Elan Financial Services (Elan) is partnering with Sunmark Federal Credit Union
(FCU) to provide card services to its more than 45,000 members. The
partnership will enhance benefits that members currently receive by offering a
full suite of Visa® card products with newly enhanced bonus rewards options,
including cash back, merchandise, gift certificates as well as travel rewards.

Susan Siegel, senior vice president at Sunmark believes that the Elan
partnership fits well with the credit union’s business needs and commitment to
helping members improve their financial position.  “Unlike card providers
we’ve worked with in the past, Elan’s approach to serving Sunmark members
focuses on each member and situation, making the experience more consistent
with what happens at the Credit Union. Further, Sunmark is now able to offer a
full range of ‘best-in-class’ products and rewards that addresses needs
ranging from credit building to rebuilding. We’re very pleased with the
support and commitment we get from the entire Elan team who assure that
Sunmark’s VISA program provides outstanding value to our members, while
supporting Sunmark’s relationship growth and revenue goals.”

help them support their continued efforts to offer the best products and
services,” said Matt Carpenter, senior vice president of Elan Financial
