Credit card service provider moves to Kent

Company contracts with credit unions

A credit card service provider and processor for credit unions has moved its headquarters to Kent from Tukwila.

Member Access Processing, formerly Member Access Pacific, is in the Cascade Tower West, 20829 72nd Ave. S. Twenty-five employees moved into the new office on Sept. 4, according to a company spokesman.

“Our new name fully represents our role as the best card service provider and processor for credit unions,” said Cyndie Martini, company president and CEO, in a press release. “As consumer habits change and evolve, credit and debit cards are often the most important connection members have to their credit union. Our job is to make sure that connection is secure, easy to navigate, and a major benefit to members. We take pride in being the best partner to credit unions.”

The company creates and manages debit and credit card services including digital, mobile, ATM, prepaid-reloadable services and customized card reward programs. The firm’s clients include more than 100 credit unions in 30 states representing more than 10 million members and more than $100 billion in assets.

Member Access Processing changed its name and moved to Kent because of the company’s rapid growth, according to the press release.
