CO-OP Financial Services Acquisition of SHARE SYSTEM is Now Complete


"With CO-OP Financial Services, a credit union-owned organization as the new provider of this product, our members will have continuous value," said Joseph P. Herbst, CEO of Members United. "CO-OP's retention of staff further promotes the consistency of service offered to our members, which is of the upmost importance."

CO-OP was selected by Members United as the new provider of SHARE SYSTEM because it is a credit union organization serving more than 3,200 credit unions for network, debit processing, shared branching and call center services; CO-OP is the largest credit union-owned debit processor, aggregating volume to optimize credit union value; and CO-OP already has a significant presence in Indiana.

"We look forward to continuing the SHARE SYSTEM program for clients with no material change and providing the same great local service from the SHARE SYSTEM team," said Stan Hollen, President/CEO of CO-OP Financial Services. "In addition, SHARE SYSTEM clients will be able to leverage scale economies through CO-OP as the largest credit union debit processor, and take advantage of the broad product set CO-OP can deliver."
