First Florida Credit Union Named as Best Credit Union in the Tallahassee Readers’ Choice Awards

TALLAHASEE, Fla. – First Florida Credit Union was recently named Tallahassee’s best credit union by those who voted in the inaugural Tallahassee Readers’ Choice Awards, which was held by the Tallahassee Democrat. 

Nominations for the Tallahassee Readers’ Choice Awards began in May, when the public was asked to nominate their favorite businesses across more than 100 categories. Once the top five businesses in each category were identified, the Tallahassee Democrat asked readers to vote for the winners across industries that ranged from entertainment and dining to finance and education. 

First Florida Credit Union operates six branches in the Big Bend and another 12 throughout the state of Florida. Brent Lister, president and CEO at First Florida Credit Union, said his leadership team is especially proud of this award win because the designation comes directly from the community. 

“At First Florida Credit Union, we are committed to enriching people every day – and that starts with our members and the communities in which we’re embedded,” Lister said. “We are proud to be part of this vibrant community in Tallahassee and will continue to uphold the distinction that the Tallahassee Democrat readers awarded our company.”
Purchasing of advertising in the Tallahassee Democrat or online did not influence the outcome of the voting process for the Tallahassee Readers’ Choice Awards. To view the complete list of winners and finalists in each category, visit
