USF president Judy Genshaft and USF Federal Credit Union CEO Rick Skaggs toss the first dirt at the future site of the New Tampa branch of the credit union.
On August 29, USF president and New Tampa resident Judy Genshaft, USF FCU President and CEO Rick Skaggs, Tampa City Council chair (and USF grad) Mike Suarez and a number of other school dignitaries stuck ceremonial shovels into a pile of dirt during a ground-breaking ceremony at the northwest corner of Bruce B. Downs (BBD) and Imperial Oak Blvd., in the Trout Creek area near Winn-Dixie. "It's the first off-campus building of the credit union,'' said Skaggs. The impetus for acquiring the land to build the two-story, 12,300-sq.-ft. credit union, in fact, is due in part to the success of that New Tampa office, Skaggs said, as well as the knowledge that this area is home to many USF grads and employees. "We have a lot of faculty and staff that live in this area as well, and going back from here to the university might as well be like going to St. Petersburg, so this is going to be a nice hub for us,'' Skaggs said. He noted that there have been numerous studies done on the membership base located in New Tampa, and those studies also reveal that many graduates settle in the area after attending USF and would like to remain members. There will be a large community room available for meetings and functions, Skaggs said, equipped with a large TV for presentations and multi-media capabilities. There also will be drive-through tellers and "universal service reps," who according to Skaggs, are like bank tellers of the future. Since many patrons use electronic banking and don't bother with the brick and mortar building for simple tasks like deposits and withdrawals anymore, universal service reps will be equipped to handle not only traditional teller duties, but also all of the other services offered by the credit union. "The concept is like an Apple Store,'' Skaggs said. "In the Marshall Center, the design we put in there has been very well-received. Skaggs said USF FCU has more than $500 million in assets, 135 employees and lends in excess of $100 million per year.

USF FCU president and chief executive officer (CEO) Richard Skaggs had a vision to expand the credit union into the New Tampa area.
He saw the demand and sought to serve those members who already lived further north of the USF campus.
We strive to ensure our members are continuously satisfied with our services and the 'Rewards for U' program was created just for them," said Richard Skaggs, CEO and President of USF FCU.
