The Blue Federal Credit Union has won the Ethics Award from the Better Business Bureau (BBB) as well as three Diamond Awards from the Credit Union National Association (CUNA).
The Torch Prize is the most prestigious award the BBB can bestow on a business. Being the recipient indicates that the company not only believes in the high ethical standards promoted by the BBB, but also acts on them and incorporates them into its daily practices.
“To be recognized as a torch award winner is a great honor that Blue is honored to receive,” said President and CEO Stephanie Teubner. “In everything Blue does, we strive to be ethical and faultless. The Torch Award signifies to our members and potential members that Blue will always put their best interests first and work hard to maintain their trust in the credit union.
The second set of awards received by Blue is the CUNA Diamond Awards. The Diamond Awards, the most prestigious competition for excellence in marketing and business development in the credit union industry.
Participation was exceptional for the competition, with 1,278 entries submitted and 264 credit unions winning Diamond Awards. Blue won three in the following categories: business development efforts, crisis management and internal marketing.
“We believe in a strong brand presence supported by agile and poignant marketing campaigns,” said Raj Madan, Director of Marketing. “Winning three Diamond Awards, amidst everything that has happened in 2020, shows that Blue is able to respond quickly to the environment and to member needs with industry-recognized excellence.”
The Torch Award and the Diamond Awards are the latest additions to Blue in becoming a multi-award-winning institution. Throughout 2020, Blue has won six awards recognizing things like our COVID-19 community response, corporate social responsibility, and an outstanding credit union in the Western Mountain region.
