Lead Bank earns Website of the Year accolades

About 30,000 votes determined 13 winners for excellence in website, digital experience, creativity, design, user experience and functionality — among them is Kansas City’s Lead Bank.

The award comes as part of Progress‘ Sitefinity 2019 Website of the Year Awards.  Winners were selected based on the highest number of votes received during the public voting process.

This year, 39 websites developed using Progress Sitefinity were nominated across 13 categories, and Lead Bank took the title for the Financial Services section.

Local digital agency ZIV is responsible for implementing the website, a partnership that Lead Bank’s Chief Marketing Officer and senior vice president Melissa Beltrame says is a “perfect fit.”

“ZIV’s values align with Lead Bank’s values, making it a perfect fit,” Beltrame said. “(ZIV’s) creative approach to building relationships through website experiences is what we were looking for.

“We’re also very excited to be working with a locally female-owned agency in greater Kansas City,” she continued. “ZIV has been successful in elevating our client’s online user experience.”

ZIV’s founder and Chief Creative Strategist, Cara Miller, said the firm was “honored” to work with Lead Bank.

“They focus on relationship building, giving back and the success of their customers and community,” she said. “With an organization that embodies goodness and care, it made it important to convey this through the website design, creating a snapshot of their physical brand experience and mission.”

Twelve other winners besides Lead Bank won awards in the following categories: multisite, e-commerce, health care, education, public sector, manufacturing, services, technology, associations and nonprofit, sports and entertainment, travel and tourism, and graphic design.
