VIENNA, Va. (October 24, 2019) – Navy Federal Credit Union remains the industry leader for a second consecutive year, ranking No. 1 among U.S. companies in KPMG’s 2019 U.S. Customer Experience Excellence Report. The credit union is being recognized for delivering the best customer experience, taking the top spot over 295 brands across 10 business sectors.
“Our mission is to serve as our members’ trusted financial partner for all of life's important decisions,” said Mary McDuffie, president/CEO of Navy Federal. “Our entire team is committed to meeting our members’ needs and we are always looking for new ways to make the member experience even better.” KPMG ranked brands across Six Pillars of Customer Experience Excellence to identify the leaders in each country: Personalization; Integrity; Expectations; Resolution; Time & Effort and Empathy. Navy Federal is one of only five brands to receive a score 8.5 or more.
“KPMG’s research shows us that leading organizations have built unique emotional connections with their customers, and continue to deliver impactful experience across the customer lifecycle,” said Julio Hernandez, U.S. Customer Advisory Practice Lead, KPMG LLP. “Navy Federal Credit Union once again tops our leaders table because our research indicates that they have a personal, individualized understanding of their members, allowing them to put their members firmly at the center of their decision making.”
