Carisa Buffington is new to the Delta Community Credit Union retail branch in Buford, but she is not new to the role of manager, or to serving credit union members in Gwinnett County. Since joining Delta Community in 2012, she has worked at three different branch locations - all of them in Gwinnett.

“I loved working in Duluth and Suwanee, and now I’m grateful for an opportunity to get to know our members in Buford and serve their financial needs,” said Buffington.

Buffington was tapped to lead the Buford branch last month, after its former manager, Emily Browning, was transferred to a job in the Credit Union’s corporate offices.

Delta Community has about 30,000 members in Gwinnett County. More than 4,600 of them call the Buford branch, located inside the Kroger on Hamilton Mill Road, their ‘home’ bank.

“Our members here are unique,” said Buffington. “For example, we offer more boat loans here than in most other Delta Community branches,” said Buffington. “I’m excited to get to know all our members, and to continue investing in this vibrant, growing community.”
