Unity One Credit Union wins three Pinnacle Awards at Cornerstone Credit Union League Annual Meeting
FORT WORTH, TX (May 13, 2022) — Unity One Credit Union has won three Pinnacle Awards from the Cornerstone Credit Union League for outstanding work in marketing for projects accomplished in 2021. The awards were presented at the 2022 annual meeting.
Held in Grapevine, Texas, the 2022 IMPACT Annual Meeting brought together nearly 400 credit unions from Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas. Cornerstone’s Marketing and Business Development Council created the Pinnacle Awards to honor credit unions and recognize staff for their special skills, innovation, time and resources. The Pinnacle Awards are the pre-eminent recognition of success for a Cornerstone League credit union.
Unity One was awarded Pinnacle Awards in the Internal Marketing, Membership Marketing, and Outdoor Advertising categories. Unity One accomplished these projects by use of internal support and working with their marketing agency of record, MarketMatch.
The Internal Marketing award was for the Unity One Staff Olympics internal event, held during the 2021 Summer Olympic games. The event featured two weeks’ worth of events to boost morale of the staff amidst the ongoing pandemic. The Membership Marketing award was presented for Unity One and MarketMatch’s work on the online banking conversion project. With such a complex project, many materials were needed to inform members of what was to come. Finally, the outdoor advertising award was earned from Unity One and MarketMatch’s work on a branded outdoor ATM wrap for the Maplewood, Minnesota, branch location.
Unity One Credit Union is a $315M credit union serving 29,000 members in Fort Worth, Texas; Kansas City, Mo.; and St. Paul, Minn. with a focus on providing financial management and tools for railroad workers of BNSF Railway.
“The Pinnacle Awards are a great way to be recognized for the work we do throughout the year,” said Alyssa Guillory, vice president of marketing at Unity One. “Cornerstone invests a lot of time and energy into considering all the submissions and selecting the award winners. It’s an honor to receive an award!”
