ORNL Federal Credit Union celebrated the grand opening of its new branch in Maryville on Tuesday, Aug. 13, with members of the community and credit union representatives.

Maryville City Mayor Tom Taylor and Blount County Mayor Ed Mitchell were on hand to participate in the ribbon-cutting ceremony in conjunction with the Blount County Chamber of Commerce and Blount Partnership.

ORNL FCU has been serving the Maryville community since 1999 and with the opening of the new full-service branch, the credit union consolidated operations from the Maryville Walmart Branch allowing for greater visibility and job opportunities, the credit union said in a news release.

The new Maryville Branch embodies the brand image of ORNL FCU by providing members with convenience, full banking services, access to emerging technologies, and a “great user experience.”

“Maryville is a great market; there is significant potential for ORNL FCU to grow our membership in this area, as well as provide more services and convenient access to our members from a full-service building,” said Colin Anderson, president and CEO of ORNL FCU.

Located at 2441 U.S. Highway 411 South, the new Maryville Branch will be managed by Kayla Warren, a longtime Credit Union employee who previously managed the Maryville Walmart Branch.

The new branch will offer full teller and lending services, including business services, new accounts, deposits, withdrawals, consumer loans, mortgages and wealth management. Other features include safe-deposit boxes, which utilize biometric access, and drive-thru interactive teller machines (ITMs).
