Raddon Financial Group Picks Ten Credit Unions that Excelled in Overall Performance.

LOMBARD, Ill. -- Raddon Financial Group (RFG), a strategic business unit of Open Solutions Inc.[R], recently presented their Crystal Performance Awards to ten high-performing credit unions with assets below $500 million.

The Crystal Performance Award was designed to recognize credit unions for achieving a top ten ranking based the RFG Performance Index[TM], a balanced scorecard measurement of growth, income, efficiency and margin management.

The award winning credit unions were invited to attend RFG's annual, invitation-only CEO Forum, held August 12th through 14th at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo. Among the honorees below $500 million in assets, Consumers Credit Union, DHCU Community Credit Union, Library of Congress Federal Credit Union and Lincoln County Credit Union were present to receive their award. The award winners not present at the CEO Forum included Appalachian Community Federal Credit Union, Florida Credit Union, ILWU Credit Union, Kirtland Federal Credit Union, Sound Credit Union and SouthPoint Federal Credit Union.

"We are pleased to recognize such a diverse group of credit unions from all areas of the country. Despite differences in geography, member demographics and scale, each of these credit unions embodies the key traits we find in measuring high performing credit unions. Their management teams, boards, employees and members should be pleased with this recognition," offered Bill Handel, vice president of research and product development with RFG.

More than 500 credit unions were evaluated for the Crystal Performance Award through RFG's CEO Strategies Group program. To be eligible for the Crystal Performance Award, a credit union must participate in the CEO Strategies Group for an in-depth analysis of the credit union's financials, sales, products and member household relationships. RFG recognized the top ten credit unions in two asset classes based on their 2008 performance: credit unions above $500 million and below $500 million in assets.
