Merrimack Valley Credit Union was recently named “Best Credit Union” in the Eagle-Tribune’s annual contest in which the newspaper’s audience votes online for their favorite local businesses.
The Eagle-Tribune covers the Merrimack Valley region of Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire, including the towns of Andover, North Andover, Methuen, Lawrence and Haverhill in Massachusetts and Salem, Atkinson, Plaistow, Pelham, Windham, Derry and Londonderry in New Hampshire.
Since 1955, MVCU has dedicated itself to resolving the financial challenges of its members and to supporting the community at large through charitable donations, sponsorships and hosting community-centric events such as first-time home buying and financial education seminars; SHRED-IT days to help protect personal information; food, toy and school supply drives, and more.
Earlier this year, MVCU became the fifth largest credit union in Massachusetts with $2.3 billion in assets following a merger with RTN Federal Credit Union. The credit union was recognized as one of the Boston Business Journal’s 2023 Best Places to Work this spring, and its President & CEO John J. Howard was recently named CEO of the Year during the Cooperative Credit Union Association’s annual APEX conference.
