Midland States Bank in Effingham, Illinois, has experienced rapid growth over the past decade. The community bank has entered new markets and expanded its crucial employee base of knowledgeable people who truly care about the success of their clients. The bank’s internal leadership development team contacted Medalcraft Mint for gift ideas that would celebrate years of service milestones within the company.
This team of future company leaders was looking for options more distinctive than traditional plaques or trophies. Medalcraft Mint’s team, led by sales representative Sami LaCourt, suggested a selection of medallions designed to differentiate service milestones reached by Midland States Bank team members.
The items included a copper medallion with antique finish, white enamel and polished highlights for one year of service, bronze for three years of service, silver for five years of service, brass for 10 years, and bright 24kt gold-plated brass for 15 years.
“The Medalcraft Mint team was able to provide a host of robust options and color finishes that make the medallions stand out from each other,” comments Anna Strong, marketing specialist at Midland States Bank. “We had great customer service from Sami. She went the extra mile to make sure what we selected was within our original vision, and she worked to make that happen.”
