By all accounts, Listerhill Credit Union should be having a harder time than our three other live Young & Free regions. Listerhill is approximately one-third the size of TDECU, South Carolina Federal and Servus in members and assets. The state of Alabama has the lowest Internet usage in the USA. The Muscle Shoals and Florence area of Alabama has only about 100,000 people. Yet, none of these factors has not stopped the team at Listerhill Credit Union from smashing Young & Free Alabama out of the park!
The application phase closed just over a week ago with 17 incredibly talented applicants. This is our second highest total in our five searches to date. Only South Carolina with 28 has been higher. Web traffic is on par with our other regions.
In addition to a gung-ho and professional team at Listerhill there have been a number of factors that have contributed to the success of Young & Free Alabama to date including high on-campus word-of-mouth awareness at the University of Northern Alabama, great visibility at numerous events and a very success partnership with a local radio station (listen to some great clips in the Young & Free Alabama media center).
We are now in the voting stage with three talented young men battling it out for votes and attention.
Congratulations to the Listerhill team. Your tremendous grass roots efforts are paying off! We can't wait to name the next Young & Free Spokesperson.
