Bishopville, SC, December 01, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Elizabeth Duquette has been named branch manager at the Bishopville branch of SAFE Federal Credit Union, the largest credit union based in the Midlands.
She now leads the staff of seven at the branch, located at 596 Sumter Highway.
Duquette has 13 years of financial services experience. Before moving to South Carolina, she worked at banks in Rhode Island, managing customer support operations. She came to Bishopville with her husband, Brandon, an Airman First Class stationed at Shaw Air Force Base.
Although she has been in the branch manager position only a short time, she has already found that working at a credit union is much different from working at a bank, Duquette said.
“There is so much more community involvement here at SAFE,” she noted. “When you work at larger banks, that community presence really isn’t there. With a credit union, you are much more a part of the community. People in town know you, and you build relationships.”
