Gerber FCU Adds Another Certified Financial Counselor In-House

FREMONT, Mich (8/30/2021) – Gerber Federal Credit Union (Gerber FCU) now has three in-house certified financial counselors available, located within their Fremont Corporate and Fremont Main Street branches.

Brent Deur, Assistant Vice President - Consumer Lending, recently completed the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Financial Counseling Certification Program (FiCep), to earn the designation of Certified Credit Union Financial Counselor (CCUFC). The CCUFC designation requires recertification every three years to ensure that the knowledge about financial counseling is current. Gerber FCU Senior Mortgage Manager Carla Burmeister and Fremont Main Street Branch Manager Patti Scherf were certified in October 2020.

“Our Certified Financial Counselors are trained to help our members function successfully in today’s financial marketplace.  We are very proud that Brent has invested the time and energy to maintain his certification so he can help more members,” said John P. Buckley, Jr., Gerber FCU’s President/CEO.

This is a challenging time to say the least. A great number of Michigan residents are struggling greatly and have found themselves unemployed or underemployed through this pandemic. Gerber FCU hopes local residents will take comfort knowing that we’re on their side. Certified Financial Counselors provide financial counseling that empowers members to create a budget, pay down debt and build up savings while providing support at each step.

Gerber Federal Credit Union was founded here, and we’re focused on growing here.  We have two branches located in Fremont, MI and one in Newaygo, MI.  Stop in today or visit www.gerberfcu.com/youbelong to discover the benefits of credit union membership!
