Customers Bank, a top 100 bank with around $20 billion in assets, made the news at the end of last year for its fintech-focused rebrand.
The rebrand came following the bank’s participation in almost 350,000 PPP loans (amounting to an aggregate value of around $10 billion) and the launch of its blockchain-based RTP platform for digital asset and cryptocurrency companies (which amounted to $1.5 billion in deposits).
With these being two pretty darn fintech-y domains, the company decided to take the leap and make its look more tech-infused. According to senior vp of digital marketing Adam Bell, who joined the company in July 2021, the new brand identity involves finding the balance between high-community and high-tech.
“It’s about how do we maintain that balance of being high-tech and high-touch, and still have that spirit of community that wowed our customers before,” he said.
