The Democrat & Chronicle, hosts of the annual Rochester Choice Awards, asked the Rochester community to vote for the best businesses and organizations in the area. Kinecta Federal Credit Union was selected as a finalist for Best Credit Union, meaning many Rochester residents made Kinecta their first choice for their banking needs.
Those organizations selected were chosen by community voting, and once nominated, another round of voting took place to elect the winners. People voted in over 150 categories, including Beauty & Health, Clothing, Dining, Entertainment & Leisure, Home, Home Services & Finance, Kids & Education, Media, People & Places, Services, Shopping, Spirits, Sports, Top Employer, and Vehicles Dealers & Services.
"Kinecta is a new name in the Rochester marketplace following our merger with Xceed Credit Union in 2021. It's an honor to be recognized and it highlights the level of service member-owners receive from our veteran Rochester team and Kinecta's strong commitment to serving the Rochester community," said President and Chief Executive Officer of Kinecta, Keith Sultemeier. "Credit unions have a long-standing history of service to their communities, and Kinecta will continue this while fulfilling its mission to help member-owners build financial security and achieve their financial dreams."
