Banking Choice Awards Presentation
The Banking Choice Awards recognize the banks that receive the highest ratings from their own customers in four categories:
Customer Service, Technology, Community Contribution, and Overall Quality.
The rankings are based upon the Banking Benchmarks®, the industry’s gold standard of customer experience measurement, conducted twice per year among hundreds of thousands of households and businesses to get their unbiased opinions of the institutions they bank with. For more information on how results were determined, visit the About section.
Banking Choice Awards will honor the top three institutions in each category from each region of New Jersey. At the Awards, we will also announce the overall Statewide winner in each category, the highest honor any bank in the State can achieve. Winners will also be announced in the industry and mainstream media.
Click the links below for a complete list of finalists within each region.
Your customers can choose to bank wherever they want. Find out who does it best at The Banking Choice Awards.
AMANDA BEARD, Seven Time Olympic Medalist, Model, Author, Entrepreneur
Amanda Beard made her first Olympic swimming appearance in 1996 at the age of 14. Beard won one gold and two silver medals at that first Olympic Games and has been a strong competitor since. She went on to win a gold medal, two silvers and a bronze at the next two Olympic Games. Beard is the winner of eight national titles and is a former world record holder.
Amanda has also made her mark outside of the pool, becoming much more than the 14-year-old Olympic gold medalist that carried her teddy bear around wherever she went. When she isn’t swimming, her energy is focused on being a mom to son Blaise and building her brand. She connects with mothers and fans through her blog, Swim Like a Mom, where she actively shares her passion for raising her son, her journey of motherhood, her favorite recipes and her secret to staying in great shape, in addition to her Olympic experience. As a huge advocate for living a healthy life and taking care of herself, Amanda is also currently a partial owner in Mission Skincare Products, a line designed for people with active lifestyles. The company endorses super stars, such as Dwayne Wade, Serena Williams and many other high-profile athletes.
In April 2012, Amanda released her first book, New York Times Best Seller “In The Water They Can’t See You Cry,” a riveting memoir revealing the truth behind the Olympic spotlight, the battles that she fought along the way and how she found the path that put her in the championship lane.
We are thrilled to announce that the following institutions placed in the top three positions in Overall Quality, Customer Service, Technology & Tools or Community Contribution for this year’s Banking Choice Awards for the state of New Jersey. We are not indicating (yet) which category or place (first, second or third) these banks have won – for that, you’ll have to attend the Banking Choice Awards being held on Monday, April 15th at Resorts Hotel & Casino on the eve of BankHorizons.
