Portland Business Journal ranked Oregon’s largest credit union first among banks and wealth management firms.
PORTLAND, Ore., December 8, 2023—The Portland Business Journal named OnPoint Community Credit Union Oregon’s “Most Admired Company” in the Financial Services category. This honor marks OnPoint’s 16th consecutive year as one of the state’s most admirable credit unions, banks or wealth management firms throughout Oregon.
The Portland Business Journal surveys nearly 4,000 chief executive officers (CEOs) annually across Oregon and Southwest Washington to select the companies they admire most. The survey identifies and evaluates companies across all industries based on innovation, branding and marketing, quality of management, community involvement and quality of products and services.
“This incredible recognition would not be possible without the dedication of our employees, the loyalty of our members and the trust of our nonprofit partners,” said Rob Stuart, President and CEO, OnPoint Community Credit Union. “Building strong communities is why we exist, and our purpose grows as we do. Being recognized as a ‘most admired’ organization is a testament to the tireless work of OnPoint’s more than 1,000 employees. We thank the Portland Business Journal community for recognizing their impact on the region.”

The credit union opened its first branches in Corvallis and Newberg.

Additionally, Portland Workforce Alliance received the inaugural Financial Education Innovation Award of $100,000 to build their capacity.
