PORTLAND, Ore., May 9, 2018—OnPoint Community Credit Union will open a new, full-service Portland branch on May 30 to better serve its growing membership and expand its presence in the market. The Southeast Hawthorne/34th Avenue branch is a premier location in the heart of a walkable, lively and eclectic neighborhood.
“Like OnPoint, the Hawthorne district is a Portland original – with a spirit and sensibility that is distinct and authentic,” said OnPoint CEO Rob Stuart. “We are thrilled to become a part of this thriving community and look forward to serving the neighborhood as a trusted financial partner.”
The Hawthorne branch, set to open on Wednesday, May 30, is located at 3404 SE Hawthorne Boulevard in Portland, a few short blocks from the iconic Bagdad Theatre and Pub and Powell’s Books. The branch will host a Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, June 9, from 9 am to 1 pm. Neighborhood residents and businesses are invited to visit the new branch for refreshments and giveaways and to meet the branch staff.
The new team will be led by branch manager John Palmeri and assistant branch manager Connie Fontaine. Palmeri previously served as the assistant branch manager at OnPoint’s 205 Place branch, and Fontaine served as a Senior Member Relationship Officer at the Lloyd Center branch. In celebration of the branch opening, Palmeri and Fontaine will present a $1,000 contribution to a non-profit organization serving southeast Portland.
“OnPoint honors its commitment to community and member service in every neighborhood we serve,” said Palmeri. “We can’t wait to open our doors on Hawthorne and look forward to participating in neighborhood life as an employer, community partner, and financial services provider.”
