Message From Charlotte Metro Credit Union

Charlotte Metro is rooted in the Carolinas. Founded in 1962 by Charlotte’s first traffic engineer, Herman J. Hoose, Charlotte Metro was originally named Charlotte City Employees Credit Union. Can you guess who joined? Charlotte city employees. In the 1970’s, Charlotte City Employees Credit Union doubled in assets to nearly $6 million. In 1983, membership was expanded from Charlotte city employees to include the Charlotte transit and local housing authority, prompting a name change to Charlotte City Credit Union. In 1984, construction of a new branch and headquarters began at 718 Central Avenue, which is still our main branch and headquarters today. To fund the building, the “Square Footer Club” was created. This program offered a high rate of return on certificates of deposit, encouraging additional memberships and deposits. This initiative kicked off our now well-known inclination toward innovation in financial product development and service delivery excellence. In 1985, membership was again expanded to include Mercy Hospital employees and, in 1989, Presbyterian Hospital. Also in 1985, Charlotte City Employees Credit Union merged with Mecklenburg County Credit Union, which added Carolinas Medical Center employees, bringing total membership to nearly 8,500. In 1986, Charlotte City Credit Union became Charlotte Metro Credit Union. We became a community chartered financial institution in 2001 and received our federal charter in December of 2008. Finally in 2015 – Charlotte Metro’s request to expand its field of membership to nine additional counties was approved. In addition to Mecklenburg, CMCU can now serve members in Union, Cabarrus, Gaston, Iredell, Rowan, Lincoln, York, Chester and Lancaster counties.
