Advancial Awards Dinero Teens Scholarships
June 11, 2018 Advancial Federal Credit Union continued its initiative to support education by awarding $1,000 scholarships to five Dinero Teens members. Dinero Teens is a financial services program designed for Advancial members ages 13 to 18.


“Choosing winners for our Dinero Teens Scholarships is one of the more challenging tasks we have each year,” said Deborah Griesbach, Chief Marketing Officer of Advancial. “All of the applicants are so passionate and creative, it’s tough to pick just five. We know each member has a bright future ahead and we’re proud to be a part of their journey.”


Dinero Teens were asked to choose from one of three topics. They could describe a life experience that changed their perspective, describe why they want to go on to higher education, or reflect on an experience that challenged a belief or idea of theirs. Students could submit their application through a variety of mediums, including essay, poem, PowerPoint presentation, illustration or video, among others. Five students were picked from a competitive application pool and each was awarded a $1,000 scholarship to be used for tuition, books or living expenses. Each winner also received a pre-college care package with school supplies to help them prepare for a successful college experience. The 2018 scholarship recipients include Elizabeth Seek from Katy, Texas, Grace Buckle from Missouri City, Texas, Heather Burnison from Frisco, Texas, Madison Chandler from Broussard, Louisi…

Advancial Named a Best Company to Work for in Texas
April 9, 2018 Advancial Federal Credit Union has been named 9th on the list of Best Companies to Work for in Texas in the Medium Employer Category (100-499 U.S. employees). “We’re exceptionally pleased with this year’s results in the Best Companies survey,” said Tara Weaver, Advancial’s Assistant Vice President of Human Resources. “Advancial saw a substantial jump from last year’s ranking of 29th place to this year’s ranking of 9th and we think that reflects our continuing effort to recruit the best financial services industry talent and treat them like family instead of like numbers.” The Best Companies to Work for in Texas program is comprised of two parts: the Employer Benefits & Policies Questionnaire and the Employee Engagement & Satisfaction Survey. The Employer Benefits and Policies Questionnaire captures important information regarding company policies, practices and demographics. The Employee Engagement & Satisfaction Survey asks employees to respond to more than 70 statements on a five point agreement scale. This portion also includes two open-ended questions and seven demographic questions. Advancial placed high on this list because of its nearly unmatched benefits, including excellent health insurance provided at low cost to employees and their families, an 8% 401(k) contribution and paid family leave that allows employees time off to care for children, spouses and parents. The credit union also encourages all employees to get out from behind their d…

February 20, 2018 Advancial Federal Credit Union has received numerous human resources and employee enrichment awards, including the Best Companies to Work for in Texas, Dallas/Fort Worth’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For and the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation. “Advancial has been recognized as an outstanding employer for nearly a decade and we’re extremely proud of that fact,” said Tara Weaver, Assistant Vice President of Human Resources at Advancial. “We want employees to be proud of where they work, and happy while they’re here. Advancial seeks to make all employees feel valued and respected, and we believe these awards reflect that ideology.” Advancial was honored to receive the Best Companies to Work for in Texas award for the eighth consecutive year. This prestigious award was created in 2006 by Texas Monthly to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Texas. Out of all the applications submitted, only 100 companies were awarded and recognized in the Texas Monthly special publication. The Best and Brightest programs identify, recognize and celebrate the organizations that epitomize better business, richer lives and stronger communities. Companies are assed based on categories such as communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition and more. At Advancial, employees are encouraged to continue their education and training and the company will even cover tuition costs and pay fo…

Advancial Hosts Grand Opening Event in Katy, Texas
August 8, 2017 Advancial Federal Credit Union welcomed classic car owners and enthusiasts to open its newest branch in Katy, west of Houston, this past Saturday, August 5.


“We’ve never hosted a car show at a branch, but to have one as part of a grand opening event was a perfect combination,” said Deborah Griesbach, Chief Marketing Officer at Advancial. “The Katy Cruizers were great partners. They were all so enthusiastic and supportive of the idea, and I’m thrilled that so many were able to bring their cars out for the day and show them off.”


The grand opening event was well attended; Advancial estimates nearly 250 guests came and went throughout the day, looking at cars and enjoying the hot dogs and hamburgers provided by the James Coney Island Coney Cruiser food truck. Attendees also met the Katy branch Member Service Representatives and toured the building, which includes unique light fixtures, a stone feature wall, and iPads for the youngest Advancial members.


Also attending the party was D’Art, the Money Musketeers mascot, who took photos with kids, handed out fidget spinners and replica classic cars, and posed with a beautifully restored cherry red 1957 Chevy Bel Air. Visitors entered a drawing to win a large Yeti cooler, and the first 100 guests were given an Advancial tote bag filled with giveaways.


“I’m incredibly pleased with the success of the grand opening,” said Yolanda Martinez, Branch Manager of Advancial’s Katy branch. “We opened …

Advancial Partners with Carvana for a New Car Buying Experience
June 28, 2017 Advancial Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce a partnership with Carvana to provide a simple, affordable and convenient car buying solution. “Carvana offers Advancial members a fun and innovative way to purchase a used car,” said John Kurtz, Vice President of Lending at Advancial. “Instead of spending hours at a dealership, customers can find the perfect car from the comfort of their own home. Simply apply online for financing, find a great car from Carvana’s extensive online inventory, review the terms and contract, and schedule the car for delivery.” Advancial is always seeking new and innovative lending solutions to connect with an ever-growing member base. The partnership with Carvana is a natural extension of this goal. Advancial’s auto loan program offers competitive rates, terms up to seven years and additional rate discounts for establishing auto pay. “What’s fun about Carvana is the test drive,” said Kurtz. “Instead of a typical test drive, where you’re in an unfamiliar car, maybe even on unfamiliar streets, driving with a used-car salesman chattering in your ear and putting on the high-pressure sales pitch, you get to drive the car around for seven days to see if you like it. Drive it to work, to school, to pick the kids up from baseball practice. See if it fits your lifestyle. And if it doesn’t, Carvana will take it back.” With a history dating back to 1937, Advancial provides a diversified line of advanced financial solutions to…
