CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: FCS Financial Marketer of the Year Award

The Call for Nominations for the 15th Anniversary FCS Financial Marketer of the Year Award is now open.


The FCS Financial Marketer of the Year Award recognizes innovation, creativity and impact in the financial services marketplace, and rewards the marketer and the marketing leader responsible.

The 2020 Award will celebrate a strong marketer and its marketing executive who have provided an inspiring example of how marketing and communications can advance a firm’s business objectives and elevate the standard for exceptional work in the marketplace – especially against the unprecedented challenges all industries faced this year.
