Detroit, MI (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
Marketing communications agency Campbell Ewald (CE) announced today that it has been selected as the talent acquisition marketing agency for Edward Jones, a leader in financial services. The review, conducted by SRI, was initiated last fall after Edward Jones implemented an aggressive new talent acquisition strategy.
The scope of work is national and will focus on integrated communication strategies to achieve Edward Jones’ recruiting goal: To reach 20,000 financial advisors by the year 2020. CE has been tasked with providing strategic, creative, media, digital and event marketing services. Spend is not being disclosed.
“This is a great win for us,” said Barbara Yolles, Chief Marketing Officer at CE. “Edward Jones is a unique and growing investment firm, focusing on personal relationships and long-term investment strategies. We look forward to helping expand the ranks of its financial advisors nationwide.”
"We felt the need to partner with an agency that truly understands our brand and what differentiates us from the competition,” said John Rahal, general partner responsible for Edward Jones Talent Acquisition. “We felt CE demonstrated the ability to develop an exceptional strategic vision that will help us attract the types of financial advisors who will best serve our existing and future clients.”
This win comes on the heels of a new business streak for CE, which was recently awarded global brand strategy and creative duties for Zipcar.
