KEARNEY — Farm Credit Services of America broke ground June 17 on a retail office in Kearney. The financial cooperative will relocate its current office at 4715 Second Ave. to 4070 E. 56th St. after construction is complete, likely in fall 2020.
State Sen. John Lowe, Kearney Mayor Stan Clouse, Chamber President Derek Rusher, Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce members, and many others joined FCSAmerica, including Mark Jensen, president and CEO, at the groundbreaking. Also in attendance for FCSAmerica were Ryan Kirchhoff, regional vice president, Tami Campbell, vice president of retail operations, Marshall Nelms, vice president of related services, and employees of the Kearney office.
FCSAmerica has long served the credit and crop insurance needs of farmers and ranchers in south-central Nebraska. The new Kearney office allows FCSAmerica to continue serving producers well into the future. It offers convenient access at the intersection of 56th Street and Highway 10, integrates features that make it easier to do business with FCSAmerica and positions the cooperative to attract, retain and support a team of experts in agricultural lending.
“A new retail office is a major investment in the producers and communities we serve” Kirchhoff said. “We look forward to moving into an office that is designed to meet the growing needs of the local agricultural industry.”
Farm Credit Services of America is a customer-owned financial cooperative. With more than $29.9 billion in assets and $5.6 billion in members’ equity, FCSAmerica is one of the region’s leading providers of credit and insurance services to farmers, ranchers, agribusiness and rural residents in Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota and Wyoming.
