CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich.–Central Macomb Community Credit Union has a new name effective today: FreeStar Financial Credit Union.
The $180-million CU said it is making the name change to better align with its field of membership, which now encompasses 10 counties in Southeast Michigan and all military members throughout Michigan.
“Over the past year we have interviewed our membership and the community, and researched the markets we serve to ensure the chosen name was a good fit for all,” said President and CEO Drema Isaac. “We sought to find a strong name that was non-geographically based; one that would carry us through many years to come. After a lot of deliberations, FreeStar Financial was born, with our symbol being an iconic and meaningful star. The star is a symbol of navigation and speaks to the financial guidance we provide. The star is also a salute to our military roots and for the freedom and bravery of our military members. We want our members to reach for the stars and allow us to ‘Take Your Dreams Higher.’”
The credit union was founded in 1957 on Selfridge ANGB to serve military members. It expanded its FOM in 1999 and changed its name Central Macomb Community Credit Union.
