Keith Burton, President and CEO of GCS Credit Union, expresses the motivation behind acquiring the new counties, “Our communities and our membership continue to spread out as families expand and move. We wanted to be able to continue to serve them and others as we look to the future.”

GCS previously served ten counties and now serves eighteen counties in Illinois. Founded in 1941 as a source of loans and basic savings products, GCS Credit Union has always focused on the member. Through the years, that philosophy has served GCS well, helping GCS grow from a single office in?Granite?City to a full- service financial institution serving Illinois counties: Sangamon, Logan, Macon, Marion, Jefferson, Perry, Jackson, Williamson, Jersey, Macoupin, Montgomery, Madison, Bond, Clinton, St. Clair, Monroe, Washington and Randolph.
