DNCU To Open New Office In Espanola By Late 2020



Del Norte Credit Union (DNCU), New Mexico’s hometown financial cooperative continues to grow and expand their reach with the purchase of land at 1720 N. Riverside Drive in Española. This will be the second location serving our member-owners living in Rio Arriba County and is scheduled to open late fourth quarter of 2020.

“To more fully support the Española community our volunteer board of directors and the leadership team is opening a second branch in Rio Arriba County.  This will allow us to improve the lives of more people in the northern part of the state”, said DNCU’s president/CEO, Chuck Valenti. “As a credit union that has received A+ ratings from Bauer Financial and has been named among the top credit unions in the nation by DepositAccounts.com, we are proud to increase our commitment to the Española valley.  With this second branch and our operations center here, we truly are a local financial institution.”

According to vice president of Service Delivery, Eric Baldonado, “helping members make better financial decisions is always our number one priority.” DNCU’s mission of Improving lives has cultivated a culture that is unique to the banking industry.

“As a not for profit financial cooperative we provide unbiased financial advice that is always in our members’ best interest.  We are here to uplift our communities with our services and instill what we call Del Norteño Pride throughout Northern New Mexico.”

In 2019, DNCU donated more than $21,000 to Rio Arriba County nonprofits and organizations. “We remain committed to ensuring that our community partners have the necessary funds and support to move our community forward”, says AVP of Branch Service Delivery, Jessica Ortiz. “We’re not just employees of DNCU, we are ambassadors for our mission of Improving Lives—we live it every day whether it’s inside the branch or outside in our community.”
