7 17 Again Named to Forbes’ Best Credit Unions List

WARREN, Ohio – For the second consecutive year, 7 17 Credit Union was named to Forbes’ list of America’s Best Credit Unions in Each State.

Each year, only 3% of credit unions across the country are recognized.

The Forbes list recognizes financial institutions that have shown excellent leadership and success over the past 12 months. The list is compiled by Forbes and presented by Forbes and the national market research firm Statista Inc. 

To determine the ranking, more than 30-thousand consumers were asked to provide an overall satisfaction score for their financial institutions. Those institutions are evaluated on factors that include customer service, quality of the financial advice offered, whether fees are transparent and reasonable, ease of using the website, on-location branch services and overall level of trust the companies inspired.

“This recognition has come to mean a great deal to us,” said Gary Soukenik, 7 17 president and CEO. “Knowing that our member-owners play a direct role in determining this honor is really humbling for us. We take great pride in serving as a trusted, financial partner for our account holders as reflected in our strong, six decade history of growth.”
