Advancial Federal Credit Union won Best Bank in the Times of Acadiana’s Best of Acadiana contest, announced at an event on June 26 at The Victorian in Broussard. This is the second year in a row for Advancial to receive that recognition.

“We are so honored to top this list,” said Brent Sheffield, President and Chief Executive Officer for Advancial. “Being recognized by the community as Best Bank is a wonderful confirmation that our personal approach and family-oriented style help make Advancial a special place both to bank and to work.”

I know Advancial is enthusiastic about Acadiana – it’s great to see that the feeling is mutual!”

Lafayette Branch Manager Connie Boudreaux is confident Advancial will continue to build on their strong reputation and relationships in the area.

Advancial Wins 2019 FEM Americas EMMA Award

Advancial Federal Credit Union was named the winner of the 2019 Banking, Tax & Financial Services Innovation of the Year award at the Forum for Expatriate Management (FEM) Americas Expatriate Management and Mobility Awards (EMMAs) on Thursday, May 23, 2019 at the Marriott City Center hotel.

 “The EMMAs are the premier Awards ceremony for Global Mobility in the Americas and across the globe, with the greatest breadth of categories for both corporate professionals and service providers,” said Claire Tennant-Scull, Global Director of Content & Marketing at FEM.

Advancial has been short-listed or named a runner-up several times in years past, but this is the first time for the organization to be recognized as the winner.

“Creative, innovative financial solutions are one of the cornerstones of our culture,” said Deborah Griesbach, Chief Marketing Officer at Advancial. “With the expat market, we recognized a group of people with a unique set of challenges that our products could solve. It has really worked out well for our organization and our expatriate members.”

The judges of the 2019 EMMAs agreed. “Advancial provides expats with badly needed services and gives genuine attention to the needs of their clients, expanding services and demonstrating real results,” said the judges, commenting on Advancial’s entry for the competition.

“EMMAs entries are rigorously judged by a team of fiercely impartial, highly experienced, senior figures in the industry, who are drawn from a range of disciplines across the Americas region and who give up their own free time to carry out a very thorough and demanding process,” continued Tennant-Scull. “So, these awards carry tremendous kudos. It’s so important to receive recognition among your peers for innovation and hard work and so I think the winners and all those on the Shortlist should feel extremely proud.”

article preview image Supervisory Committee member, Bob Deputy, retires after 15 years

After 15 years of service, Bob Deputy has retired from Advancial’s Supervisory Committee.
The Advancial Supervisory Committee is a team off five volunteers appointed by the Board of Directors and is responsible for ensuring that Advancial safeguards its assets, complies with regulatory requirements and maintains adequate systems of internal control and financial reporting. Advancial Supervisory Committee members have a long tenure, currently serving anywhere from 16 to over 20 years.
 
“What I will remember about Bob is his vigilance when it came to any monetary loss to Advancial.  His approach was if it was his personal money. I appreciated his candor and his expectations of highest standards of business practices for Advancial.” – Bob Langley, Supervisory Committee Member
 
Bob began his career serving in the military for 12 years before completing his degree in Petroleum Engineering and Geology at Texas A&M University. He went on to join the Atlantic Richfield Company in 1977 and became a member of their credit union, now known as Advancial, in 1978. His career at ARCO took him all over the world until he retired in late 1996.
 
Bob served as President of the ARCO Retirees' Club from 1999 to 2004. He began serving on Advancial’s Supervisory Committee in 2004 and has been an invaluable member for 15 years.
Advancial Ranked 21st Medium-Sized Company for 2019 Best Companies to Work for in Texas
Advancial Federal Credit Union ranked 21st in the Medium-Sized Companies category for the 2019 Best Companies to Work for in Texas. The awards program was created in 2006 and is a project of Texas Monthly, the Texas Association of Business (TAB), Texas SHRM and Best Companies Group.

 We’re proud to be recognized as a Best Company to Work for in Texas for the ninth consecutive year,” said Brent Sheffield, Advancial’s President and CEO. “It’s a testament to our outstanding employees and the positive culture we build together every day.

Advancial first landed on the Best Companies to Work for in Texas list in 2011 and has made it every year thereafter. In order to maintain its place as one of the best places to work in the state, Advancial offers uncommonly rich benefits to retain its employees and to attract new talent: a vacation home in Florida that employees can use for free with a second vacation home in the works, an 8% 401K contribution with no matching required, a robust health, dental, and vision plan, and much more. They even offer and subsidize pet insurance for their employees’ furry family members.
 

 
Advancial’s final 2019 ranking was announced at the Texas Association of Business (TAB) Best Companies to Work for in Texas Awards Dinner and Celebration on March 28 at the Hilton, Downtown Austin.

“This really is a unique place to work,” said Olivia Thurmond, VP of Human Resources, who joined the Advancial team in November of 2018. “Advancial’s history on the Best Companies to Work for in Texas list was definitely a factor in my decision to join the company” she said. “While many companies look for ways to cut benefits to save money, Advancial is always looking for new ways to make our benefits even better. I’m confident we’ll be on this list for many years to come.” Thurmond joined Advancial with 27 years of experience in Human Resources after relocating to Texas from Seattle.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Companies to Work for in Texas. The first part, worth approximately 25% of the evaluation, consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, systems, philosophies, practices, and demographics. The remaining 75% of the evaluation consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings.

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 more than 80,000 members worldwide and has assets of approximately $1.6 billion.
