El Segundo, CA (PRWEB) February 12, 2013
As a leading personal finance site that works with thousands of banks, credit unions and lenders on a daily basis, Go Banking Rates is launching its first Financial Institution Awards to distinguish best in class banks and credit unions.
The Go Banking Rates team developed the Financial Institution Awards in order to recognize the top financial institutions presently making a strong, positive impact in their local communities.
The bank or credit union named the winner of the FI Awards will be given the opportunity to gain visibility on a national scale and receive recognition for the outstanding contributions it has made to the customers and communities it serves.
Participants will be judged by a panel of experts in the categories of community involvement, member incentives/special promotions, and customer service.
The winner of the Go Banking Rates Financial Institution Award will receive a feature article published on Go Banking Rates, profiling the winning institution; a press campaign announcing the win, distributed to thousands of relevant media contacts; custom Go Banking Rates 2013 Financial Institution Award creatives; and a certificate of acknowledgement.
“We are eager to kick off our 2013 Go Banking Rates FI Awards. Our goal is to showcase financial institutions who exemplify exceptional leadership in their respective communities. We have already begun to see a great deal of participants and nominees, so we look forward to awarding a winner,” stated Go Banking Rates CEO, Brett Rossmann.
The winner will be announced April 1, 2013. All financial institutions are encouraged to apply, regardless of size. Members may also nominate their favorite banks and credit unions.
Entries into the Financial Institution Awards are due by March 1, 2013 at 11:59 PST. For more information about eligibility and how to enter, please direct inquiries to taylorl(at)gobankingrates(dot)com.
