Capital Bank Employees Take Company Advice to Heart to Help Hurricane Relief Efforts

September 13, 2017         By: Payment Week

ROCKVILLE, Md., Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Capital Bank, N.A., employees are making the most of leadership’s encouragement to “think outside the bank.” They are inspiring cardholders of the OpenSky® Secured Visa® Credit Card, a division of Capital Bank, to give to Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma relief efforts – and are matching donations up to $20,000 total.

Through a series of emails, Facebook ads, and Facebook posts rolling out this week, cardholders are invited to donate to the American Red Cross disaster relief fund by using their OpenSky credit cards. OpenSky will track donations and match them dollar-for-dollar, up to a total combined donation of $20,000.

“The two key things that set Capital Bank apart from the competition are our talent and our entrepreneurial culture,” said Ed Barry, CEO. “So when valued employees came to me and said, ‘we want to launch a campaign that works with our OpenSky cardholders to help those impacted by the hurricanes,’ I said great, let’s do it!”

The Maryland-based regional bank has gone through a period of rapid, strategic growth over the past five years, increasing its commercial lending and mortgage banking territories and expanding to adjacent markets. The OpenSky division was acquired just prior to that time frame. Since then their market share in secured credit cards has increased and the card’s profile and reputation have gone up exponentially, mostly through customer-focused social media and consumer credit websites.

“I’m very proud of our team coming up with this idea to help the people of Texas, Florida, and other affected areas, some of whom are our card customers,” said Barry. “Our corporate goals have always included equipping employees with the skills to collaborate, innovate, and give back to the communities we serve.”
