The PACE difference: In 2004 Peter decided to make PACE Credit Union his primary financial institution for his business. He created a long term partnership with PACE over the years which has supported him to expand and improve his business. Peter is impressed with the attention he receives as a PACE member. “I truly consider PACE to be a partner in my business. There is always someone completely familiar with my situation available to assist, plus key decision makers are very accessible. I feel like I have a responsive ally with me which gives me the confidence to grow my business. You just don’t have this type of relationship at a Bank.” – Peter Atkinson
