    As a preventive measure and out of an abundance of caution, Compeer Financial will move to virtual service via phone and online, temporarily closing all offices effective Wednesday, March 18.

    “We are taking this proactive step amid concerns about COVID-19, with the health and wellbeing of our clients, team members and the communities we serve as a top priority,” said President and CEO Rod Hebrink. “Compeer Financial remains open for business. Our team members are maintaining business-as-usual, working from home and utilizing technology and phone calls to serve our clients. We are committed to continuing to meet all our clients' needs despite COVID-19.”

    Offices will remain closed through Tuesday, March 31, at which point the organization will re-evaluate the situation, closely following CDC recommendations and guidelines.

    “We know that proactive and swift mitigation measures, like social distancing, are critical to control the spread of the coronavirus,” explained Hebrink. “The health and well-being of our team, clients and communities are our number one priority.”
