Centric FCU History

1937 – 1991

Beginning in 1937 as Brown Paper Company Service to Mill Employees, the credit union had a small outreach but had dreams of eventually reaching more.

1992-2004

After taking the position of CEO of the credit union in 1992, Chris Craighead quickly cast vision in order to expand the credit union.

From credit union mergers to the Thomas Road center opening, the new millennium saw the credit union as an up-and-coming financial institution. With the turn of the millennium, the credit union opened two new centers, the Arkansas Road Center and a Monroe Center

2005 - 2011

The credit union’s recognition grew with Board Chairman Joe Phillips being named Director of the Year.

2008

The credit union debuted a new, more open branch design along with a new name, Centric.

2010

Shortly after the changes, in 2010, M.E. ‘Red’ Craighead and Freida Massingale were inducted into LCUL Hall of Fame.

2012 - 2014

As Centric’s reputation and membership grew, more space was needed. The need for space and growth is why, in 2013, Centric saw three new centers open: the University Center, the Mortgage Center, and the Ruston Center.

The continuous growth also resulted in the Centric being awarded the Prestigious T.H. Scott Award.

2015 – Present

Centric has continued to strive to give its members the best service possible which is why Live Better, a financial wellness community outreach program, was launched in 2016. Live Better has been successful in educating members and local businesses on important financial issues and has helped the community tremendously. The growth Centric continues to see is monumental which is why it had to expand beyond its five centers and held its grand opening of the Pecanland Center at the beginning of 2019.
