FCI and FMFC Press Release

Farm Credit Financial Partners, Inc. (FPI) is pleased to announce the onboarding of two new members to the FPI Family, Farm Credit Illinois and Fresno Madera Farm Credit. Months of collaborative efforts culminated in the successful conversion of Farm Credit Illinois joining FPI on August 20, 2018, followed by Fresno Madera Farm Credit joining FPI on October 9, 2018. Both events showcased FPI’s ability to execute large complex conversions and deliver the most transformational technology solutions in the Farm Credit System.

Following the completion of onboarding activities, Farm Credit Illinois President & CEO, Tom Tracy, recapped their onboarding experience. “Farm Credit Illinois is very pleased with the commitment from FPI to our successful onboarding and the ongoing support post conversion!” Tracy continued to summarize their decision to join FPI, “This decision for Farm Credit Illinois is a long term strategic commitment not to a particular technology but to a collaboration of like-minded partners within the Farm Credit System, centered on a fantastic group of technology professionals that unites us across all disciplines within our Association.”

Onboarding experiences at Fresno Madera Farm Credit were similar, with Keith Hesterberg, CEO, stating, “FPI is a leading technology provider in the Farm Credit System; they design and provide technology with a mind for the Farmers and Ranchers that we proudly serve. The customer experience is certainly an important part of serving the membership but we know there is more to it in today’s environment – it is about safeguarding the information they provide, and making sure we can create the right experience for our membership well into the future.  FPI is a technology leader in the Farm Credit System, and our partnership with them increases our confidence that we can deliver on our responsibilities to our membership of today, and the next generation.”

Howard Bruck, President and CEO of FPI added that “performing a complete technology platform conversion for an institution over a weekend with all functions running on Monday morning is a tremendous accomplishment.  Doing it successfully twice in 2 months is a testament to the skill and dedication of the FPI team and our great new partners at Farm Credit Illinois and Fresno Madera Farm Credit.”

FPI welcomes our new partners to the FPI Family and look forward to years of successful partnership.
