Grand Opening Event for Arizona State Credit Union’s Corporate Headquarters
Phoenix, Ariz.— Business and community leaders from across Arizona joined to celebrate the grand opening of the Corporate Headquarters of Arizona State Credit Union with an evening of guided tours and opportunities to learn more about the new facilities. Arizona State Credit Union relocated to North Phoenix last fall to a new 130,000 square-foot building currently holding nearly 200 corporate associates with room to accommodate more than 500 in future years.
Tour guides highlighted key points of interest through the four-story building including the “innovationsuite,” a brightly colored and comfortably arranged room where new ideas are strongly encouraged. The new headquarters also features the “R.C. Robertson Learning Center” which is an auditorium style meeting center for organizational and community events dedicated to Arizona State Credit Union’s retired President, R.C. “Dick” Robertson. Arizona State Credit Union now uses its space to host Arizona Credit Union League meetings and other community meetings.
In addition to the guided tours, guests were given quick fact sheets highlighting the building’s energy efficient design and associate-friendly resources including a reverse osmosis water system, reflective roofing, low-e windows, and an advanced climate control system. Wellness Rooms, Hoteling Rooms, and a Reading Room with a book exchange program also provide associates with the resources they need for a healthy and comfortable workplace.
“Guests walked away with a firm understanding of Arizona State Credit Union’s commitment to its members and associates,” said David E. Doss, President and CEO of Arizona State Credit Union. “The associate-focused, member-centered atmosphere promotes economic growth by providing great jobs for Arizonans while improving the financial services we offer.”
“By extending an ongoing invitation to our key community and business leaders, including other financial executives and state public officials, we are able cultivate productive business relationships that will make a positive difference in the communities we serve together,” said Doss.
