RRC grads clean up at national marketing awards in Whistler

June 17, 2013

Made up entirely of Red River College grads, the marketing department at Sunova Credit Union proved a force to be reckoned with at this year’s Achievement in Marketing Excellence (AIME) Awards Gala, where they picked up a whopping 10 honours, including Best in Show.

The awards gala took place May 28 in Whistler, B.C., and was hosted by the Marketing Association for Credit Unions (MACU) to celebrate the best in credit union marketing from across Canada.

Sunova’s marketing team is comprised of four RRC grads: Marketing Director Vanessa Foster (Creative Communications, 2000), Marketing Coordinator Alexandra Rachey (CreComm, 2009), Graphic Designer Angela Taylor (Advanced Graphic Design, 2009) and Communications Coordinator Tim Horn (CreComm, 2012).

“Having an in-house marketing department has always given us the freedom to truly experiment and have fun with our brand,” says Foster. “I think that our success at MACU’s AIME Awards Gala further speaks to Sunova’s fantastic culture and the talent of our staff.”

This is the third year in a row that Sunova has taken home awards from the AIME event, which drew more than 170 entries in 16 different categories from credit unions across Canada.
