Education Credit Union President and CEO Gregg Bynum announced that Education Credit Union (ECU) continued a 104-consecutive-quarter streak by receiving Bauer Financial’s 5-Star Sustained Superiority rating for 2018 and has been named a Best of Bauer Credit Union.

Amarillo-based ECU is a $254 million credit union and has maintained Bauer’s 5-star rating for 26 consecutive years. The award is given to financial intuitions that are in the 90th percentile for financial strength.

There are currently only 387 credit unions and 384 banks that have earned this distinction, or a little over 6 percent of the industry.”
