If we don't know an answer, we'll find it. We do our homework so we can be prepared to adapt to any situation. Passing the buck isn't an option.
We're committed to helping you each and every day. We listen with the goal of guiding you to new and unexpected possibilities.
Explore the timeline of un-banking.
On February 23, 1935, 196 employees of Shell Petroleum Corporation and Shell Pipe Line Corporation, joined together with $5 each to establish Shell Employees Federal Credit Union. The employees contributed a total of $980 in assets since deposits were limited to $200, and loans to $50.
Shell Employees Federal Credit Union relocates our headquarters to Houston.
Mr. William Henry Oatis, former CEO and Board Member, retires after 31 years of service. Angela McCathran accepts the position of CEO/President of Shell Employees Federal Credit Union on March 2001.
Shell Employees Federal Credit Union changes our name to People’s Trust Federal Credit Union and expands our membership to the City of Houston.
By expanding our products and services to the City of Houston, we have considerably grown our membership and asset size – we’ve come a long way since $50 loan limits.
In 2016, People's Trust was recognized by the Credit Union National Association for providing over $4.2 million in direct financial benefits to our nearly 30,000 (at that time) members. That equates to approximately savings of $272 per member household and $823 for loyal, high-use member households.
Even though we are continuously expanding, throughout history we’ve always focused on providing high-quality financial products and services. As we grow, we want to help our members do the same, which is why our goal is to help them financially prosper.
