Surrey, B.C: Coast Capital Savings has won a 2018 Achievement in Marketing Excellence (AIME) Award for its fall 2017 What does financial well-being mean to you campaign.

The AIME Awards, handed out last week at the National Credit Union Awards in Toronto, are awarded annually to recognize the best marketing and communications campaigns created by credit unions, cooperatives and suppliers to the industry. Coast Capital’s award was in the Brand and Brand Building category.

“We worked with our long-time creative partners at Rethink to marry our brand personality with our drive to empower our members to achieve what’s important in their lives,” said Lawrie Ferguson, Chief Marketing Officer. “To be recognized among our credit union peers for this campaign is an honour and one we are very proud of.”

Coast Capital’s new corporate purpose, together, we help empower you to achieve what’s important in your life, was developed with input from employees and members to galvanize the entire organization around its drive to improve Canadians’ financial well-being and realize their dreams.
