Industry News


June 30, 2013 – Today Commercial Alliance completed the acquisition of Cencorp Business Solutions, a Michigan MBL CUSO which services over 100 credit unions in the State of Michigan. The new name of the CUSO will be Commercial Business Solutions (CBS). CBS will complete its move to our Troy headquarters in the next forty-five days and will be housed just down the hall from Commercial Alliance. We will continue to operate CBS as a separate entity, continuing to focus on their core strengths of underwriting, documentation, training, and consulting. Combined, Commercial Alliance and CBS serve over 125 credit unions, underwrite $150 million in new loans annually, and service one quarter of a billion dollars in member business loans. Future plans will be shared as they unfold. Welcome CBS, Dutch, Dean, Brian, Tom, and Terry.
