7 17 Credit Union Unveils Historical Museum, Dedicates New Financial Center

7 17 Credit Union’s Board of Directors dedicated the credit union’s new Financial Center to 7 17 CEO and President, Gary Soukenik, to honor his 40 years of service and leadership to 7 17, the broader credit union movement and the local community.

The Financial Center, which sits at the site of the credit union’s original branch location at 3181 Larchmont Ave., was created after the new Larchmont branch opened in the spring of 2019. In addition to the creation of back office space, the Financial Center houses the credit union’s safe deposit boxes and is used for meetings with credit union’s Medicare agent, mortgage consultants or meetings with a 7 17 Retirement and Investment Group representative. Safe deposit boxes can be accessed Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The location will now be known as the Gary Soukenik Financial Center.

During the dedication ceremony, the credit union also unveiled their historical museum chalk-full of facts and photographs dating back to financial institution’s beginning in 1957. The museum sits inside the Gary Soukenik Financial Center and doubles as a meeting space.

Soukenik was honored by the dedication and thanked the board for their support.

“I am humbled and overwhelmed by the gesture. Thank you to the board for bestowing me with this honor and for their unwavering support over the years.”
