Grow Financial Celebrates Innovation at Synapse Summit
Innovation was integral in the foundation of Grow Financial and continues to be a fundamental tenet of our organization as we strive to serve our members in new and innovative ways. The 2019 Synapse Summit was a great opportunity for Grow to support innovation and entrepreneurship in our local Tampa Bay market and connect with our community.
The annual summit brought together the best people, ideas and technologies in Tampa and beyond for two days of learning, exploring and celebrating the possibilities of technology and innovation. Over the course of the summit, 400+ speakers and 300+ exhibitors helped position Florida as an innovation center, and we are excited to see how the concepts of our local entrepreneurs and startups will impact the future of the financial services industry.
Two of Grow’s executives took center stage and participated on panels and breakout sessions during the event.
Kent Paro, Grow’s VP of Operations, spoke on a panel discussing talent where he shared insight into the key role innovative thinking plays in Grow’s talent acquisition process. Paro also spoke from his own experience in transitioning from a distinguished career as a U.S. Navy SEAL to the private sector and shared how military skills translated to a successful career at a top company.
“I am so grateful that Grow Financial hires for talent and culture fit before skill set. They knew I had no financial industry background, but they also knew I brought other intangible skills to the table. I found my military service and experience to be a great asset in the civilian workplace.” Paro said.
Gail Wean, Executive Vice President at Grow, participated in a breakout session on designing a winning company culture. Wean stressed the importance of listening to employees in building culture and that it’s a work in progress.
“It’s really our team members that make the difference, and they’ve really defined the culture here.” Wean said.
Cultivating top talent and a winning company culture is a priority for Grow and we’ve recently been recognized as a 2018 Top 100 Workplace by Fortune Magazine and by the Tampa Bay Times as a Top Place to Work for 2018.

How to Find Your Routing & Account Numbers
When you make a payment online, by phone or on a mobile device, you may be asked for our routing number and your checking account number. Credit unions and banks use these numbers to identify accounts and make sure money gets where it’s supposed to be. You’ll also need to provide your routing and checking account numbers for:
- Direct deposits
- Electronic checks
- Military allotments
- Wire transfers
Where to Find Your Routing & Checking Account Numbers
Your personal checks include both our routing number and your account number, as shown on the Grow check example below.
Don’t have a Grow check? No worries.
Visit any Grow store and ask for a Direct Deposit Form. It lists both your routing number and checking account number.
Making a Loan Payment
When it comes to making payments, we try to make it as painless as possible to pay your loan every month. We have several different ways to pay, including convenient online options.
You have two ways to pay online by transferring funds from another bank or credit union.
- Grow Online Banking (Preferred payment method for any loan)
This is the simplest way to pay your loan. You can make one-time payments or set up automatic recurring payments in Grow Online Banking. Once you log in, select “Transfer/Payments” from the menu. If you’re not enrolled in Grow Online Banking yet, you can set up your account in just a few minutes.
- Debit Card or ACH (Available for auto, personal loans and HELOCs)
Note: ACH and debit card payments are not available for credit cards or most mortgages, except HELOCs.
We accept ACH payments with no additional fees or Mastercard® and Visa® debit cards with a convenience fee of $4.95. To get started with an online ACH or debit card payment, select Pay Now below.
Pay by Mail
You can also pay any Grow loan by check through the mail. Please remember to include your account number and Grow loan number on the check. (For credit card payments, please do not write your 16-digit credit card number on the check, which can cause a delay in processing the payment.)
