Arizona State Credit Union Ranked Number One Sixth Year in a Row
Voted number one by Ranking Arizona: Best of Arizona Business Award
PHOENIX, Ariz. - For the sixth consecutive year, Arizona State Credit Union has been named the number one credit union in Arizona by Ranking Arizona: The Best of Arizona Business.
The rankings, published annually by Arizona Business Magazine, are based on the largest opinion poll in Arizona and include more than 250 business and leisure categories.
"We are honored to receive this award and be recognized by Arizona Business Magazine," said David E. Doss, President/CEO of Arizona State Credit Union. "I believe this recognition is due to our commitment to the local Arizona communities we serve, valued work ethic and exceptional member service. It is this sustainable model that is the driving force of our organization."
Voters, which include residents and business leaders throughout Arizona, participated in an online opinion poll provided by the official Ranking Arizona website. Categories are chosen by Arizona Business Magazine and are based on feedback from the state's business community regarding their interests and leisure activities.
Voters can cast their votes every 90 days for the 2013 competition, which is now underway.
Arizona State Credit Union is a financial cooperative owned and controlled by its members who live and work in Arizona. Local ownership allows the Credit Union to return earnings to members in lower loan rates and higher interest rates.
A "go-local" shift in Arizona communities focuses on such benefits and helped create the highest membership growth in October 2011 that the Credit Union has seen in more than ten years, suggesting people are finding value in local financial institutions.
