Genisys receives Economic Bright Spots Award

Genisys Credit Union, which provides services to anyone who lives or works in Michigan's Lower Peninsula, was recently awarded Corp! Magazine's Michigan's Economic Bright Spots Award and was honored at an awards breakfast.

"Genisys worked hard to improve all areas of business for our members last year," said Jackie Buchanan, president/CEO. "We are once again extremely honored to accept this prestigious award from Corp! Magazine."

Genisys is one honoree out of hundreds of nominations demonstrating that there are Michigan-based companies who are growing, thriving and standing out from the crowd. In 2013, Genisys saw a profit increase of nearly 8% and increased its auto loan balances by over 20%, while many financial institutions continue to cut back lending. In order to position itself for continued growth, Genisys has invested in member conveniences and has dedicated many of its resources to giving back to surrounding communities. Genisys has nearly 30,000 surcharge-free ATMs, mobile banking, newly developed mobile deposit applications, and in 2013 contributed nearly 4,000 volunteer hours to local communities on behalf of Genisys staff and family.

"Corp! is pleased to celebrate the companies and individuals that are receiving this year's Michigan Economic Bright Spots and Entrepreneurs of Distinction awards. Genisys is the only credit union to receive the award, not only because of their passion for business, but for improving the economy throughout the state of Michigan, as well," said Jennifer Kluge, publisher of Corp! Magazine.
