Cutler Dawson was in town Tuesday to check out the latest Navy Federal Credit Union branch. It opened in June in Gulf Breeze and is one of eight concept branches in the company.
Dawson, the president and chief executive officer of Navy Federal, is pleased with what he has seen.
“We’ve wanted a branch in Gulf Breeze for quite some time,” Dawson said. “The neat thing about the concept branch is that we can see what resonates with members and what we can add that would be helpful to them.”
The branch represents a continued sign of growth of the credit union in Florida. More than 4,500 people are employed in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties and more than 14,000 are employed by Navy Federal nationwide.
