Coastal Bank and Trust, a division of Synovus Bank, is the most recent company to partner with Pensacola Bay Center, managed by SMG. As of July 2013, the bank is the exclusive partner of the venue in the financial category.
“Pensacola Bay Center is here for the community and we want to align ourselves with other organizations with similar missions. We were very selective on the companies we approached for this partnership. Coastal is a regional entity with a history of helping the community. Although we have been in talks with them for several months, we knew they were a perfect fit for us since the beginning,” stated Casey Sparks, Assistant General Manager and Director of Sales and Marketing.
Coastal Bank and Trust is now one of four major sponsors of the facility. They join West Florida, Coca-Cola and The Lewis Bear Company as an exclusive sponsor and partner.
“We at Coastal Bank and Trust are excited to partner with the Pensacola Bay Center,” stated Jim Mathis, CEO-Coastal Bank and Trust. “This sponsorship/advertising partnership fits nicely with our mission of promoting the premier banking franchise brand on the gulf coast with one of the most successful event venues in the country. We think it is a win-win for both of us.”
