Members First to build new Manchester headquarters

Full-service branch, executive offices to be housed at new location

Manchester-based Members First Credit Union has announced plans to build a new 18,000-square-foot, three-story headquarters building at the corner of Elm and Salmon streets in Manchester near the Amoskeag Bridge.

In addition to a full-service branch, the new facility is being designed to house the credit union’s executive management and back-office support teams. All personnel will be relocating from the current headquarters at 44 Bridge St. in Manchester once construction is complete, officials said.

Construction is expected to begin shortly with an anticipated opening in early 2021.

Similar to its new location on Route 101 in Bedford, the branch will feature an efficient design and open-concept workstations that replace traditional teller lines.

“We are very excited to embark on this next chapter in the Members First story,” said Bruce Leighton, the credit union’s president and CEO. “Now that we’ve expanded our membership throughout the state of New Hampshire, it’s important that we maintain our commitment to provide the best possible experience for both our members and our employees. This new facility will help ensure we meet that promise well into the future.”
