Alaska USA Selects MX For Digital Banking
SILICON SLOPES, UT and ANCHORAGE—MX, the leading digital transformation platform for banks, credit unions, fintechs, and partners, announced that Alaska USA Federal Credit Union, one of the nation’s largest credit unions, has chosen MX for its mobile banking platform to transform the digital experience for its members.
Alaska USA FCU operates seventy-four branches and service facilities in Alaska, Arizona, California, and Washington, serving more than 660,000 members worldwide. With MX, Alaska USA members will receive personal financial management through MX Pulse, data services through MX Catalyst, and deeper data insight to continually improve the credit union’s digital banking offerings to its members.
“We have been impressed with how MX Helios has boosted mobile engagement for other large credit unions,” said Geoff Lundfelt, President and Chief Executive Officer, Alaska USA Federal Credit Union. “The biggest difference we saw between the MX offering and other offerings was its integrated platform for mobile and online banking, built on clean and enhanced data that is second-to-none. That, along with our ability to get up and running so quickly were key factors in our decision to choose MX.”
“Large credit unions like Alaska USA need to derive an immense amount of meaning from their data to deliver exceptional member experiences, but they can’t do it all themselves,” said Brandon Dewitt, Cofounder and Chief Technology Officer of MX. “Being in lockstep with them and their expansive network of partners and services will enable our combined offering to give Alaska USA exceptional attention and customized service. That level of service will flow through the credit union to provide the best possible digital experience for its members, empowering their financial strength.”

The Marx Bros. Café
Jack Amon and Richard “Van” Hale opened the doors of the Marx Bros. Café on October 18, 1979; however, the two had already been partners in cuisine for some time, having created the Wednesday Night Gourmet Wine Tasting Society and Volleyball Team Which Now Meets on Sunday, a weekly evening of food and wine. It was actually the end of the weekly event that spurred the name of the restaurant: hours after its final service, Amon and Hale were hauling equipment and furnishings out of their old location and to their now-iconic building on Third Street, all while managing arguments about equipment ownership, a visit from the police, and quite a bit of wine. “If you’ve ever seen the movie ‘A Night at the Opera” starring the Marx Brothers, that’s what it was like,” Hale explains.
