Read what some of our clients have to say about us…

AUTO LOAN CLIENT - REGIONAL federal credit union Hammond, Indiana

“We partnered with Stellar Strategic and launched the Stellar Auto Loan program in January 2019. The team at Stellar has been great to work with from the implementation into the ongoing marketing campaigns. We have met several times to review results and make adjustments to ensure the program is as successful as possible. As a result, we have seen applications submitted through multiple channels including our Call Center, walk-in applications at our branches and via the Stellar Application Portal. To date, we have received over 120 applications, booked over $1.4 million in loans and are running a 50% Look-to-Book ratio. The program has been a great compliment to our marketing efforts.”

Michael Peters
Executive Vice President 

ODP CLIENT - Beacon Credit Union Lynchburg, Virginia

“We engaged Stellar Strategic for our mailing needs from a recommendation of another company. We were very happy with the customer service provided, the reasonable cost of services and the OUTSTANDING representative that we were assigned. Not only are all of our questions answered quickly and precisely, but Stellar Strategic has made several cost and time saving suggestions as our relationship has grown and they see our needs!”

“A recommendation has turned into a fantastic partnership between companies and we look forward to a long relationship. If you are looking for a company to work WITH you and not just FOR you, contact Stellar Strategic!”

Kelly Linn
Overdraft Privilege Manager

DEPOSIT DIRECT CLIENT - Interra Credit Union Goshen, Indiana

“Interra Credit Union is proud to partner with Stellar Strategic Group since 2011. The team’s professionalism and data capabilities help to support the validity of using Stellar to reach new membership.”

DEPOSIT DIRECT and ODP CLIENT - Independent Bank Grand Rapids, Michigan

“Over the last few years, we have found a true partnership with Stellar Strategic Group. Our checking acquisition program is now more defined and data-driven compared to a previous vendor program. We also utilize them for our overdraft compliance notifications via a combination of both mail and email, which has reduced our cost significantly. The personal attention and service we receive is also second to none. When we are considering additional marketing programs, Stellar Strategic is our go-to vendor.”

Tricia Raquepaw, CFMP

AUTO LOAN CLIENT - Oklahoma Educators Credit Union Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

“Stellar has been a great strategic partner for our institution, its unique strategy provides an opportunity to capture current performing loans. Since the program allows direct communication with the potential members, stronger underwriting capabilities are more easily maintained and the ability to cultivate deeper relationships with borrowers is accelerated. Most credit unions are looking for loan growth, but fear the risky nature of the indirect lending arena. Steller has found a way to drive loan volume with borrowers that have demonstrated ability to service the credit being extended. I often joke with their Founding Partner, George Monnier, that our Stellar Auto Loan relationship helps us to obtain LIFERS instead of just LOANERS.”

Trent Vaughn
Senior Vice President

DEPOSIT DIRECT CLIENT - Greenville Federal Bank Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

“Our digital numbers look fantastic and I am seeing a gradual increase in page views as well on Google Analytics. I was just talking in our marketing meeting how I’ve seen a complete flip in the demographic viewing our website is experiencing from last year at this time. We are now seeing more 30-45 year olds clicking on our website compared to last year (which was dominated by the 50-65+ age group). I think this can be largely attributed to the digital marketing in our Troy market.”

About Us


Since 2000, Stellar Strategic Group has helped over 1,800 financial institutions execute effective marketing and communication strategies.
A few words from our Founder, Craig Simmers:

Our Beginning


In 2000, I had a vision of applying what I had developed in the newspaper industry to acquire new customers and duplicate it in the banking industry. Never did I envision we would have been fortunate enough to have worked with over 1,800 institutions since that time and achieved a 98.5% satisfaction rate.

Relationships


Achieving strong, long-lasting relationships with our clients is a top priority for Stellar Strategic. Simply stated, we continually evolve our product line to meet the ever changing market demands our clients face. Plus, we work to deliver the projected ROI promised, and treat your budget as if it’s our own. The bottom line is that we care about each of our clients and it shows in how we partner with you to achieve your goals every step of the way.

Market Growth


Today we offer a suite of products that do one thing extremely well. That one thing is helping our clients grow retail market share at a pace that exceeds that of their competitors. If you have an interest in working with a company that successfully combines traditional marketing approaches with the ever-changing digital marketing revolution, Stellar Strategic Group can help.

Partnerships


If you appreciate working with a partner as opposed to a vendor, Stellar Strategic Group is definitely that company. I treat every client relationship the way I appreciated being treated when I was on your side of the table. You’re the boss! Let’s discuss how we may be able to assist you in substantially increasing your market share.
