Frontwave Credit Union named San Diego’s Best Credit Union and Best Mortgage Company

OCEANSIDE, CA (November 1, 2022)

 Frontwave Credit Union has once again been named San Diego’s Best Credit Union and Best Mortgage Company in the annual San Diego Reader Best Of poll.

Each year, the San Diego Reader invites San Diegans to nominate their favorite businesses, charities, restaurants and activities to be named to the Best Of list. The top 5 nominees in each category then go head-to-head in a month-long voting process. This year, nearly 200,000 votes were cast for over 1,400 competing business and organizations. Frontwave was honored to be voted Best Credit Union for the third consecutive year in a row, and Best Mortgage Company for the second time in three years.

“San Diego is home to a number of great financial institutions, so it’s a huge honor to once again be voted as the best of the best – not just once, not just twice, but three years in a row!” said Bill Birnie, President/CEO for Frontwave Credit Union. “I could not be prouder of the dedication our Dream Makers demonstrate to our Membership and the communities we serve every day. For 70 years, we’ve been committed to making financial dreams come true. This recognition reaffirms that we’re delivering on our promise.” 

Frontwave Credit Union is joined on this year’s Best Of list by outstanding organizations such as Father Joe’s Village, Feeding San Diego and UC San Diego Medical. The full results of the poll were published in the October 6 issue of the San Diego Reader, available online and distributed to businesses, stores and restaurants throughout San Diego County.
