Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union Celebrates 60 Years of Service


Pensacola, Fla. (April 9, 2014) – Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union celebrates 60 years of service. For the past 60 years, Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union has been providing Service That Soars Above to members who have placed their financial trust in our financial institution. The founding members met to sign the credit union’s original charter on April 9, 1954.

Over the years, Gulf Winds continues to grow, starting as Chemstrand Credit Union, then Monsanto Credit Union, and now even stronger as Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union. Gulf Winds serves more than 50,000 members and has 11 branch locations throughout Pensacola, Gulf Breeze, Milton, Tallahassee, Crawfordville and Atmore, Ala. and Brewton, Ala.

For nearly 79 consecutive quarters, Gulf Winds has been recognized as a 5-Star Superior-Rated credit union by BAUER FINANCIAL, Inc., the nation’s leading bank and research firm. Because Gulf Winds has received this honor for nearly 20 straight years, BAUER FINANCIAL, Inc. has awarded Gulf Winds the additional honor of being a “Sustained Superiority Credit Union.” Only 10 percent of the credit union industry can claim this distinction. Gulf Winds’ solid and consistent financial performance over the years can be attributed to the strong volunteer leadership and members that call Gulf Winds their primary financial institution.

“Successful financial numbers do not tell the entire story of who we are,” said President and CEO, Chris Rutledge. “We are also proud of the Gulf Winds team. In 2013, the Pensacola News Journal awarded us as a Best of the Bay finalist for Best Credit Union and Best Financial Planning Firm (our Raymond James partnership). Also, the Independent News awarded Gulf Winds with the Best Credit Union and the Best Place to Work. We’re really proud of the team and entire organization for these accolades.”

Gulf Winds has continued to advance and has been able to help the financial stability of our members for 60 years.
