Marcus JohnsonFreedom is pleased to announce the appointment of Marcus Johnson, as the location’s Branch Manager.  Johnson has been a Freedom team member for almost ten years, most recently serving as Branch Manager at the Swan Creek location in Havre de Grace since 2017. Johnson has earned a reputation for his warm welcomes and reliable expertise.

He brings with him from the existing Freedom team, Senior Financial Services Representative, Alexis Wyatt, who was previously a Senior Financial Services Representative at the Swan Creek Branch.

Freedom Federal Credit Union was founded in 1953 as MATCOM Federal Credit Union. The Credit Union started in Baltimore and later moved to Harford County in support of the Edgewood Arsenal, which became part of Aberdeen Proving Ground. Freedom received their Harford County community charter in 1999 and changed their name to Freedom of Maryland Federal Credit Union in 2000. In 2020, Freedom’s charter was expanded to also serve those who live, work, worship, volunteer, or have family in Baltimore County.

Local community members are encouraged to join the Credit Union on Saturday August 21st, to learn more about Freedom, take advantage of special in-person only offers, and to celebrate the new branch opening.  The grand opening celebration will feature music, food, giveaways, and family-friendly fun.
