description

In 1932, 11 El Paso civil servants pooled $5 each to form a credit union. Today GECU is the largest and one of the strongest locally-owned financial institutions in the city we call home with more than 310,000 members, 18 branches, and over $2 billion in assets.
The oddly-shaped Greater El Paso Credit Union building is difficult to get a picture of due to its location in relation to the sun, which is nearly always behind it. Several bus trips out there at various times of day finally gave me two decent snapshots.
