Step Up To Better
For us, stepping up to better means doing better for everyone. We start with growing local economies, partnering with neighborhood organizations, and giving back to the communities that have already given us so much.
We're Excite Credit Union. A local not-for-profit, owned and operated by you, the member, the neighbor, the hard worker. We exist to give everyone the chance to build a stronger future, so together, we can build stronger communities. It's about coming together, so no one has to go at it alone.
Daniel Hasegawa is our Business Development Manager. Before Excite, Daniel held managerial and training roles at World Savings, Wachovia Bank, and Chevron Federal Credit Union - but he actually started his career as a teacher. So, while he can talk finance and make deals with the best of them, he's actually known for his warm, patient, interpersonal style. That, and his ridiculously good chocolate chip cookies he makes for the office on special occasions! When he's not at Excite, Daniel is spending time with his wife, Kristi, and two sons in the East Bay where they live. (Hopefully making cookies!)
