Alaska USA Federal Credit Union Relocates Operations to Glendale, Arizona

Alaska USA Federal Credit Union will open a new state-of-the-art Operations Center in Glendale, Arizona.

The two-story, 185,000 square-foot building will serve as the credit union’s new distributed operation center, supporting Alaska USA’s continued growth and investment in all the communities it serves.

According the company officials, the new Operations Center location will help further ensure that credit union members have secure, reliable access to the tools, services, and support they need to manage their financial lives from anywhere in the world.

“Glendale is an ideal place for credit union operations,” said Mike Brady, Chief Information Officer, Alaska USA. “The area doesn’t experience the kinds of operational-interrupting natural disasters that other areas are vulnerable to, and it’s also very close in proximity to our current data center.”

“The bottom line is that the Glendale location helps ensure reliability for Alaska USA members,” said Brady. “Not just in Glendale, but worldwide.”

Alaska USA will start migrating all of its operations from the Jess Ranch Operation Center in Apple Valley, California in the second quarter of 2018, and the Glendale location is expected to be fully operational later in the year.

“Every single employee from our California operations center has been offered a position in Glendale, along with relocation assistance,” said Geoff Lundfelt, President & CEO, Alaska USA.

“Our staff are the most valuable asset to Alaska USA, and we strongly believe that many employees will choose to join us at the new center. This operations center relocation does not impact the credit union’s business or branch locations in California,” Lundfelt added. “Alaska USA remains committed to being the preferred provider of consumer financial services in the Victor Valley region.”

Alaska USA anticipates relocating or hiring 136 employees to staff the Operations Center in 2018, and expects to continue to add additional jobs as the space becomes fully utilized over the years to come. The credit union operates more than 100 branches and service facilities in Alaska, Arizona, California, and Washington State.
