10/11/2011 11:49:11 AM

Clearwater, FL – October 11, 2011 – Achieva Credit Union is once again honored to be recognized as a Superior 5-Star rated credit union by BauerFinancial, Inc., Coral Gables, Florida, the nation’s leading credit union and bank rating and research firm.  To earn this rating Achieva Credit Union must not only report impressive capital levels, but also an enviable loan portfolio with negligible levels of delinquent loans.

That’s a combination that has been hard to come by the past couple of years.  Yet, Achieva Credit Union has managed to do it.  With that, BauerFinancial bestows its highest 5-Star Superior rating on Achieva Credit Union denoting the highest level of strength and performance that a credit union can receive.  In fact, Achieva Credit Union has earned Bauer’s recommended rating (5-Stars or 4-Stars) for the last 75 consecutive quarters.

“Not only has Achieva Credit Union proven its efficacy yesterday and today, it is also primed for whatever tomorrow may bring,” observes Karen L. Dorway, president of BauerFinancial.  “The past three years have put a considerable amount of pressure on our nation’s financial system and we are pleased to see credit unions, like Achieva Credit Union, still able to shine.”

“We are proud to have received this recognition” stated Gary Regoli, President/CEO Achieva Credit Union.  “Accomplishing this superior rating is testament to Achieva’s hard work and dedication in this economy and in our immediate market.”
