Photo Release -- WSFS Bank’s ‘Icons’ Video is Named ‘Best in Show’ by the American Bankers Association

WILMINGTON, Del., Sept. 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WSFS Bank’s “Icons” video has earned two major awards from the American Bankers Association (ABA).  “Icons” was the winner in the category of banks with more than $5 billion in assets, which includes more than 230 banks across the country and among the largest financial institutions.  The video also scored highest from the nearly 400 entries by banks of all sizes to win the “Best in Show” award, the highest recognition presented by the ABA and the organization’s fourth annual ABA Bank Marketing Video Awards. “Icons” is one of several multimedia creative pieces WSFS has rolled out in recent months as part of a marketing campaign that coincided with the Bank’s expansion into the City of Philadelphia, and suburbs in southeastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey.

“Icons” uses map icon images over panoramic video of Greater Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley to demonstrate the multiple digital and smartphone solutions, and an expanded network of banking offices, that WSFS Customers utilize to access their bank accounts.  The video received the highest score combining judges’ points and public votes.

WSFS Bank’s Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President, Justin Dunn, said, “’Icons’ is a visualization of WSFS Bank’s commitment to be the most accessible, locally-focused and service-oriented community bank of the Greater Delaware Valley, and it is a creative representation of WSFS Bank’s mission, We Stand For Service. We are delighted with this recognition.”

WSFS Bank leveraged the creative services of BouchezPage for its recent marketing campaign.
