Farmington Hills, MI – March 16, 2015 – Member Driven Technologies (MDT) announces that Perfect Circle Credit Union (PCCU) in Hagerstown, IN has signed to convert their core processing to Symitar Episys via the Member Driven Technologies (MDT) credit union-owned service organization (CUSO) solution.

Many factors led to PCCU’s choice of MDT and Symitar Episys.  Of all the systems they evaluated, MDT/Episys scored highest by far in terms of their required functionality – especially those features crucial for superior member service.  PCCU recognized the value of contracting with a CUSO versus a “for-profit” provider.  In addition, MDT was enthusiastically endorsed by the current clients PCCU consulted.


Perfect Circle Credit Union ( ) – Perfect Circle CU was chartered in 1932 when the founders of the Perfect Circle Corporation (the Teetor family) urged their employees to form the credit union to combat the economic hardships of the Great Depression.  Throughout the 1930’s and 1940’s, membership expanded as various plants came on board – and when Dana Corporation acquired Perfect Circle.  After 56 years of support from Dana, the credit union constructed its own office in Hagerstown in 1988.  Branches were then opened in Richmond (1993) and New Castle (1998).  PCCU has the distinction of being the oldest credit union in Wayne and Henry counties.  Today, PCCU has more than 7,000 members and $51 Million in assets.  Lisa Dykhoff serves as their CEO.

Member Driven Technologies – Member Driven Technologies, a Michigan-based credit union-owned service organization, was started by a group of Michigan credit unions in early 2003.  Since that time, MDT has provided cost-effective, innovative IT solutions to credit unions throughout the United States.  MDT has five offices in the U.S. – three in Michigan and two in Montana – and currently serves 151 clients in 27 states.  MDT performs processing for over 1.8 million members, with combined assets of $17.5 billion.  Larry Nichols serves as President/CEO.  For more information, visit:
