Vantage West Credit Union now part of Tour de Scottsdale - Volunteer Sponsor for Tour

Vantage West Credit Union is true to its word when it comes to supporting events – it thrives in helping communities and those people in those communities.

They are one of the many sponsors for Tour de Scottsdale set for April 13.

They’ve done exactly that in Tucson and will be in the Valley, continuing to do so with the upcoming Tour de Scottsdale and the 2024 El Tour de Tucson.

We know their value – and they know ours – given they’ve been with El Tour for more than two years.

“We’re super excited,” said Rosanna Ramirez, Vantage West’s Community Impact Manager, referring to Vantage West being part of Tour de Scottsdale.

Vantage has been the volunteer sponsor, proving shirts and having a booth or two at the Expo. They’ve also had – and will have – a team of cyclists who will hit the road with more than 2,500 other cyclists in Scottsdale.

“We have a few enthusiastic cyclists in our team, so they are excited about the event,” she said.

Vantage West has been part of the Tucson and Scottsdale communities for some time, having branches in both areas. Vantage West has a branch on 32nd and Shea.

“I have a strategy where I try to look at areas  that we serve with our branch locations, and really try to embed ourselves in the community and things that have to do with we're huge on financial wellness and that contributes to health and mental and so we feel like activities like cycling, or races, outdoor activities, anything that has to do with fitness is good for the body and soul,” Ramirez said.  “And then that contributes to healthy financial wellness. They go hand in hand.”

What has impressed Vantage West is El Tour has become internationally known.

Ramirez has been so impressed with the events that this year for Scottsdale she’ll move from behind the scenes to help out at the Expo.

“I’ve heard such amazing things that I want to be part of the action,” she said. “I’m kind of jealous that way.”

She’s looking forward to being part of the Scottsdale event given she’s attended a number of events at the venue “and that area in Scottsdale is very nice.”

“I was excited for (a ride) to come north,” she said, being from the Valley originally. She works out of the Tucson area now.

“Having it so close to home (in the Valley) … I’m really excited,” she said. “I believe the lure of Scottsdale will help promote Tucson as well. And vice versa.”
