New Ride Shared With Consumers Family

Jerry O., Shows off His New Harley!

Who doesn’t like to show off a new ride. One of the reasons (and there are many!) that I love my work is never knowing what great story I will learn about from the people we work with every day. My email is full of stories from colleagues and members who like to share their successes. Today I received this photo from our Gull Road office featuring Jerry O., a member who just picked up his new ride! Jerry’s “Consumers Family” immediately came out to oooh and ahhh when he drove in. Now we can’t wait to see him cruise in on his new Harley. The products and services we offer are always a great feature to talk about. But it’s members like Jerry who bring the services to life. Congratulations, Jerry—keep on ridin’! Thanks, members! *APR equals Annual Percentage Rate
