We look forward to working with Curtis Ritterling and other members of his staff as they become a part of our team at Heritage Federal Credit Union. The combining of our products and services will be a win-win for our new and current members. We are also excited about becoming a part of the ESB communities, bringing our People Helping People philosophy to the local non-profit organizations and helping the people in those communities grow and prosper.”

Curtis Ritterling, former President and Chief Executive Officer of the Elberfeld State Bank, said: “We are all looking forward to seeing what opportunities this new relationship will bring to our existing customers and to our team. Our customers will now become Heritage members and will greatly benefit from the addition of new products and services brought about by this partnership. We will continue to have a strong commitment to our customers’ and members’ financial well-being and the communities we serve.”
