LOUISVILLE - Boulder-based Elevations Credit Union has opened a new branch at 300 McCaslin Blvd. in Louisville.

The credit union is introducing its Elevations Bar, which is equipped with iPad technology that allows customers to interact with Elevations' staff. The branch also is equipped with ATMs that allow customers to conduct cash transactions, balance inquiries, funds transfers and make payments.

"We are thrilled to be in Louisville and with a new branch model we look forward to providing a great experience for the community," said Kim Felton, Elevations' vice president of branches. "Branch 2.0 utilizes a consultative approach emphasizing quality member engagement." Felton said.

The branch's staff will include wealth-management advisers, mortgage lenders and commercial loan officers.
