Campbell Employees Federal Credit Union
A credit union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative where membership is open to a group of people with a common bond. They are governed by an elected volunteer board of directors. Credit unions differ from banks which are owned by groups of stockholders whose goal is to earn a return on their investments. Instead, credit unions exist to serve their member-owners, the people who save and borrow there. They are able to return profits to their members in higher savings rates, lower fees for services and lower borrowing rates. Campbell Employees FCU was founded in 1937 to serve the employees of Campbell Soup Company and has since grown to $160 million in assets and 12,000 members, and it now serves a variety of employee groups. Their main office is located in Cherry Hill, and branch offices can be found at many of the plant and office locations of its sponsor companies.

1st Colonial Community Bank
Gerry Banmiller, president and CEO of 1st Colonial Community Bank, believes in self-promoting his business—but not for the reasons he believes many people in his position promote their business. He believes a lot of business owners and presidents do commercials for ego fulfillment, and some do it because they want to cut costs. He says, “I do it because I want my bank to be successful and I believe I can best describe why you should bank with 1st Colonial. I can promise you a banking experience like nowhere else. I have personally hand-picked every officer and employee primarily based on their attitude and their competence.” In fact, South Jersey Biz recently acknowledged in a reader’s poll that 1st Colonial Community Bank was rated the best community bank in southern New Jersey. Consider also that the Bauer Company, an independent financial review agency, rated 1st Colonial with four stars, which is an equivalent of ‘Excellent’ in terms of financial performance and safety.

Columbia Bank
As a true community bank, Columbia Bank prides itself on giving something back to the many towns it serves. For example, many Columbia executives regularly serve on the boards of local hospitals, schools and charities, chambers of commerce, rotary clubs and other community service organizations. The bank’s volunteer crews also regularly help local Habitat for Humanity affiliates build affordable housing in low-income areas and assist local food banks in feeding the homeless and hungry. Team Columbia also continues to make a difference in people’s lives through ongoing community outreach and Hurricane Sandy rebuilding projects. Recent endeavors include helping a select group of Middletown residents begin the rebuilding process by providing replacement home appliances; donating $22,000 to local hurricane recovery programs; collecting more than 300 shopping bags filled with food and cleaning supplies for local food banks; and sending volunteer crews to build local storm damaged homes. In recognition of their ongoing community and charitable support, Columbia received the New Jersey Bankers Association Community Service Award for two consecutive years.
