Entrust Financial Credit Union in Richmond recently was honored with a Diamond Award, which recognizes outstanding marketing and business development achievements in the credit union industry. Entrust Financial CU won the Complete Campaign category for its entry entitled “Knock Down Your High Rate.” For the promotion, Entrust Financial CU offered to beat your vehicle loan rate – if they couldn’t beat it, you received a $50 Visa gift card. The refinancing campaign yielded the credit union triple the amount of vehicle loans from the previous year and since then has yet to give out a gift card. The award was presented by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Marketing and Business Development Council, a national network comprised of nearly 1,000 credit union marketing and business development professionals. Awards are given in each of 33 categories ranging from advertising to community events and beyond.
