DUNEDIN, Fla. – Achieva Credit Union has announced that its previously announced plan to acquire Tampa-based Coast 2 Coast Financial Credit Union will not be moving forward.
A tentative agreement for a merger with Coast 2 Coast was announced in November 2020. As conversations continued, though, the Tampa Bay-based credit unions decided not to pursue a merger.
Achieva, whose acquisition history includes three mergers in the last 10 years, maintains its focus on pursuing opportunities for strategic growth. As part of that approach, Achieva continues to plan for growth in Hillsborough County, where it is pursuing potential branch locations.
Achieva Credit Union was founded in 1937 in Pinellas County. Today, it is rated a Superior 5-Star credit union by Bauer Financial and has more than $2 billion in assets and 22 branches serving more than 165,000 members. Anyone who lives or works in Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Hendry, Hernando, Highlands, Hillsborough, Lee, Manatee, Monroe, Pasco, Pinellas, and Sarasota Counties, or whose family member has an Achieva Credit Union account can bank with Achieva.
