Our story

Since opening our doors in 1977 to the employees of SmithKline Corporation—now GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)—we’ve always been focused on our members and our city.

Over time, we’ve shifted and evolved, and even changed our name to better represent our outlook and identity.

Our new name is reflective of our current membership as well as our future membership. And by working hard, making friends and solving problems—we’re building a reputation of showing up, helping out and getting things done.

At Ardent, we push ourselves to deliver the kind of smart, affordable banking our members need and deserve. We don’t settle for average. And we don’t stop at not bad.

We’re always looking for ways to say yes and we never quit when there’s still work to be done.

We’re Ardent Credit Union. And here grit makes great. That’s our story. Let's hear yours.
