Cornerstone Bank Wins National Award

Cornerstone Bank is one of four banks honored by the American Bankers Association with an award recognizing the nation’s best bank marketing videos. The third annual ABA Bank Marketing Video Awards featured 400 entries from banks of all sizes nationwide.

"We are honored and proud," said Cornerstone Bank Marketing Director Kristin Jaeger. "We put together a great team to work on this project and had a lot of fun capturing what makes Cornerstone Bank #NOTGENERIC."

Cornerstone Bank’s video— "#NOTGENERIC"—was a winner for the Best in Asset Category $500 Million - $1 Billion. The video was recognized for its focus on how banking with Cornerstone is no generic banking experience. A panel of bank marketing experts evaluated the production value, creativity and messaging of all entries. The top six videos for each asset category were then posted on for public voting, where tens of thousands of viewers helped determined the winners.
