PROJECT UPDATE – ENT CREDIT UNION

ORB Management is in the process of completing work on multiple projects with Ent Credit Union, based in Colorado Springs, CO.  After assisting with the planning and implementation of over 20 small projects, Ent is now in a position to engage additional staff to manage their significant growth and expansion on the Front Range of Colorado. 

According to Ent leadership, “we wouldn’t be in this position without the expertise of ORB over the past 2 years. The goal of engaging ORB was sort of a test to see how they performed and to build relationship and trust. This was definitely accomplished on these initial projects. ORB will now be in position to be considered as Ent’s Owner’s Representative for their larger expansion projects.”  Jeff Wilkins, VP of Strategic Initiatives stated, “when we find good partners, we like to find more opportunities to work together”.
