June 29, 2021

BOSTON, June 29, 2021 – BackBay Communications, a financial services focused integrated public relations, content development, and digital marketing agency, is pleased to announce that it has been recognized by three industry award programs, the Stevie® Awards, the Bell Ringer Awards, and the Industry Awards, for its work on long-term client Fiduciary Trust Company’s content-based marketing campaign to guide clients through the pandemic with trustworthy and reliable information and thought leadership.

With the onset of the pandemic in late February 2020, Fiduciary Trust Company (FTC), a privately owned wealth management firm focused on families, individuals and nonprofits, and BackBay Communications, launched an intensive content-based marketing and communications campaign. BackBay and FTC worked in partnership to quickly distribute 35 content pieces from late February through mid-July 2020, from 16 authors, in five formats, within the first five months of the pandemic.

The Stevie® Awards, which recognizes top businesses worldwide, honored BackBay’s content marketing work with a Bronze Stevie award in the category of Marketing Campaign of the Year: Financial Products & Services. The PR Club of New England, which hosts the annual Bell Ringer Awards to honor outstanding achievement in the PR and marketing industry, recognized BackBay with a Bronze Award in its communication campaigns division.

BackBay was also named a finalist for the 2021 Industry Awards in the category of Digital Campaign of the Year. The Awards recognize outstanding achievement, product innovation and leadership by organizations and individuals serving the financial advisor community.

“We are excited and honored to be recognized for our work helping Fiduciary Trust communicate to its clients and other parties timely and relevant information and thought leadership during a challenging time,” said Bill Haynes, Founder and CEO of BackBay Communications.

“BackBay has significantly contributed to the success of our content-based marketing and communications campaign and helped us to reach our key audiences during a time when the situation was changing rapidly, and reliable information was at a premium,” said Todd Eckler, Chief Marketing Officer at Fiduciary Trust Company.
