Metro Honored with Silver Recognition by Banker and Tradesman's Best of 2014 Readers Poll

Chelsea, MA (October 14, 2014) – Metro Credit Union, the Commonwealth’s largest state-chartered credit union, is pleased to announce that it has been named toBanker & Tradesman’s “Best of 2014 Readers Poll.” Listed under the publication’s Banking category for Credit Unions, Metro ranked number two with a “Silver” recognition for the second year in a row. 

Readers cast their votes for the best providers of services and goods in the banking and real estate industries. 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.

Robert Cashman, President and CEO commented, “Receiving this recognition for the second year in a row is exciting. As a credit union, it is important that Metro continues to offer our members products and services that are affordable and flexible.” Cashman also added, “Our employees’ ability to understand specific member situations and provide the best fit solutions creates the best of both worlds.  That being member convenience and a personal touch that only a credit union can deliver on.”

The “Best of 2014” appeared in the October 2014 edition of Banker & Tradesman, a top real estate trade magazine. Metro Credit Union made its debut on the Best of 2013 Readers Poll with silver recognition.
