Xplore Federal Credit Union, rich in a more than 70-year tradition of personable banking service, continues to stay progressive in the Grater New Orleans financial institution marketplace.

With an increased portfolio of commercial banking services, an entire range of commercial lending products, and the recent hire of a commercial lending director, Xplore is well-positioned to be the local source of financing for Orleans and Jefferson Parish businesses.

“For the last two years, we have been adding to our credit union’s foundational hallmark of personable service by introducing a robust commercial department that fully meets the needs of business owners,” said Rafael Rondon, President/CEO.

With more than 15 years of leadership in the industry, Rondon was hired to lead Xplore in February 2017. Six months later, Rondon brought on Chuck Romano as director of commercial lending. Romano previously offered consulting services to more than 1,400 commercial clients for close to 30 years. “Xplore has opened the doors of tremendous flexibility for our corporate clients,” Rondon said, “We have low competitive rates, extremely flexible terms and conditions, and an experienced consultation team to help business owners better compete, thrive, and grow.”

Federally chartered in 1947, Xplore serves more than 9,000 members in the Orleans and Jefferson Parishes. Xplore offers a full gamut of consumer and business financial products. Credit cards, Checking, Savings, Mortgages, Home Equity loans, Auto loans, Boat loans, Personal loans, and e-services are all part of the extensive list of products that Xplore offers.
