Promenade Branch Ribbon Cutting

ROGERS, Ark. – United Federal Credit Union (United) celebrated its expansion into northwest Arkansas with the opening of its Promenade branch in Rogers on July 26 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Although the credit union has been serving the region since 2015, this is the first free-standing United branch to open in northwest Arkansas.

“Growing in Arkansas continues to be a priority for United,” said Stephanie Riffle, United’s Market Vice President—Arkansas. “The excitement around the economic and population growth in northwest Arkansas is inspiring, and we’re happy to be a part of that momentum. The team at the Promenade branch will be focused on delivering outstanding financial services to members, building relationships and supporting the Rogers community, as well as creating experiences that show why United Federal Credit Union is a special place to bank.”

“We are so happy to have United Federal Credit Union choose the Rogers community as an expansion market,” said Raymond Burns, President and CEO for the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce. “United has a proven track record of treating its members the right way, helping small businesses grow, and volunteering with non-profit organizations that will make them a strong partner in this community for years to come.”

Amber Murphy, hired in April of this year, will serve as the Promenade branch manager. Murphy will leverage her 15 years of financial services experience to promote corporate member engagement and positive public relations. She will also be tasked with maintaining the performance of the branch, providing solutions to members, and leadership and supervision to staff.

United opened the doors to its new 3,500 square foot branch on June 17 and is currently serving members. Renovations to the branch building started in March and was managed by The Redmond Company. The Promenade branch is a full-service extension of United, offering personal and business banking services including loans, mortgages, and investment planning.
