Kalsee Credit Union prepares to open new location

Kalsee Credit Union’s drivethrough is nearly complete.

With much of the exterior work complete, Kalsee Credit Union is hoping to move into the building on North Main which housed a branch of PNC Bank – and housed several predecessor’s bank branches before that – by late September.

Carrie Boisonault, vice-president for marketing and business development, said the upgraded building “features an all-new drive-through canopy and state-of-the-art ATMs with a live, interactive video teller feature.” The lobby received a facelift, Boisonault said, with new flooring, equipment and teller line.

The branch manager will be a familiar face. Ryan Wagner was branch manager at the location when the last bank there closed. Wagner, the Kalsee executive added, was recruited “for his passion for the Vicksburg community.” Wagner, she said, is a village resident who serves on the board of directors of the Vicksburg Historical Society.

“Vicksburg exemplifies the Midwestern small town ideal,” said the credit union’s CEO, Matt Lahman of Schoolcraft. “The community is a great fit for the way we do business, where we get to know our members personally and invest ourselves in their financial well-being. It’s our privilege to contribute to the community’s growth and wellness.”

A previous Kalsee CEO who retired from that post is Rudy Callen, a Vicksburg resident and former Vicksburg school trustee.

The credit union’s Vicksburg branch lobby décor will include historical photographs of the building and a historical timeline.
