Westminster savings to open new corporate centre in Surrey’s Central City office tower

New Westminster, B.C., October 21, 2015 - Westminster Savings Credit Union (Westminster Savings) is pleased to announce that it will be opening a new corporate centre in Surrey at the Central City Office Tower at 10153 King George Boulevard. The new corporate centre, which is anticipated to open by the summer of 2016, will bring together those employees working at our administrative building (422 Sixth Street, New Westminster) and the current corporate centre (960 Quayside Drive, New Westminster).

"We're thrilled to bring our teams together in one centralized location," says 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. After much review and analysis of potential locations, the Westminster Savings Board of Directors and Executive Leadership Team agreed that the Central City Office Tower, located in the commercial, cultural and social hub of Surrey, best met the needs of our credit union, our members and our employees."

Mr. Toy is quick to confirm that the move to Surrey will not alter the credit union's commitment to the community that has been its home for more than 70 years.

"We are very proud of our long-standing roots in the New Westminster community. We are committed to continuing to have a strong presence here and serving the needs of our members and the local community through our branch at 6th Street and 6th Avenue and through various community investment activities," says Mr. Toy. "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. As a result, we believe that Surrey provides a convenient and accessible corporate centre location from which to serve our members."

"I am pleased to welcome the Westminster Savings team to its new Corporate Centre in the heart of Surrey's City Centre," says 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."

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.
