Mountain America Credit Union Makes a Strong Entrance Into 2016

WEST JORDAN, UT--(Marketwired - March 17, 2016) - Mountain America Credit Union reached a pivotal milestone as it closed out 2015 with over $5 billion in assets.

Mountain America is the 12th largest credit union in the nation and the second largest credit union in Utah. But it is not growing just for growth's sake. Instead, it is growing so that more consumers can take advantage of the credit union's competitive rates, robust and convenient technology offerings, financial education and world-class member service.

Sterling Nielsen, president and CEO at Mountain America, says member experience is at the heart of this credit union's growth. "Take care of members," he says, "and everything will fall into place."

People have a choice when it comes to their finances, and considering Mountain America's impressive year-over-year growth, people are choosing Mountain America as their credit union. Since Nielsen became CEO in 2008, Mountain America has nearly doubled in assets ($2.8 billion in 2008). With membership growth rising over 11% per year and an aggressive growth pattern within its loan portfolio, Mountain America is moving strong into 2016.

Growth is no accident at Mountain America. Instead, the credit union is working under an ambitious growth plan to remain a high-functioning, member-centric operation centered on the "people helping people" philosophy.

"We do what we do -- every day -- so that we can help our members achieve their financial dreams," Nielsen says. "It's that simple."

Mountain America Credit Union has more than $5 billion in assets and serves over 570,000 members, wherever they are, through online and mobile banking, 86 branches in five states and access to more than 30,000 ATMs and 5,000 shared-branching locations nationwide. With roots dating back to the 1930s, Mountain America offers a variety of financial products and services for consumers and businesses, including savings accounts, auto loans, checking accounts, mortgage loans, business checking, student loans, SBA loans and retirement options.
