CitiFinancial changing it name to OneMain Financial on Friday

PALESTINE — On Friday, the CitiFinancial office located at 2041 Crockett Palestine will change its name to OneMain Financial.

Branch Manager, Shelly Graham, indicates the name change will not impact the products and services customers have come to know and appreciate.

“We’ll continue to work with each customer, one-on-one, to find a loan option that’s right for them and be here when they need us. The new name better fits who we are and what we do,” Graham said.

OneMain Financial’s Chief Executive Officer, Mary McDowell, said, “We’re excited to open our doors (Friday) as OneMain Financial, a brand we think will really connect with consumers. We’re proud of the fact that we’re able to meet our customers where, when, and how they want to be met, right here in Palestine.”

Graham added, “it’s gratifying for me, and everyone at the branch to know we’re helping our neighbors. OneMain Financial employees include, Amanda Newman, Erin Bustamante and Emerald Matherne.”

To celebrate the new name, the OneMain Financial Branch will hold a sweepstakes throughout the month of July. Customers and members of the community may be eligible to win a Blu-ray player. In addition, an official launch celebration event will be held at 10 a.m. Friday at the Palestine branch.

“I encourage customers and members of the community to stop by the branch and say hello, enjoy some light refreshments, enter the sweepstakes and learn more about OneMain Financial,” Graham said.

The celebration event is free and open to the public.

No purchase, credit application or email address necessary to enter the drawing for the Panasonic Blu-ray player, valued at $108. OneMain Financial reserves the right to substitute a prize of at least equal value in the event of unavailability, for whatever reason, of the advertised prize.

One prize will be awarded at each OneMain Financial location.  Chances of winning depend on numbers of ballots entered. One entry ballot per person. For an entry ballot and complete details, please visit your local OneMain Financial branch.

According to a press release, OneMain Financial is the premier community lender in the U.S. With more than 1,300 locations across the country OneMain Financial has been serving communities since 1912. Additional information may be found at
