January 2007 – Client of The Month – First Financial

What’s in a name? The answer, as business leaders know, is a lot, and HOLDCOM’s Message-On-Hold services played an integral part in helping First Financial promote awareness in their new name and ease the transition from the old to the new. For their effective use of HOLDCOM’s audio marketing services, combined with their seventy years of fulfilling their mission “to provide the highest level of quality products and personalized services while maintaining financial integrity and stability, thus enriching the quality of our Members’ lifestyles,” we are proud to honor them as Client of the Month.
