Bank On More Wins International Communicator Awards
Bank On More has been spreading the credit union message since 2013. Its bold, fresh approach caught the attention of not only Missourians, but that of the marketing and communications industry.
"It was wonderful to hear that Bank On More's messaging and creative concepts resonated with communication industry experts," says Halley Abbott, vice president of Communications for the Missouri Credit Union Association. "We're committed to the brand and the mission of making credit unions grow by increasing consumer awareness."
The campaign, which was spearheaded by APCO Worldwide, earned three Communicator Awards, a leading international awards program that recognizes big ideas in marketing and communications.
