American 1 Credit Union has been awarded Southeast Michigan’s Best Credit Union by MLive’s 2021 Michigan Best Reader’s Choice Awards.
The Southeast region for the competition included Detroit, Ann Arbor, Jackson, and Lansing.
There were two phases in the contest – First, readers picked their favorite places within various categories, such as their favorite restaurants, pet stores, and campsites – Then, the top nominees moved to the voting phase.
“The recognition this award provides means a lot to everyone at American 1 Credit Union,” said Martha Fuerstenau, President/CEO of American 1 Credit Union. “Thank you to our members for taking the time to nominate and vote for us. At American 1, we strive to always put our members first by living out our purpose statement, which is to provide financial wellness through personal everyday banking. We are so grateful and humbled to win this award.”
In an article published by MLive in early October, Anne Drummond, director of creating advertising sales for MLive Media Group, said this project was created to call attention to businesses within communities that have endured and to honor their “innovation and resilience.” This was the first year Mlive hosted the contest.
“Reader’s Choice offers area businesses a distinction that is crowd-sourced,” Drummond said. “Nothing could be more meaningful than knowing that your work is among the most desirable of its kind in the region or state.”
