Buckeye State Credit Union


Buckeye State Credit Union was founded in Akron, Ohio to give financial support to postal workers. From 1974 through 1999 Buckeye State Credit Union merged with nine other credit unions adding service and technology. Since then, they have tripled in size, serving the region with four branches in Akron, Alliance, Canton and Shaker Heights. Buckeye State Credit Union continues to be a progressive credit union both in operations and the lending portfolio offerings and is a sound and well-managed financial institution. The reason that people like Dave Ramsey and Whitaker-Myers Wealth Managers recommend Credit Unions Vs. banks is simple! Credit Unions are owned by their members - they are a community, not just a bottom-line profit center. You'll discover that credit unions can provide their members with lower fee's and better rates because their profits are passed along to you, the members, not shareholders, like many banks. Whitaker-Myers Wealth Managers provides investment management and retirement planning solutions to the members of Buckeye State Credit Union.

Whitaker-Myers Insurance Agency


In 1869 and 1870, two firms were founded in Wooster, Ohio - the W.G. Whitaker Agency (initially the Fullerton Agency until 1891) and the W.C. Myers Agency. Both began building solid reputations based on the trust of their clients. The Whitaker Agency and Myers Agency merged in 1970 to form what is still known today as Whitaker-Myers. Over the years, Whitaker-Myers Group has grown to become one of Ohio's outstanding, respected privately-owned independent insurance agencies. Our clients range from homeowners and small businesses to well-known area, regional and national organizations.

Wayne County Community Federal Credit Union


Wayne County Community Federal Credit Union was officially organized on June 7, 1966 as the Wayne County School Employees Federal Credit Union. On June 20, 2001, the credit union sought and was granted a Community Common Bond and then officially changed the name Wayne County Community Federal Credit Union. This change permitted person who live, work, worship or attend school in Wayne County to become members of this credit union. This opened up new opportunities, and a chance to diversify the member pool beyond the school employee base. WCCFCU has grown into an approximately $50 million-dollar (and growing) institution. As of 2016, the credit union had around 6,500 members, representing over 5,000 Wayne County households. The credit union has two offices in operation in Smithville and downtown Orrville.
