Press Release

July 2, 2020—SELCO Community Credit Union Ranked “Best Credit Union In Oregon” By Forbes

SELCO selected from a nationwide survey of 25,000 consumers who ranked credit unions and banks based on overall satisfaction and sentiment

(EUGENE, Ore.) — SELCO Community Credit Union has been named the top credit union in Oregon by Forbes as part of the influential business publication’s 2020 list of “America’s Best Credit Unions in Each State.” The recognition is based on a survey of 25,000 consumers spread across the country who were asked for their overall recommendations and satisfaction of banks and credit unions with which they have current and former banking relationships.

Out of 5,236 U.S. credit unions, only 3.5% made the list, including just five in Oregon.

“To be recognized by Forbes as the top credit union in Oregon is a tremendous honor,” said Bob Newcomb, President & CEO of SELCO Community Credit Union. “More importantly, it is a reflection on every one of SELCO’s nearly 400 employees, who are dedicated to improving our 142,000 members’ social and economic position.”

The survey was conducted by Statista, a reputable consumer research firm. Financial institutions were scored on respondents’ overall recommendations and satisfaction, as well as five specific criteria: trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services, and financial advice. The results were then used to compile the Best Banks and Best Credit Unions lists for each state.

“We take particular pride in this recognition because it is based on unsolicited feedback about our members’ personal experience with SELCO,” said Tiffany Washington, Senior Vice President of Finance & Member Solutions. “We are deeply committed to holding the members and communities we serve at the center of everything we do, and it is rewarding and heartening to know that the incredible work of our team is so well received.”
