Flagstar Bank Launches Brand Advertising With 2008 Olympics
Campaign Reflects Flagstar's Progressive and Innovative Approach to Delivering Banking Services
TROY, Michigan (PRWEB) August 8, 2008 -- Flagstar Bank will begin its most significant brand advertising effort to date when a new campaign debuts Friday, August 8, during the televised opening ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics. The campaign includes television, print, radio, Web and in-branch advertising and is scheduled to run in Flagstar Bank's three banking states of Michigan, Indiana and Georgia.
The concept of the TV commercial plays to the unique experience Flagstar provides its customers. The introductory 30-second commercial depicts consumers with boxes on their heads who need to "open their eyes" to the refreshing service and product offering from Flagstar.
"Our customer satisfaction ratings outpace the industry," said David Joyce, first vice president--marketing director at Flagstar. "Our brand promise centers on the idea that it's not banking as usual at Flagstar. We are essentially communicating the reality of what our customers are experiencing every day at Flagstar."
"Our new campaign theme line, 'The New Wave in Banking,' reflects our genuine understanding that people are different and want different things from their bank," Joyce said.
SMZ Advertising in Troy created the campaign. "This new branding not only positions Flagstar as innovative, but the advertising itself is innovative," said Jamie Michelson, president of SMZ. "The look, feel and tone are so original and arresting there soon won't be anyone who doesn't know of Flagstar and understand what Flagstar stands for."
The ad was directed by Michael Karbelnikoff who has also directed work for Sony PlayStation, Visa "NFL.com," Pepsi, Miller Lite and Nike. It was produced by Hello & Company.

History of Flagstar
Our origins go back to 1938. That's when Security Savings & Loan, a predecessor to Flagstar, opened for business at the corner of Francis and Otsego streets in Jackson, Mich., with $3.2 million in assets. Forty years later, in 1978, assets of Security Savings had reached $124 million.
Meanwhile, in 1968 our chairman, Thomas Hammond, founded his first mortgage company. He later went on to start other mortgage and financial service companies including Hammond Mortgage, Oak Hills Mortgage and First Security Mortgage. In 1987, Mr. Hammond acquired a thrift charter and formed First Security Bank, located in Bloomfield Hills, Mich. In its first year of operation, First Security had $3 million in assets and one branch, primarily focused on funding regional retail and wholesale mortgage operations.
In 1992, First Security expanded its home lending operations nationally, and the following year formed a holding company. In 1994, First Security acquired Security Savings of Jackson, our only acquisition to date. With this acquisition, we gained six additional branches and started expanding our banking network. In 1996, we changed our name to Flagstar to reflect our diversified businesses and national scope.
In 1997, we held our Initial Public Offering with a listing on the Nasdaq.
In 2000, we moved to our new headquarters in Troy, Mich. That same year, we entered an agreement with Wal-Mart to open in-store branches at select Wal-Mart stores, and we subsequently opened our first banking center in Indiana at a Wal-Mart in Indianapolis.
In 2001, we moved our listing to the New York Stock Exchange where we currently trade under the symbol FBC.
In 2005, we entered Georgia with the opening of a banking center in Powder Springs.
From $3 million in assets in 1987, we have grown our assets to $15.8 billion at December 31, 2007. We also greatly expanded our home lending to include 143 offices in 27 states, while growing our banking network to 164 offices — 117 in Michigan, 28 in Indiana, and 19 in Georgia at year-end 2007.
