In order to better serve members on Oshkosh’s growing west side, Verve, a Credit Union, will begin construction of a new branch at 1065 N Washburn st. in spring 2018, with opening scheduled for late fall 2018.

The new branch will be located in a high-traffic commercial area in Oshkosh, with nearby businesses including Festival Foods, Menards, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Kwik Trip, Panera Bread and others.

“Verve’s decision to build our fourth Oshkosh branch on Washburn Avenue aligns with our goal to continue improving services for our members and communities,” Kevin Ralofsky, president and chief executive officer at Verve, said. “We serve members in a multitude of ways and while more and more members are banking digitally with us we understand the importance of a physical branch for more consultative services. Adding a Verve branch to this area of Oshkosh will make accessing our services even easier for our members.”

The new full-service branch on Washburn Avenue will feature a drive-up as well as innovative banking technology including Expert Nearby, a video conferencing service allowing members to connect with Verve team members at other locations.

Verve will announce details regarding the new branch such as opening date, location hours and employment opportunities as plans develop.

Founded in 1937, Verve, a Credit Union, is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative with more than $800 million in assets and serving over 56,000 members at 15 locations. Membership is open to anyone who lives, works or worships in 23 counties throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota and to employees of Kimberly-Clark Corp., Fox River Paper Co., the medical services industry and the immediate family of any current member.
