GIC’s Orlando, FL branch kicks off our BRANCH SPOTLIGHT SERIES!   Learn about the amazing employees and fascinating facts of GIC-Orlando!

• How long has the branch been there?
We’ve been in existence since 1990, but we’ve only been at our new location for just under two months.

• How many people are in the branch?
Currently, 8 as we’re short-handed, but usually 9.

• Cool fact about city?
– No official documentation exists explaining how Orlando got it’s name.
– Lake Eola, one of the 100+ lakes in the city, which is over 80ft deep is actually just a giant sink hole that collected water.
