The Beginning of a New Era at NCCU

Walter Marx- CEO of Northern Colorado Credit UnionGREELEY, Colorado – We are grateful for the time, effort and hard work that Walter Marx has put in, as the CEO of Northern Colorado Credit Union; he has decided to step down and start a new chapter in his life. Walt served as CEO for 16 years and with his leadership he transformed, reorganized and enhanced Northern Colorado Credit Union into the premier financial institution it is today.

“For the past 16 years, I have enjoyed working with our members and volunteers to make Northern Colorado Credit Union the great place it is,” said Marx. “It’s time for a change for me and I’m looking forward to what awaits me in 2016.” 

Marx plans to work with his brother at a ranch in early 2016.  “I’m looking forward to a change of pace. It will be an adventure, that’s for sure,” said Marx. “I will miss the camaraderie that comes from working in the credit union industry. It has truly been a pleasure to be a part of such a great industry where the focus is on helping people reach their financial goals and ultimately helping them achieve their dreams. The relationships I’ve made over the years are priceless and I am so thankful for the opportunities I’ve had as well.”

NCCU will miss Walt. His bright and full of life attitude will be hard to replace. NCCU is looking forward to welcoming our new CEO to the team at the end of February. We are prepared for this transitional period and are ready to implement the new ideas that will come with a new leader. As far as the credit union goes, NCCU will still be the same, friendly organization that everyone is used to.

“We’re going to miss the leadership and strength of Walt,” said Mike Thacker, current Board Chairman at NCCU. “He has provided the direction we’ve needed to move our Credit Union into a new and exciting future. We wish him all the best on his new adventure.”


Month of Giving

Northern Colorado Credit Union is all about helping our local community. That’s why when we took part in Colorado Gives Day; we could not help but make it into Colorado Gives Month! This has truly been a month of giving for NCCU and we could not do it without the support of our members.  At NCCU we are committed to being community-minded and we will continue to support the many organizations that help make Greeley and Weld County a great place to call home.  

Weld Food Bank Volunteering

We love charities like the Weld Food Bank that give back so much to our community. NCCU decided to not just support the Weld Food Bank with just a monetary donation, but with our own time as well. We chose two dates for the NCCU team to come in and help out with the daily operations of the company.

Gifts for Toys ForTots

Every Christmas there are many children throughout the country who do not know the joy of receiving a gift from Santa. At both of our branches we are encouraging our members to be Santa’s little helpers with a donation to Toys For Tots. NCCU has already made our own personal donations with some gifts under the tree, but we encourage other members of our community to partake in some Holiday giving as well. All you have to do is to drop off a new unwrapped toy at either branch.

NCCU Gives Day

There are so many wonderful charities that make our community a successful one.  We wanted to support those charities to ensure that they are able to continue on doing what they do. On December 11th we loaded up our van with all sorts of goodies for the staff and donated $2,000 to four different Weld County charities such as Habitat for Humanity, The Greeley Dream Team, United Way of Weld County, and Meals on Wheels.

Fraud Alert: How to Keep Your Accounts Safe

Scam artists are rampant and are always looking for new ways to get hold of your money. A recent scam going around the Weld County community is a phone call from someone claiming to be from Publishers Clearing House about winning millions of dollars. The caller requires a money transfer of a few thousand dollars for tax purposes in order to get the millions. The money is sent off to a stranger and no money is ever sent to the "winning" recipient.

A scam like this is designed to con individuals out of their money, and once that money is sent off it is almost impossible to get that money back. Other types of scams require an individual to deposit a check that is usually within the $1,000 to $3,000 range. The check's recipient is then required to transfer a sum of the money to a "third party" for various reasons (to pay for airfare, pay for an item, for taxes, etc.). The remaining funds are supposed to be for the individual, but the check is fraudulant, which results in the individual losing thousands of dollars. These scams are quite common, but with a little education they are easily avoidable.

Here are a few tips to keep you and those you care about safe from these types of scams

  • Don’t give out personal information about yourself to someone you don’t know
  • Never send money to someone you don’t know through money transfer services or online
  • Do not deposit checks from someone you don’t know (many fraudulent checks look legitimate)
  • Shred documents containing personal information (watch for our "Shred Fest" days)
  • Frequently check account activity to catch any odd charges (NCCU offers free online banking)
  • If you are unsure about a situation, do research. A legitimate company or representative will understand
  • If you beleive you have been involved with a scam, contact your credit union and local law enforcement as soon as possible

If you believe you have been involved in a scam, contact your bank and local law enforcement as soon as possible.
