Greater Texas Credit Union Dedicates New Headquarters Facility in Austin
AUSTIN, December 6, 2021 – Greater Texas Credit Union dedicated its new headquarters facility in Austin December 3 with a ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration.
The new facility allows the credit union to house all of its administrative and back-office departments in a single location to maximize internal communication and increase productivity. The headquarters staff also serve Greater Texas’ subsidiary credit union, Aggieland Credit Union, which serves the Bryan-College Station and Brazos Valley area.
The two-story building, which is across the street from the Apple campus, provides 50,575 square feet of office space. Already Greater Texas has taken advantage of that ample space to grow its contact center and add agents to better, and more quickly, serve its more than 75,000 members’ needs. The facility also allows the 80 Greater Texas employees now working there to collaborate more effectively. The new facility is a 30-year solution that can accommodate up to 250 employees as Greater Texas continues its steady growth in membership and assets.
“Our employees now enjoy a top-tier work environment in which they can thrive, connect with each other, and easily access on-site benefits,” said Howard N. Baker, President and CEO of Greater Texas Credit Union. “In addition to offices, our building features quiet rooms, a commons area, workout facilities and showers, and walkable trails right outside our door.”
Greater Texas has been ranked as a Top Workplace for many years, and its new headquarters will help the credit union attract and retain employees, said Baker. He added that with all of the administrative and back-office people in one place at last, the move has created synergy and efficiencies in member service, Greater Texas’ top priority.
For the grand opening and ribbon cutting event, the credit union hosted local officials and special guests, who toured the facility and enjoy live music and refreshments.
