The issue of the magazine is the "Strategic Planning Issue." The magazine is read by over 15,000 community bank executives in the U.S. We'd like the focus to be photos of a specific bank, Thomaston Savings Bank--recently featured by Forbes on their list of America's best community banks and credit unions. https://www.forbes.com/sites/kurtbadenhausen/2018/06/28/the-best-banks-and-credit-unions-in-every-state/#3b560ed45025 Photos of Thomaston Savings Bank and of Steve Lewis (CEO) are attached. The attached copy file has a headline that reads "How They Did It: Thomaston Bank named #1 in customer experience by Forbes". This should be visually associated with the photo of Steve Lewis. Please also incorporate the cover copy attached.
