Once upon a time there was this guy, Joe Pinkerton, who got the green light from the State of Missouri to open the Kansas City National Federation of Federal Employees Credit Union (rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?).
His wife, Wyla, went from one railroad station to the next collecting the first deposits of the credit union in a shoebox.
Then there was this other guy, Clarence H. Plaskett, who was the first charter member of the credit union with a whopping $5 share deposit.
That’s when things really started to get interesting.
Fast forward to 1998, when on our 50th birthday, we changed our name to Mazuma, the Yiddish word for money. Do we even need to insert a midlife crisis joke here? Yes. At least we didn’t get a sports car and leather pants. Just kidding, we did that too.
Let’s skip ahead again, to present day, and here we are with a whole new look, feel and attitude. Not only do we have our first-ever television spot, but we’re also scheduled to move into a brand new, innovative headquarters in Overland Park, Kansas.
Yeah, we know. This sounds like a Hollywood ending. But really — wait for it — it’s just the beginning.
