Northern Colorado’s Newest Credit Union Named “Best-In-State” by Forbes

Jul 27, 2021 | Member News

For the fourth consecutive year, Ent Credit Union has been named the top-ranked credit union in Colorado, and one of the best credit unions in America according to Forbes. “We are honored and humbled to once again receive this national recognition from Forbes,” said Chad Graves, chief executive officer for Ent. “The fact that our members took the time to rate us highly in areas such as trust, financial advice, transparency and service means everything to us.”

More than 25,000 U.S. citizens were surveyed, with only 3.6% of the nation’s 5,068 credit unions receiving a “Best-In-State” designation.

“Over the past year, we have introduced Ent to more Coloradans than ever before, providing support wherever possible to our members, small businesses and communities as they dealt with the ongoing challenges resulting from the pandemic,” said Graves. “Though we don’t serve for accolades or recognition, an award like this is the best kind of thank-you note from our members.”

Ent opened its first Northern Colorado location in Downtown Fort Collins in the summer of 2020 and has subsequently opened three additional centers in Larimer County with a fifth scheduled to open this fall in North Loveland.

In addition to the national designation from Forbes, Ent continues to be recognized regionally as it expands across the Front Range. Ent was recently named “Best Credit Union” by the Colorado Springs Gazette, ColoradoBiz Magazine, Pueblo Chieftain, Pikes Peak Courier and the Colorado Springs Business Journal, who also recognized the credit union as “Best Financial Advisor.” Ent received “Best Mortgage Company” honors from the Colorado Springs Gazette as well.
