Alaska USA Federal Credit Union Officially Merges with Global Credit Union

This week, Alaska USA Federal Credit Union, based in Anchorage, Alaska, and Global Credit Union, based in Spokane, Washington, officially merged. Global will now operate as “Global Credit Union, a Division of Alaska USA Federal Credit Union.”

Under the merger, the current President and CEO of Alaska USA, Geoff Lundfelt, will remain president and CEO of the combined organization. Current President and CEO of Global, Jack Fallis, will become regional president of the Pacific Northwest and International markets for Alaska USA. All employees of Global are now employees of Alaska USA and several members of Global’s Board of Directors will continue to serve as volunteer officials of a regional advisory committee.

“As this merger becomes official, our members will continue to receive the products and services they have come to rely on and will continue to see us in the community, engaging and interacting, giving back to those we serve,” said Fallis. “It also becomes even more apparent that by becoming one entity, we are able to offer our employees opportunities they would not otherwise have.”

Although the merger is legally completed on August 1, operations for both organizations will not change where member service is concerned. Global members will continue to access their account information using Global products and services, including visiting Global branches. In fact, there will be no adjustments for members of either organization until the full system conversion in early 2023.

“With shared values, and a commitment to our communities, it is with great excitement that we merge into one organization,” said Lundfelt. “We welcome the employees and volunteers of Global and look forward to next year when we truly become one.”
