WEST JORDAN, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- Mountain American Credit Union was recently named a LearningElite organization for 2014 by Chief Learning Officer magazine. Singled out for creating and implementing exemplary workforce development practices that deliver measureable business value, Mountain American ranked No. 46 from a record-breaking field of more than 200 companies, participating in the prestigious annual benchmarking program.

"We are honored to be selected as a LearningElite organization," says Suzanne Oliver, senior vice president of Educational Services and Governmental Affairs for Mountain America. "To be the only financial institution recognized with this award is a significant honor. There is great value in establishing high-quality learning and development practices for our employees at Mountain America, and this award is a great barometer of the good things we are doing."
