On Oct. 30, Marietta-based LGE Community Credit Union celebrated the grand opening of its new Dallas location at 18 Georgia Heritage Place.

Abraham W. Kassis, LGE board member emeritus, cut the ceremonial ribbon surrounded by LGE executive leadership and staff, and friends of LGE from the Dallas and Paulding County communities.

Guests included Dallas Mayor Boyd Austin Jr., Dallas City Manager Kendall Smith, Paulding County Board of Commissioners chairman Dave Carmichael and Paulding County Chamber of Commerce president Stacy Hamby. LGE director of Branch Services/City of Dallas Councilman Christopher Carter and LGE volunteer/Paulding County School District assistant superintendent of Operations Dr. Susan Browning were also in attendance.

The event was catered by Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q and featured entertainment from Madison James and the B98.5FM team.

LGE president and CEO Chris Leggett, LGE vice president of Marketing and Business Development Scott Brooks and Hamby also spoke at the event.

“We’ve been in Paulding County for almost 10 years already with our office over in Hiram, and we are excited to deepen our roots in the area with the opening of our Dallas location,” said Leggett. “We’re happy to bring the services of LGE Community Credit Union to the Dallas community, including our current members, new members, and future members.”

Darlene Golden, an active member of the Paulding County community, was selected as the branch manager for the new Dallas location. She was previously with Georgia Heritage Bank for 13 years and has worked in the financial services industry since 1980. She serves on the board of directors for Paulding Christmas.
