Portsmouth, NH - At Northeast Credit Union, we're proud of our long-standing history of providing safe, high-quality financial services to our member-owners; we believe that serving our members extends to serving the communities in which we live and work. We are proud to be named the Best Credit Union in New Hampshire by Forbes. Only 2.4% of United States’ financial institutions (124 banks and 145 credit unions) received this recognition. Credit unions outpaced banks with an average score of 80 versus 75.2 for banks while Northeast Credit Union earned a score of 87.40 outperforming the nationwide average for all financial institutions.

For this study, Forbes partnered with Statista, a market research firm, to survey more than 25,000 financial institution customers. “The banks and credit unions were rated on overall recommendations and satisfaction, as well as five sub dimensions (trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services and financial advice),” Forbes said.

“We couldn’t be prouder of this well-deserved recognition for our staff; our mission is centered on delivering value to our member-owners - this is proof that we are succeeding in this commitment,” said Tim Collia, President and CEO of Northeast Credit Union. “For more than 80 years, we have built a family of members and have stood by them, and will continue to do so for generations to come; delivering excellent service and building trust, making it possible for families, individuals and businesses in the communities we serve to prosper.”

As Northeast Credit Union continues to grow, we strive to be an employer of choice in the region. We have built a strong culture focused on Teamwork, Integrity, Respect and Excellence. We are currently seeking to fill over 39 positions as we have expanded our footprint to serve more members in Maine and New Hampshire, with the addition of 5 locations in Southern Maine. “We are looking for extraordinary people to join our team” stated Andrea Pruna, Chief Marketing and Retail Officer for Northeast Credit Union. “Our folks are passionate about delivering great service and working hard to better the financial lives of our members, while making a difference in their communities; this recognition by Forbes is a testament to their hard work; we couldn’t be any prouder,” concluded Pruna.
