On January 14, 2017, Horizon Community Credit Union, with two locations in Green Bay, 3139 Voyager Drive and 700 Eastman Avenue, joined Fox Communities Credit Union. This provides Horizon Community Credit Union members the added convenience of 17 additional offices from Green Bay through the Fox Valley area and to the Lakeshore in Manitowoc/Two Rivers, along with more ATM locations, and expanded products and services.
Pat Josephson, President of Horizon Community Credit Union says, “The reason Horizon approached Fox Communities was based on opportunities for both our members and the Horizon team. All staff members of Horizon are remaining. Additional jobs may be created, in the future, due to expanded hours and opportunities. The core values of each of the credit unions are very similar. Having additional offices, products, and services for our membership was vital. It is important that we continue to grow and stay competitive with the ever-changing needs of our members.”
Fox Communities Credit Union President Greg Hilbert stated, “Both credit unions share a deep understanding of our commitment to members and the communities we serve. This partnership shows how credit unions continue to work together to improve and expand product and service offerings for all members. Staff and Board Members from both credit unions are very happy to complete this partnership.”

Anyone can join if they live or work in the counties of Brown, Calumet, Door, Fond du Lac, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Oconto, Outagamie, Shawano, Sheboygan, Waupaca or Winnebago.
