Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union is proud to announce that it has brought together some of the areas leaders in the financial industry to better meet the needs of the changing Montgomery County community.

"At MAFCU, we are committed to ensuring the best service for our community. As the diversity in Montgomery County flourishes, we feel that it is our duty as a community service provider to evolve with it. By restructuring, and bringing on board such a diverse and talented leadership team we commit to providing our customers with innovative banking services that meet the needs of all of our Montgomery County neighbors," states MAFCU President, CEO, and Venezuelan-American Andrew P. Russell.
