About Us

Welcome to FAIRWINDS Credit Union, a company that was built upon the simple philosophy of “people helping people” 65 years ago. Helping our members achieve financial freedom, helping our crewmembers grow lifelong careers here, helping our local community grow and thrive. You get the idea.

We continue to be the one of the Best Companies to Work for in Florida, simply because we hire the best and most passionate talent.

 

Top 5 Reasons You Should Call Yourself a FAIRWINDS Crewmember.

1. Thanks to our crew, we’ve been named a Best Company to Work for in Florida by Florida Trend Magazine, the Best Place to Work by the Orlando Business Journal, and a Top Company for Working Families by the Orlando Sentinel.
