TEMPE, Ariz. (April 29, 2015) – Zion & Zion one of Arizona’s top ranked full-service advertising agencies continues to expand its breadth of work across the country by adding New Mexico-based BANK 34 (Nasdaq: ALMG), held by Alamogordo Financial Corp., to its agency roster.

“I have always maintained there are far more banks than there are great banking teams in our industry, and from my experience the same holds true in the marketing communications industry,” said Bill Kauper, president of Bank 34. “There are more general marketing firms than there are great strategically aligned creative teams like ZION & ZION.”

With multiple locations in New Mexico and its recent expansion into Arizona and Texas, BANK 34 has been providing financial services to individuals and businesses since its opening more than 80 years ago. As a full-service community bank, it offers sophisticated financial products while emphasizing prompt, personalized customer service.

As BANK 34’s agency of record, Zion & Zion was hired to focus on the rebranding efforts of the bank since its merger with Bank 1440 in Aug. 2014. The agency will work with BANK 34 to develop a brand that speaks to its current and new customers, while allowing for new product offerings and growth in expansion markets including Arizona.

“Banking institutions are in the business of providing financial security to clients. At Zion & Zion, we provide sound strategic thinking and creative execution, leading clients to feeling secure in the brand building process,” said Zion & Zion CEO Aric Zion. “We look forward to working with Bank ’34 and to assisting with its successful growth.”
