Crestmark’s Marketing Department Recognized with Four Communicator Awards

Truck Driver Direct-Mail Piece Receives Award of Excellence

TROY, Mich., (June 23, 2016) – Crestmark was honored by the 22nd Annual Communicator Awards with an Award of Excellence and three Awards of Distinction for print ads and direct-mail. For the international competition, one of the largest of its kind, Crestmark’s entries competed with more than 6,000 others. In the Direct Mail category of Marketing/Promotion, the following entries were recognized: “Truck Driver,” “At Every Turn,” “A New Year,” and “Plaid to Pink Snaps.” “Truck Driver” received the Award of Excellence. The concept for this direct-mail piece references the heightened interest in driverless trucks – throwing in a bit of fun. Targeted to an audience of owner/operators of businesses in the transportation industry, the direct-mail piece creates awareness for Crestmark’s timely financial solutions.

“Our priority is to get Information to the marketplace about Crestmark’s financial solutions for small- and medium-sized businesses,” said Crestmark’s Marty Blake, executive vice president. “It’s a bonus that Crestmark has been recognized for high quality work. We are very proud and appreciative of the talents of Lisa Beattie and her team.”
