“Our Acadiana team has been restructured to meet Advancial’s growing presence in the Lafayette market,” said Brent Sheffield, President and CEO of Advancial. “We opened a second branch in 2012 and as our membership in Acadiana has grown, we identified a need for greater support.

Advancial is EMMAs Shortlisted Nominee for 2016

April 13, 2016

HOUSTON, TX — Advancial Federal Credit Union has been recognized as a shortlisted nominee for The Forum for Expatriate Management’s 7th Annual EMMAs (Expatriate Management and Mobility Awards). Advancial’s category in the Americas division is the “Expatriate Banking Service of the Year.”

“We’re so pleased to be shortlisted for this very prestigious category,” says Deborah Griesbach, Chief Marketing Officer at Advancial. “We’ve developed a program that makes setting up banking accounts easy for those new to the U.S. on a work-related basis. It’s a great honor to be recognized for the effort.”

Requirements to enter into the EMMAs included a 1500 word entry statement detailing why the company deserves the award and up to three supporting documents, including testimonials from clients. With over 24 categories of awards ranging from “Best Family Support Program” to “Most Effective Relocation Management Strategy,” the exclusive group of shortlisted companies is a collection of those striving to offer the best products and services to a unique group of employees. Winners will be announced on May 5, 2016 in Philadelphia.

“My representative, Katrina Fowlkes, spent a considerable amount of time explaining the different options Advancial had to offer,” said Alejandro Boldt, an employee of Sabre. “She focused on making my transition from another country to the U.S. as smooth as possible.”

One of the largest obstacles for expatriates is getting financially settled in the United States. Advancial understands this difficulty and attempts to make the financial transition easy for expatriates moving to the U.S. Over the past four years, Advancial has marketed an expatriate program that consists of many unique product offerings for this audience. Advancial is able to offer expatriates credit card limits up to $10,000, auto loans up to $50,000 and multi-million dollar mortgages, upon arrival to the U.S. A few simple documents are all that is needed from the expatriate to get started. By developing a program specifically for expatriates, Advancial is able to extend credit without a credit score, thus providing lending to an audience that needs it most.

With a history dating back to 1937, Advancial provides a diversified line of advanced financial solutions to its members.

Advancial Hosts Adoption Event and Finds Forever Homes for Lafayette Dogs

March 19, 2016

Lafayette, LA — Advancial Federal Credit Union hosted a dog adoption event at its Lafayette branch, located at 306 E Kaliste Saloom Road. Advancial partnered with multiple area animal rescue organizations, and the day’s events included a food truck, giveaways and adorable dogs.

“At Advancial, we’re committed to our communities, our members and our pets, so this event was a natural extension of that commitment,” says Deborah Griesbach, Chief Marketing Officer at Advancial. “We were thrilled to be able to work with Lafayette shelters and find forever homes for these dogs.”

Saturday’s dog adoption event was the result of a collaboration between Advancial and Lafayette-area animal shelters including Acadiana Animal Aid, Animal Rescue Foundation of Louisiana (ARF-LA) and Friends of Lafayette Animal Shelter. Camp Bow Wow participated in the day’s festivities as well, offering training tips to new pet parents, and showcasing some of their best students. The Cacklin Hens food truck was at the branch all day, serving up home style Cajun food for breakfast and lunch. Despite the grey skies and low temperatures, the day was a success, and many of the dogs in attendance should arrive at their forever homes once the applications are processed by the shelters.

A pup named Sweet Pea was the first to be adopted by Miss Lily, an elderly Lafayette resident who came hoping to find a small companion dog. Sweet Pea spent the morning cuddled in Lily’s jacket, snuggling with her new friend and staying warm from the wind. A young family with an 8 month-old daughter adopted a Shepard-mix puppy; baby and puppy seemed to be instantly in love and ready to play.

Nancy Marcantel of ARF said afterward, “We made some good contacts, the dogs had fun and we tired them out. Win-win! We appreciate Advancial’s community-minded spirit, and their dedication to the homeless pets in our area. I look forward to the next event!”

With a history dating back to 1937, Advancial provides a diversified line of advanced financial solutions to its members. Today, Advancial is a full-service financial institution that serves over 85,000 members worldwide and has assets over $1.1 billion.

It’s a great honor to be recognized for the effort.”

The Forum for Expatriate Management received over 200 entries for the 5th Annual 2014 Americas EMMAs.
