Banking on Surrey

Westminster Savings will open a new corporate centre at Central City.

Westminster Savings Credit Union (Westminster Savings) has announced it will be opening a new corporate centre in Surrey at the Central City Office Tower at 10153 King George Blvd.

The new corporate centre, which is anticipated to open by the summer of 2016, will bring together employees currently working at the administrative building and corporate centre in New Westminster.

“We’re thrilled to bring our teams together in one centralized location,” said Gavin Toy, president and CEO of Westminster Savings. “We believe that this will help create a more integrated environment to position our organization for enhanced success and long-term growth and allow our credit union to provide even greater value for our members.

The Westminster Savings Board of Directors and Executive Leadership Team chose the Central City Office Tower, located in the commercial, cultural and social hub of Surrey, because it best met the needs of the credit union, members and employees, Toy added.

“Over the last 70 years, we have expanded and grown our reach across Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, including through a significant merger with Maple Ridge Community Credit Union in 1997,” Toy said. “As a result, we believe that Surrey provides a convenient and accessible corporate centre location from which to serve our members.”

Surrey’s Central City is a mixed-used development with an office tower, a shopping mall and a Simon Fraser University campus.

It recently won the Building Owners and Managers Association of British Columbia’s Outstanding Building of the Year Award, which recognizes the development’s industry-leading management, operations, energy efficiency, design, tenant relations and community impact.

The 560,000-square-foot office tower offers panoramic views, easy SkyTrain access, and is located in the downtown core of the fastest growing city in British Columbia.

“I am pleased to welcome the Westminster Savings team to its new Corporate Centre in the heart of Surrey’s City Centre,” said Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner.

“As the fastest-growing city in the region, I am delighted that Westminster Savings will join the growing number of key businesses and corporations that have located to Surrey.”
