Utah First Named Top Bank for Small Business

The City Weekly Best of Utah 2021 Awards have been announced and Utah First Credit Union has been named one of the top three banks in Utah for small businesses.

Going the Extra Mile for Small Businesses

City Weekly has published a “Best of Utah” issue on an annual basis for the past 30 years. The publication recognizes outstanding people and organizations that make our state great. This issue had a particular focus on those that “went the extra mile during the pandemic in putting public health first,” according to Scott Renshaw, City Weekly’s longest-tenured editorial staffer.

Utah First has always been a place of shelter from the storms of life. And for the past two years, the credit union has worked tirelessly to keep Utah’s community businesses thriving through PPP loan funding, payment deferrals, offering great loan rates to individuals and businesses, and other programs.

“As a credit union that takes great pride in the communities we live and love, we’re honored to be recognized for our commitment to and partnership with local businesses,” said Utah First CEO Darin Moody. “This honor from a local publication that knows Utah hits close to home and stands out among other recognitions this year.”

“We realize that we are extremely lucky to be part of such an amazing community,” he added. “We’re always looking for opportunities to improve and we take pride in implementing tried-and-true practices day after day, week after week, and year after year to help individuals, families and local businesses succeed.”
