COCC Converts Pair of Massachusetts Credit Unions

SOUTHINGTON, CT – COCC wrapped a busy 2020 welcoming a pair of Massachusetts credit unions to the COCC family. Metro Credit Union and Tremont Credit Union each converted to COCC in 2020, choosing COCC’s INSIGHT core solution, COCC’s online and mobile banking solutions, and a range of additional COCC financial technology services to deliver an unmatched experience to their employees and members.

Metro Credit Union, a $2.2 billion asset credit union based in Chelsea, MA, signed with COCC in 2019 before converting to COCC this past fall. “COCC’s strong culture and reputation for excellent customer service were key reasons for our decision,” noted Robert Cashman, President and CEO of Metro Credit Union.

Tremont Credit Union, headquartered in Milton, MA, also converted late in 2020. The $231 million asset credit union chose COCC for its innovative technology. “These enhancements will allow us to offer new services and should also improve our management team with improved data to allow us to more easily evaluate and improve our services going forward,” said George Hardiman, President and CEO at Tremont.

“It is always exciting to partner with credit unions whose focus on member service aligns so closely with our own core values,” stated Richard A. Leone, CEO at COCC. “We are excited to partner with both Metro Credit Union and Tremont Credit Union to deliver them the innovative technology they need to continue to serve their valued members and their communities.”
