The Medford, N.Y.-based credit union has 11 branches in Long Island, with investment services provided by financial advisors James Gallagher and Mark Filiberto, with office support from Corinne Giammatteo.

They offer members financial advice and wealth management services catering to short- and long-term financial goals.
“Being in the industry for 30 years, there has been so much change and we felt it was time for us to align with a platform that could create more opportunities for our members,” Gallagher said. “We could very easily see that LPL listens to their advisors. They have invested in technology and other resources that will improve how we can work with our clients. And more importantly, they have shown us how well they understand the unique needs of financial institutions. We feel that with LPL we have a great opportunity to reach more members with a deeper level of support.”
