ING Direct's 10 Years Of History

Sunday, September 5, 2010 - 7:15 AMING DIRECT - Details
ING Direct has been around for 10 years. It's probably the most successful pure internet bank in the nation. This article reviewed the history of ING Direct which has its headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware. Here are some interesting excerpts:
Since 2000, the Wilmington staff has grown from a few dozen to 1,160 today, and the force is 2,235 nationwide.

By 2002, ING was growing by a million customers a year.

in the first half of 2010, the trademark "Electric Orange" high-yield checking account doubled business over the same period in 2009.

ING was the first Internet banking I used.  Oh, I miss the days when they were paying me enough interest on a savings account to cover my cable TV bill.  No more, but they still pay way more interest than the Mega Banks.
