SAFE Federal Credit Union broke ground on its newest branch located in the Irmo community of South Carolina on June 2, 2023.

Located on Broad River Road, the approximately 2,800 square foot branch is expected to open in late 2023 and will be SAFE’s 19th location.  It will serve the communities of Irmo and Ballentine while providing added convenience to members living in and around Richland County. 

“The addition of this branch will allow SAFE to serve its growing membership in Richland County,” said Vice President of Operations, Jay Montgomery. “We’re looking forward to bringing the Family Helping Family difference to Irmo, Ballentine, and the surrounding area.” 

“There’s something special about the individualized, in-person service that a brick-and-mortar branch provides. It’s what many of our members expect and deserve,” said President and CEO Michael Baker. “We’re delighted for our Richland County members to enjoy the convenience this location in Irmo will bring.” 

In attendance were members of SAFE Federal Credit Union’s executive team including, President/CEO Michael Baker, Executive Vice President/COO Keith Troup, Executive Vice President/CAO Alan Lewis, Vice President of Operations Jay Montgomery, Vice President of Marketing Bruce Copeland, and Board Members Helga Hamlin, Debbie Jordan, and Vern Disney.  Irmo Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Kerry Powers, Town of Irmo Chief of Police Bobby Dale, and Buchanan Construction Services President Davis Buchanan were also in attendance.
