Metro Honored with Silver Recognition by Banker & Tradesman

CHELSEA, Mass. (October 15, 2013) – Metro Credit Union, the Commonwealth’s largest state-chartered credit union, is pleased to announce that is has been named to Banker & Tradesman’s “Best of 2013 Readers Poll." Listed under the publication’s Banking category for Credit Unions, Metro ranked number two with a “Silver” recognition. This is the first time that Metro has been named to the list.

Readers cast their votes for the best providers of services and goods in the banking and real estate professions. The poll, which is subjective, not objective, does not measure who writes the most business, who has the most revenue or the most customers, but rather measures the loyalty and satisfaction readers have with vendors. It is an opportunity for readers to speak up for those providers they believe are the best.

“This is a real honor for us,” remarked Robert Cashman, President & CEO. “Making the list for the first time is a real endorsement from the region’s banking and real estate professionals and something we value greatly.

The “Best of 2013” appeared in the October 14, 2013 edition of Banker & Tradesman, a top real estate trade magazine.
