Welcome to 2014
We hope that you enjoyed the holiday season and feel recharged for a fresh new start. We certainly are! 2013 was an exciting year for G&F Financial Group, with continued community support, the launch of Small Business Online Banking, technology improvements to the Member Hub, and the complete renovation of our Cloverdale branch. 2014 promises to be just as busy and exciting, with two new branches scheduled to open this spring on West Broadway in Vancouver and in the Willoughby area in Langley. It’s definitely a time of growth and expansion, and we couldn’t be more excited.
Best wishes for the New Year,
Co-CEOs Bill Kiss and Jeff Shewfelt
