Laurel, MD – Tower Federal Credit Union has been named “Member of the Year” by one of the region’s largest economic development associations, the BWI Business Partnership. The Partnership recognized the financial institution’s deep roots in the community and its contributions to the area economy. Tower joins such institutions as the University of Maryland, Baltimore-Washington Medical Center, the USO and Southwest Airlines in receiving the award.
“When selecting the Member of the Year, we look for a company that has made an impact on this region; a company that has been a dedicated member of the BWI Business Partnership and a company who has helped move the Baltimore/Washington region forward,” said Greg Pecoraro, Executive Director of the Partnership. “Tower Federal Credit Union more than checks the box on all three counts.”
Tower “consistently gets involved in different events in the community, which strengthens the bonds among businesses,” said BWI membership specialist Jackie Weisman. “This has the effect of changing the business community for the better.”
Tower’s purpose “is to help our members become more financially secure through education, consultative services and communication,” said Gail Sanders, Tower’s Business Development Manager. “We work hard—using competitive products and services—to fulfill our mission of being the best credit union in the region.”
Tower is also deeply involved in supporting a variety of good causes in the community, Sanders said, especially the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, a participating hospital in the Children’s Miracle
Network. Since 1998, Tower has raised more than $715,000 for the Children’s Center.
