ST. PAUL, MINN. (June 13, 2023) – Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union (Affinity Plus) has been named one of the Top 200 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune for the sixth year in a row.

In addition, Dave Larson also received special recognition with an award for “Top Leadership” in a large company.

“Our employees strive every day to make Affinity Plus the best place our members have ever banked - helping people who want a stronger connection with a financial partner focused on their needs,” said Dave Larson, President and CEO of Affinity Plus. “That energy and spirit is contagious, but it requires a strong community of trust and commitment.” I’m thrilled that employees continue to recognize Affinity Plus as that employer of choice – and a Top Workplace.”
