The Truth Is In Here

I don’t know how many of you are X-Files fans or if you ever even heard of the show, but it was always one of my favorites. I don’t know if it was the story line, the conspiracy theories about otherworldly encounters or the characters themselves. Probably a combination of them all. The tag line of the show, “The Truth Is Out There” was all about the idea that there is more than meets the eye. That we must put aside the things we had believed in to look for a greater truth. We’re not searching for extraterrestrial life at Freedom, but we are looking for a certain truth.

Our truth is our purpose. Something we think we know, but are proving is so much more. The truth about Freedom as a financial institution is that we do loans (mortgages, business, auto, anything, etc.); we provide a variety of saving products and high earning deposit accounts; we have mobile and online banking; we have a nationwide ATM network; and so on and so on. This is obvious to anyone who bothers to look. The deeper truth, our greater purpose, is the service we provide to, and the partnerships we forge with, our members and the community. Moreover, this truth is something we should never stop pursuing.

Banking is what we do, NOT who we are. But don’t take my word for it. Talk to us, do business with us, discover your own truth and experience the Freedom difference. After all, why bank at a Bank when banking is better at Freedom.

Mike MacPherson has over 35 years of experience in the financial industry, including more than 12 years with Freedom before becoming President/CEO in 2016. Born and raised in Baltimore County, Mike is a graduate of Mt. St. Joseph High School and Towson University. Mike now resides in Harford County, which he has called home for over 30 years.

He likes to blog because it helps him connect with members on a human level. He says, “It’s not just about what products we offer; it’s about what we stand for, why people should join, and spreading the credit union message with greater reach and purpose. If we want people to understand our culture, that we are trying to be something special, we need to give them the insight from a personal viewpoint, not just as a business.” He believes passionately in our community, our employees, our mission of giving back, and providing members with financial products and services that lead to their success.
