Challenge NBT Bank was faced with the challenge of attracting new business banking customers in key markets amidst the ongoing buzz around a competitor’s growth due to a major acquisition.

Solution In an effort to attract new business customers to NBT Bank, PHG aligned with the client on the key markets in which the acquisition was taking place. The strategy was to review the customer list of the branches in each of those key markets and highlight key success stories of those customers.
