    Northern Credit Union renews agreement with Celero to manage and support IT operations

    August 14, 2018



    Five years ago, Northern Credit Union embarked on a digital transformation journey with a vision and commitment to be at the forefront of technology and provide an exceptional “True North Strong” experience to its members.

    To help deliver on their vision, Northern partnered with Celero in 2014 to manage the IT server infrastructure, network, end-points and day-to-day support operations and help Northern find ways to create value and efficiency in the rapidly evolving environment of financial technology.

    Northern’s blueprint for success and partnership with Celero has helped the credit union grow and become an industry leader recognized for challenging the status quo and bringing innovation to the financial services marketplace.

    Northern recently renewed its managed services agreement with Celero through to 2020 with the goal of increasing automation and improving the credit union’s operational efficiency and effectiveness by exploiting cloud capabilities to further enhance the digital and mobile experience for Northern Credit Union and its members.

    “We are extremely pleased to continue on this transformational journey with Celero,” said Tony Dunham, senior vice president, Strategy, Innovation and Operations for Northern. “We recognize the importance of technology and innovation to the future of our business, and we’re thrilled to continue having a strong partner at our side to help us focus and deliver on our digital strategy and achieve our vision of becoming a primary financial institution for members across Ontario,” said Al Suraci, president and CEO for Northern.

    “Celero is excited to continue our relationship with Northern and help them derive greater value and impact with their investments in technology,” said Tom Papagiannopoulos, senior vice president, Managed Services for Celero. “We look forward to playing a significant role ensuring technology provides Northern a compelling competitive advantage for their business.”
