WEST JORDAN, UT--(Marketwired - Jun 22, 2015) -  Mountain America Credit Union has been selected as a recipient of the 2015 Gartner & 1to1 Media Customer Excellence Award for Innovation in Customer Insight. Now in its 11th year, the award highlights companies that are customer-focused and add measurable value through the combined use of strategy, technology and execution to deliver exceptional customer experiences.

As a credit union, Mountain America doesn't have customers; they have members, each with ownership in the not-for-profit, full-service financial institution. Since 2012, Mountain America has run a formalized program to refine member experience and build loyalty by acting on member feedback. Mountain America uses the MaritzCX platform to help bring together insights from surveys, unsolicited feedback via the Member Voice website link and social media, the call center, and branch employees, to continuously improve business operations and the overall member experience.

"Mountain America is in business to help our members achieve their financial dreams. We work continually to better understand our members' priorities and then match them with quality products and services that complement their unique situation," noted Dennis Bromley, SVP of Member Development and Engagement for Mountain America. "We are honored to receive this award by Gartner & 1to1 Media."

"I'm proud of our class of 2015 winners. For the first time, our winners have outlined clear-cut goals, the ability to achieve enterprise-wide buy-in and commitment, cross-departmental process changes and tangible results. Most importantly, they've elevated their customer experience to meet consumer expectations," said Mila D'Antonio, editor-in-chief of 1to1 Media. "My hope is that organizations across all industries will take away at least one element from these winning initiatives to implement within their companies."

Mountain America will be recognized during the Gartner Customer 360 Summit in San Diego, CA, and featured on 1to1 Media's website and on the Gartner Customer 360 Summit website.
