We have an opportunity here to spark further engagement with an iconic bank. We are excited to have the opportunity to transform Amalgamated Bank’s social media work so that it speaks directly to the issues so many of us are concerned with.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) June 12, 2013
Amalgamated Bank, founded in 1923 by the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America, has a long history of supporting progressive causes and working families. The first bank to offer free checking accounts in 1973, Amalgamated Bank is continuing its traditions of strengthening communities, people, organizations and businesses.
Samantha Berg, the recently appointed Chief Marketing Officer of Amalgamated Bank, believes there is an opportunity to further leverage social media outlets such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+ to deliver the Bank’s unique message and to bring together the communities that the Bank serves. The Bank previously used social media primarily to tout new products and services as well as share the Bank’s involvement in corporate governance work. Going forward, the Bank sees an opportunity to engage socially conscious individuals in dialogue around key topics such as workers’ rights, living wages, union advocacy, immigration, financial education and corporate governance and accountability.
“We are pleased to announce Spartan Systems has joined Amalgamated Bank as our social media agency,” said Samantha Berg. “Spartan is uniquely positioned as a social media consulting firm that cares about progressive issues, while understanding how to drive conversations and improve communications among our key constituents.”
Spartan Systems founder Benjamin Wald comments, “We have an opportunity here to spark further engagement with an iconic bank. We are excited to have the opportunity to transform Amalgamated Bank’s social media work so that it speaks directly to the issues so many of us are concerned with.”
