MAINE STATE CREDIT UNION AND MIDCOAST FEDERAL CREDIT UNION DISCONTINUE PLANS TO MERGE
The Boards of Directors of Maine State Credit Union (Augusta, ME) and Midcoast Federal Credit Union (Freeport, ME) have mutually agreed to discontinue their plans to merge the two credit unions.
Having recently achieved regulatory approval to advance to a vote of the members, both organizations took stock of the current merger status and agreed that proceeding was not in the best interests of the members and employees. “The challenge of bringing together two successful organizations is just that, both Credit Unions have been thriving individually and cultural alignment is difficult to achieve.” said H. Tucker Cole, Maine State President/CEO.
“All merger discussions ended amicably.” shared Joe Gervais, Midcoast FCU President/CEO. “We will continue to work collaboratively to promote the value of credit unions for Maine consumers.”
