HUME Building Society has revealed new uniforms as the organisation prepares to change to a bank.

ZigZag Apparel and Albury fashion house Zeinert & Zeinert worked with Hume on the new uniforms.

Hume general manager sales and marketing Melissa Sweetland said the contract had been worth close to $100,000.

“Where possible we use local suppliers,” she said.

“We’re lucky to have two great organisations here that could help us.

“Working with local providers is fantastic.”

Hume will become a bank on July 1.

The changes are part of a branding campaign as the business moves into new markets.

“The title of a bank really helps us explain to people what we do,” Ms Sweetland said.

“All our signage needs to change along with our stationery, website and documents used behind the scene.

“We’re not changing our corporate structure; we’ll still be owned by our customers.

“As we expand into Wangaratta and Wagga it’s really important we explain to people what we do.”

Hume staff will not wear the uniforms until the organisation starts trading as a bank.

ZigZag Apparel chief executive Daryl Barr said the work had been rewarding.

“We have really enjoyed working with Hume and to have something that is unique to them in the marketplace is a great win for us all,” he said.

The organisation employs about 100 uniformed staff members.

Ms Sweetland said staff had welcomed the changes.
