Frontwave named Best Credit Union and Best Mortgage Company in San Diego reader poll

OCEANSIDE, CA (October 26, 2020) — Frontwave Credit Union has been named San Diego’s Best Credit Union and Best Mortgage Company in the San Diego Reader’s 2020 Best-Of Poll. Each year, the San Diego Reader invites San Diegans to nominate their favorite San Diego-based businesses, 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, over 300,000 votes were cast and Frontwave was honored to be declared the winner in both categories it was nominated for.

“This is a great honor to be recognized by our community,” said Bill Birnie, President/CEO for Frontwave Credit Union. “For nearly 70 years, we’ve been committed to making financial dreams come true. This recognition is proof that we are delivering on our vision to be the best place our members have ever banked. I want to thank all of our Dream Makers for their dedication to our members, membership, and the communities that we serve.”

This is the first year Frontwave Credit Union has taken the top spot in the annual San Diego Reader poll. The full results of the poll are published in its special October 22 Best-Of issue, distributed to businesses, stores and restaurants throughout San Diego County.
