Purchased in October 2011, the new building represents an exciting growth stage for Qside FCU. “Envisioned nearly ten years ago, the purchase is a highly-anticipated, strategic milestone that will allow us to expand into new communities,” explains Mark Johnson, Chief Executive Officer. “In addition to serving as our headquarters and main branch for years to come, the new facility will also provide us with a base to build from for future expansion, while reducing costs in the long run.”
Residents alike have also expressed excitement about Qside FCU’s new presence in the community. “The exterior renovations we began in 2012 have really sparked an interest from the community,” says Johnson. “Many long-term residents have been asking about the project, as
it’s positioned on the highly-visible corner of Jamaica Avenue and Hollis Court Boulevard, and they appreciate Qside FCU making a positive contribution to the aesthetic of the Jamaica Avenue commercial district.”
“With numerous banks and check cashing centers located throughout Queens Village, Qside FCU will be a financial institution where your money makes a better living. We offer free checking accounts without minimum balance or direct deposit requirements,” states Monica Reid, Chief Operations Officer. “In fact, our free checking accounts actually pay interest and rewards points. Our credit card, loan and other deposit products also offer similar advantages”. These days, you just don’t find that anywhere else.
