The two winners of St. John’s Co-operative Credit Union’s (SJCCU) Come Grow With Us Savings and Shares promotion – Sir Clare Roberts and Dr. Jacqueline Quinn – were recently presented with their prizes.
Sir Clare won a Samsung J7 phone and Dr. Quinn won $200 worth of shares.
According to a release, the campaign, which was run from January to March 2019, was held to commemorate the one-year anniversary of SJCCU’s landmark opening of a branch at Mandolin Place on Friars Hill Road, on January 21, 2018.
Sir Clare, in his remarks, said this was the first time he had ever won a prize in any promotion. As a longstanding member of SJCCU, he remarked, he could attest that it was a great and growing local financial institution. He complimented staff for their display of excellent customer service and encouraged the team to continue setting the standards by which others could be judged.
Dr. Quinn related the personal story of her relationship with SJCCU, which began when a friend encouraged her to visit SJCCU. She was trying to send her son to university overseas and, as the saying goes, the rest is history. Her son benefitted from one of the education loans offered by SJCCU. Dr. Quinn also praised the staff highly for the excellent customer service she always received, especially from the new branch.
“Never settle for anything less than greatness,” she advised the SJCCU staff.
Meantime, General Manager of SJCCU Jennifer Whyte congratulated both winners as she made the presentations and thanked them for their kind words.
Ms. Whyte reminded the audience that the members of SJCCU were the owners; and because the staff are members, that also makes them owners – a fact that makes much difference in the quality of their service delivery.
She added that the Mandolin Place Branch has exceeded all expectations and reminded everyone to “keep their ears to the ground” as SJCCU will be unveiling more new and exciting services in the near future.
