Capital One departs, Apple Federal Credit Union moves in

After five years at George Mason University, Capital One Bank has decided to depart.

The bank had a five-year contract with Mason, and according to ​David Atkins, director of contract management and licensing at Mason, the bank sought the break.

“Capital One’s representative shared that it was a business decision in the best interest of the bank,” Atkins said.
