A New Name with the Same Great Service
Weber State Credit Union has changed its name to Ascent Credit Union–a new name which will help to expand and grow membership beyond the Weber County community and to bring the credit union’s extraordinary service and technologies to those living in Davis, Box Elder and Morgan Counties.
The credit union’s mission of helping members achieve their dreams is not changing, and helping the community achieve upward financial success is still the number on priority.
“We work hard to maintain the best service and support for our members, and we want to help even more people in our communities at a larger scale” said Brock Mortensen, President/CEO. “Credit unions were founded on the principle of people helping people, and that couldn’t ring more true. No matter what your goals are, whether it’s buying your first car, working on your education, finding your forever home or preparing for retirement, we are here to help you succeed.”
The Ascent Credit Union brand was built upon five values–to be helpful, approachable, dependable, trustworthy and compassionate. This foundation was born from the legacy of Weber State Credit Union and the great service members have come to know and love. The credit union will continue to support their current members with even better products and services while working to expand membership and bring great service to a broader community.
Over the years, the credit union has worked tirelessly to help strengthen the communities it services by supporting efforts to provide resources for lifelong financial learning, environmental education, recreational opportunities and economic development. The credit union’s success comes from the strength of the community and the success of its members.
Another important part of the rebrand includes the introduction of enhanced business services, such as improved business accounts to facilitate the growth of small businesses within the communities it serves. Additionally, new business loans, such as Commercial Real Estate, Equipment, and Lines of Credit are now available to business members.
The name change was not the result of a merger, and the credit union will continue to operate with the same Board of Directors and staff members. Ascent CU is currently working on opening a new branch in the Syracuse area sometime in late 2020/early 2021 and is very excited to bring their great services and technologies to the people of Davis County.
At Ascent CU, we work to empower our members to be able to manage their money easily, quickly and, most importantly, without stress.
