Genisys Credit Union awarded Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce Excellence Award

AUBURN HILLS, MI (December 13, 2019) — On December 9, 2019, the Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce recognized individuals and companies for their achievements in the areas of innovation, leadership, and community involvement at the Silver & Gold Awards Holiday Brunch. Genisys Credit Union was awarded the Atlas Copco Excellence Award and extends their thank you for the recognition.

“We are honored to be awarded the Atlas Copco Excellence Award,” said Jackie Buchanan CEO / President of Genisys Credit Union. “We are proud to have many talented Team members share their expertise with industry committees to ensure the financial industry continues to move forward.”

The Atlas Copco Excellence Award recognizes companies that not only meet industry standards but have gone above and beyond to improve their company and industry expectations. In a highly regulated industry, Genisys has found a way to not just meet standards, but to move the bar higher and challenge the entire industry to follow suit in areas such as community giveback, technology, and financial education.

Each year Genisys’ team members contribute nearly 5,000 volunteer hours and sponsor over 975 events to benefit everyone who lives or works in their communities. The credit union has been proud to partner with the Auburn Hills community across a variety of events and business-focused initiatives designed to empower and teach upcoming professionals how to position themselves for success.

“In the spirit of improving our communities and giving back, Genisys is proud of everything we are able to give back to make our neighborhoods enjoyable places to work and live,” said Buchanan.

Exceeding standards doesn’t stop with community involvement at the credit union. Genisys is proud to have industry-leading professionals on staff that head several committees and hold Board of Director positions with Credit Union partners nationwide that serve the entire industry.

The credit union would not be able to continue to push the standards, improve the company and Credit Union industry without a solid financial base. Genisys ranks in the top 100 largest credit unions in the U.S. and continually receives a 5-star rating from the independent rating firm Bauer Financial.
