Cyphers Named Agency of Record for Taylor Bank

Cyphers Agency and Taylor BankANNAPOLIS, MD (March 16, 2016) — The Cyphers Agency announced it has been named agency of record for Taylor Bank, headquartered in Berlin, MD, with 10 locations on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and in Delaware. The agency will direct the bank’s entire communications program, beginning with an integrated marketing plan for the 125-year-old institution.

Cyphers was awarded the account following a competitive review that included the incumbent Virginia-based advertising agency and three other firms. The scope of work includes a full marketing plan with creative, media and digital strategies, internal communications, community relations and other marketing activities focused around quarterly promotions. The new marketing plan will kick off with a spring mortgage campaign.

“We are looking forward to building upon Taylor Bank’s solid foundation as a trusted neighborhood bank and communicating the brand’s messages in new ways to reach even more customers,” said Darren Easton, agency vice president and creative director. 

Founded in 1890 as the Calvin B. Taylor Banking Company, the bank continues to operate under a time-tested conservative operating philosophy that has led to its many years of success.

“For 125 years, this philosophy has proven to be the best way to return value to our stockholders, customers and our local communities,” said Raymond M. Thompson, president and CEO. “We chose Cyphers because we saw that they had the creativity, strategy and edge that would help us to take our marketing to the next level, while still holding true to the core fundamentals upon which Mr. Calvin B. Taylor founded the bank.” 

Taylor Bank offers a wide variety of consumer and business deposit and loan products, a full suite of electronic banking services such as internet and mobile banking and ancillary services such as merchant services, remote deposit capture and ACH origination.

Taylor Bank’s main office is located on North Main Street in Berlin, Md. The bank’s branches are located in Berlin, Ocean City, Pocomoke and Snow Hill in Maryland and Ocean View in Delaware.

A new Taylor Bank full-service branch is set to open this spring in the Ocean Landing Shopping Complex in Berlin to serve residents and businesses located in the northern Worcester County area.
