Nusenda Credit Union was named Best Credit Union in New Mexico by Albuquerque Journal readers on Sept. 27, 2020, and for the second year won the Best Auto Loan category. Nusenda has been named as top in the credit union category in the readers’ poll since the award’s inception seven years ago.
"While many things have changed in the last few months, our values have not. A commitment to excellent member service, care for our community, being an employer of choice, and offering flexible products and services to meet our members’ changing needs have always been our priorities,” said Nusenda President/CEO Joe Christian. "We are thankful for this recognition, which confirms our employees are doing the right things for our 220,000 members and the communities we serve."
Christian added that low rates, flexible terms, no application fees, strong partnerships with local dealerships, and innovative programs like fuel-efficient auto loan rate discounts and first-time buyer initiatives are what sets Nusenda apart, helping it to win Best Auto Loan.
More than 120,800 votes were cast for the awards, which feature categories ranging from local businesses, restaurants, shopping, entertainment, medical and legal services, and more.
