For their loan practices and success in 2012, four credit unions were recently recognized by CU Direct Corp., a national lending service provider.
The credit unions were the recipients of the CUSO’s Diamond awards at a May 22 recognition dinner held during CU Direct’s annual conference in Las Vegas.
In the category of business development and dealer relations, the $212 million Tucoemas Federal Credit Union in Visalia, Calif., was honored with the CU Direct Best Practice award.
The $1.6 billion GTE Financial in Tampa, Fla., also received a best practice award for its success in the category of portfolio management.
The Ontario-Calif.-based CU Direct recognized the $1 billion Harborstone Credit Union in Lakewood, Wash., with a best practice award for its success in the category of marketing to members.
The $1.3 billion TTCU, The Credit Union in Tulsa, Okla., received the CU Direct Diamond award for its continued success in advancing its lending programs and championing the importance of a credit union-owned delivery channel, the CUSO said.
“Acknowledging the accomplishments of our credit union partners is our way of saying thank you for the hard work and dedication they put into their lending programs,” said Tony Boutelle, president/CEO of CU Direct.
