Syracuse, N.Y. — BHG, a source of innovative financial solutions and the creator of one of the largest community bank loan and product networks in the country, recognized two leaders with a Sales & Marketing Excellence Award (SMEA). Emily Bowe, Vice President of Product Marketing, and Renee Keller, Director of Sales, were honored by Central New York Sales & Marketing Executives (CNYSME) for exemplifying professional excellence and going above and beyond in their daily roles.
Bowe joined BHG in 2019 as Vice President of Content, and quickly expanded her role to oversee brand initiatives for BHG’s suite of financial solutions. Today, she is the Vice President of Product Marketing and is responsible for building and executing strategic marketing campaigns to drive the success of BHG and its family of brands.
“After joining BHG only two years ago, Emily has become one of my strongest leaders, said Chris Panebianco, Chief Marketing Officer of BHG and 2018 SMEA recipient. “Not only does she play a key role in the growth of our products, but in building her team of product marketers, event coordinators, and copywriters. I look forward to seeing Emily continue to thrive at BHG and helping establish our next layer of leadership for the company.”
Keller joined BHG in 2015, and has held roles in customer service, credit card sales and management, SBA lending, and core loan processing. In 2021, Keller was promoted to Director of Sales where she is responsible for supporting the sales team and providing the resources needed to reach and exceed performance goals.
“Renee has extensive knowledge of our business, and her growth trajectory allows her to be a strong asset and coach to our sales team,” said Zach Raus, President of BHG’s Lending Division and 2019 SMEA recipient. “In each opportunity presented to Renee, she’s proven to be a top performer, excelling at providing a best-in-class experience to BHG’s borrowers and continually ranking as one of the company’s top financing specialists.”
Since 1997, The SMEA has recognized Central New York’s ‘best and brightest’ employees who continually excel in understanding the customer and market, conveying a positive company image, quality of presentation, attaining objectives, and community involvement.
