TORONTO, ON (August 23, 2021) – Symcor is pleased to announce that its recent marketing campaign, Head-Snap, has been selected as a Silver award winner by the 2021 Association of National Advertisers (ANA) B2 Awards, in the Corporate Branding Campaign category.

The ANA B2 Awards recognize excellence in results-driven marketing, awarding top performing B2B marketing efforts that deliver demonstrable success and market impact. It is the industry’s most prestigious awards program dedicated solely to B2B marketing and communications. The Corporate Branding Campaign category, open to global participants, recognizes organizations, teams or brands that put brand positioning at the center of comprehensive campaigns to drive business growth.

“We wanted to create a bold marketing campaign that strengthened brand awareness and changed outdated market perceptions through ‘head-snap’ creative, impactful messaging and a highly targeted media plan,” said Rita Dias, VP Marketing & Corporate Communications at Symcor. 

Symcor’s B2B marketing campaign showcased the organization’s unique value proposition: its expertise to accelerate industry-wide change and the track record to execute it. 

“Two years ago, we undertook a brand transformation to reflect a ‘new’ Symcor and reinforce our expanded capabilities. Consistently showcasing our differentiators in our marketing campaigns have helped shape our brand reputation, drive demand generation and communicate the long-term value of our organization,” said Donna Kinoshita, SVP & Chief Strategy Officer, Symcor.

Earlier this year, Symcor was also recognized as a winner of the 2020 Summit Marketing Effectiveness Award in the Financial Marketing category for the second consecutive year.
