Awards Customer Visions FCU Receives Celent Model Bank Award

Celent’s annual Model Bank Awards recognize the best practices of technology usage in different areas critical to success in banking.

Celent’s annual Model Bank Awards nominations are submitted by financial institutions and undergo a rigorous evaluation process by Celent analysts. Watch the interview of Tom Novak, VP/Chief Deposit & Payments Officer at Visions Federal Credit Union, at the Celent Innovation & Insight Day:


Celent judges the submissions on three core criteria:

  1. Demonstrable business benefits of live initiatives
  2. Degree of innovation relative to the industry
  3. Technology or implementation excellence.


According to Bob Meara, Senior Analyst at Celent:

“The Model Bank Awards recognize how financial institutions are using technology to change the face of banking. These institutions should serve as an inspiration to others looking for strong examples of best practice implementation that will have a truly meaningful impact on business results and the industry overall. The entry from Visions FCU clearly demonstrated this.”
