Members of General Electric Supervisor's Association started GESA in 1953 and it's been through a lot of changes since then. By 1959 they hired its first full time manager. By 1971 GESA had assets of $7 million and that would grow to $57 million in a decade! Many more changes would take place over the years. Now GESA plans to merge with Inspirus Credit Union out of Seattle and the combined worth of the two entities will be roughly $3.3 billion. So will the new, larger credit union be called Inspirus or GESA or something totally different. That remains to be seen. Get the full story from the Tri-Cities Area Journal of Business HERE.
