VIENNA, Va., Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- FORTUNE Magazine announced today that Navy Federal Credit Union has been named to its 2013 list of "100 Best Companies To Work For." This marks Navy Federal's third appearance on the list, having first been recognized in 2008 and again in 2012. Navy Federal remains the only credit union ever selected for the list.
"This is an important honor for us. I believe it recognizes the enthusiasm and dedication our employees have for our mission to serve the men and women of the Department of Defense and their families," said Cutler Dawson, President/CEO, Navy Federal Credit Union. "2012 was a record year for us—record growth in new members, loans, deposits and all our member success measures. But the real story is that we couldn't have done this without the commitment of our employees. I am so very proud of the entire Navy Federal team."
In 2012, the Navy Federal workforce grew to over 10,000 employees on its three campuses —Vienna, Va., Winchester, Va. and Pensacola, Fl.—and 229 branches worldwide. "We value employees who want to be part of a winning team and will embrace our corporate culture," continued Dawson. "We return that dedication by providing outstanding training, opportunities for career advancement — and excellent benefits."
"Some of the most eloquent comments about Navy Federal come from the employees themselves," said Dawson. "I can't say it better than one of our employees did: 'It is a pleasure to work for a company that really cares about its employees as much as Navy Federal does. I love my job and hope to be with Navy Federal until I retire one day. I am proud to tell my family and friends how great Navy Federal is and how good they are to their employees!'"
