clarksville


fcfulogoThe Fort Campbell Federal Credit Union has opened a new branch on Madison Street that introduces an entirely new way to do your banking in the Clarksville and Fort Campbell areas.

The dialogue branch at 2193 Madison Street is Fort Campbell Federal’s eighth branch and one of three of its kind to be completed by the Credit Union by the end of 2010.  A branch at Tiny Town and Heritage Pointe will open by the end of 2009 and a third branch in the Dover Crossing area is in the works.

With new technology and an open floor plan, Fort Campbell Federal will bring back the basics with a greeting at the door, fresh coffee and one on one service.  The Madison branch replaces traditional teller lines with circular towers where the member and credit union employee stand side by side to complete the transaction.  “Both parties will be able to view the same computer screen, which allows the entire process to be open, creating a true dialogue between credit union staff  and members”, says Stewart Ramsey, President and CEO of Fort Campbell Federal Credit Union.
