5-Star Compass Community Credit Union: Doing the right thing

EUREKA, CA (October 16, 2019) — Compass Community Credit Union has once again received a Superior 5-star Rating from BauerFinancial, the Nation’s Premier Bank and Credit Union Rating Firm. Not only has Compass Community Credit Union earned Bauer’s highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability, it has maintained that top rating for 38 consecutive quarters. Earning and maintaining Bauer’s highest 5-Star rating indicates Compass Community Credit Union is one of the strongest credit unions in the nation.

“BauerFinancial would like to congratulate Mr. Ray Litchfield, CEO and the entire team at Compass Community Credit Union. Strong leadership and dedication to excellence both inside the branch and outside among its members are the building blocks for success,” remarked Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “Credit Unions, like Compass Community Credit Union, are fiscally-fit because they go the extra mile to help their membership to be fiscally-fit as well. In the end, Compass Community Credit Union and its members both reap the benefits.”

“I am so proud of the hard work and dedication from our staff,” said Compass Community Credit Union CEO, Ray Litchfield. “You don’t earn a 5-Star rating for 38 consecutive quarters by coming in, punching the time clock and going through the motions. Our staff works extremely hard and we strive to provide exceptional member service. Our goal is to do what is best for our members. It’s part of who we are and what we do.”
