John M. Floyd & Associates (JMFA), the leading consultant for banks and credit unions nationwide, received top honors at the 29th Annual American Marketing Association (AMA) Houston Crystal Awards Gala. JMFA’s New Overdraft Privilege Program marketing endeavors were recognized as Best in the Business-to-Business Marketing Campaign and Two-Dimensional Printed Direct Mail Campaign categories.
“We are certainly honored to receive this recognition from the AMA for the efforts that went into our 2014 marketing initiatives, as well as the results,” said John M. Floyd, chairman and CEO. “The All-New Overdraft Privilege Program campaign allowed us to increase awareness among financial institutions of the changing regulatory requirements that have made many existing overdraft programs obsolete and to explain how our product could not only help them maintain compliance, but also increase their institution’s performance and efficiencies.”
In addition to surpassing initial marketing objectives, the campaigns presented an important message regarding the need for financial institutions to provide full disclosure to account holders about how their transactions will be handled. “As a long-time advocate of transparent financial services, we are committed to building relationships by helping our clients improve their profitability while they provide products and services that are beneficial to their account holders,” Floyd said.
The Crystal Awards, AMA Houston’s premier event, honors the vision and strategic direction of the city’s best marketing work. Winners are selected based on the effectiveness of their marketing and communication success. This year’s judging included more than 360 entries in 80 categories.
