Over the past year, the financial services industry has made big strides in how it approaches sales and marketing, reinventing itself in an increasingly social, mobile, and digital world.
That’s why we’re proud to see The Gramercy Institute and JFAM (The Journal of Financial Advertising & Marketing), which specialize in financial services marketing, honoring 20 Rising Stars in Financial Marketing, including some of our customers. From social media directors to CMOs to brand marketers and more, every marketing role has been tasked with adapting to transformations in the digital world.
Thank you to JFAM and the Gramercy Institute for acknowledging the achievements of the best marketers across some of the top insurance and financial services companies in the world. We hope these financial marketing “Rising Stars” will set an example for their peers across the industry.
