"We have been a partner of CO-OP Shared Branching for many years," said Mark Cummins, President/CEO of MnCUN. "By representing CO-OP's entire portfolio of carefully integrated products, we see a tremendous opportunity to help Minnesota credit unions provide better service to members, reduce service costs through volume and relationship pricing, and increase revenues."

"Through our partnership with MnCUN, we can provide more credit unions in Minnesota with the tools they need to become the primary financial institutions of their members."
