NEFCU Banks On Greater Awareness With Selection Of DeVito/Verdi As Its Advertising Agency

NEW YORK, Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NEFCU, a leading credit union serving Nassau and Suffolk counties, has named DeVito/Verdi its new advertising agency, signaling a strong intention to set itself apart among fellow credit unions and traditional banks on Long Island.  The hiring of the New York based advertising agency was announced today by Edward P. Paternostro, president and CEO of NEFCU.

NEFCU is currently the third largest credit union on Long Island.  The hiring of the award-winning ad agency is an indication that the credit union will be undertaking an aggressive campaign to attract new members, position itself as a smart and refreshing alternative to traditional banks, and gain share from its competitors.

"We are very excited to be working with such a creative agency like DeVito/Verdi," said Paternostro.  "At NEFCU, we provide our members with better products and services at significant savings.  Working with DeVito/Verdi will allow us to spread the word to more Long Islanders and introduce them to a better way to do their banking."

DeVito/Verdi was named the credit union's agency of record following a six-month review that was narrowed down to four finalists.

"This is one of the great 'finds' for consumers," said Ellis Verdi, president of DeVito/Verdi.  "Once a consumer understands all that NEFCU has to offer, there is really no reason to bank anywhere else.  It's an exciting opportunity for us."
