Michigan Business Connection (MBC), a Michigan Credit Union Service Organization (CUSO) primarily serving Michigan credit unions and their members with commercial lending support services, celebrated their 15-year anniversary recently. To celebrate the special occasion, MBC held a reception and open house for its credit union partners and employees.

Bill Beardsley, President/CEO said, “A lot has changed in 15 years.  Big banks have gotten bigger while the number of community banks have declined substantially. In Michigan, credit unions have stepped up and filled a community-based financing void.  We’ve been a proud contributor to that result.” Beardsley goes onto say, “We started MBC with one employee, five credit unions and no loan portfolio and now have more than forty team members, more than two dozen credit unions and nearly $800 Million in an entirely Michigan based portfolio. MBC truly values the relationships we have built over the past 15 years. Our team, our credit unions, our partners, friends and the greater business community have each played a role in allowing us to reach this milestone.”
