Garfield Group Named Among “20 Most Valuable Partners in Financial Marketing” Posted by Larry Garfield Jul 29 2016 All We’re excited to announce that we’ve earned a spot on Gramercy Institute’s 2016 list of “20 Most Valuable Partners in Financial Marketing.” Gramercy Institute, a leading network and think tank for senior marketers, connects thousands in the financial marketing industry and is the largest global network of senior financial marketers in the world. Each year, the organization solicits nominations from financial brands who want to acknowledge their marketing partners. Nominees are evaluated based on their contributions to innovation, customer support, and ability to deliver on expectations. Following nominations, an independent panel of nine judges from some of the world’s leading financial institutions — including BlackRock, Morgan Stanley, and Wells Fargo Bank— scores the essays and selects the top 20. A special thank you to Marty Dauer, CMO, Duff & Phelps, who nominated us. Duff & Phelps is one of the world’s most respected financial consulting firms, providing unmatched objectivity in areas such as valuation, corporate finance and compliance. “The team at Garfield Group has been a trusted partner to Duff & Phelps for several years,” said Dauer. “In addition to several outstanding design projects, most recently Garfield Group helped to develop an advertising concept that accurately reflected and creatively expressed my firm’s brand. Garfield Group’s strategic approach led me to something that is slated for an extensive internal and external campaign in 2017. I am very excited for the agency's inclusion as a Most Valuable Partner in Financial Marketing and look forward to working with them in the future.” Thank you, Marty. It takes a great partner to know one. The 2016 list also includes notables such as Marketo, Barron’s, New York Stock Exchange, and Quantcast. Check out Gramercy Institute’s press release for a complete list of the “Class of 2016,” and stay tuned for updates from the award ceremony we’ll be attending in New York City on September 29.
