PSIS Expands Community Branch Network

15 November 2004

PSIS Expands Community Branch Network

The opening of the PSIS Papanui branch in Christchurch brings the financial services co-operative’s community network to a total of 31.

In its 75-year history PSIS has been committed to a face-to-face, personal service for its customers.

To celebrate the opening of the new branch PSIS decided to give a gift to its new community. Papanui Branch Manager, Faye Foster said: “Keeping children fit and healthy is important so we have decided to donate sports equipment to four of our local schools as a nice way to mark the occasion.”

Today Faye and her team delivered more than $1100 worth of sports equipment to each of Cotswold Primary, Bishopdale Primary, Isleworth School and Harewood Primary.

Stirling Sports was able to help the branch donation go further by offering the schools a significant discount.

In welcoming the new branch, PSIS chief executive Dr Girol Karacaoglu said PSIS has undergone many changes since it was established as a co-operative organisation to help New Zealanders by providing high quality, low cost financial service. “One philosophy that has never changed is that we put people before profits. Our staff know they are there to help, not to sell.

“Our 75 years of service not only makes us one of the longest serving Kiwi financial organisations, we are also one of the few that has remained New Zealand-owned,” Dr Karacaoglu said.

Today PSIS offers full banking services to all New Zealanders, with access through Internet, telephone, and text banking as well as branches nationwide.

“PSIS has entered an exciting phase of growth and development opening new branches, and launching its new TXT Banking service. We are continuing to find new ways to make banking as accessible and convenient as possible for ordinary New Zealanders. PSIS has always been both socially progressive and at the forefront of technological advances,” Dr Karacaoglu said.

“Giving something to the community by way of celebrating our opening is in keeping with the PSIS philosophy of putting people before profits, Dr Karacaoglu said.”
