- Stephanie Dressler promoted to Vice President and Head of Digital Strategy -
NEW YORK, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dukas Public Relations (DPR), a leading financial public relations agency, announced today the launch of its social media practice group. The group will serve the growing need for social media counsel and digital strategy by asset management and financial services companies. As one of the leading financial public relations firms, DPR represents a broad range of clients including hedge funds, mutual funds, ETF sponsors, financial advisors, investment banks and professional services firms.
As part of this expansion, the firm has named Stephanie Dressler as Vice President and Head of Digital Strategy. In her new role, Ms. Dressler will be responsible for advising DPR clients on social media strategy, and integrating social media with existing public relations campaigns. She will also work to expand the practice as asset management and firms grow increasingly comfortable with using social media as a means to communicate.
"Social and digital media counsel is something our clients are increasingly demanding and I am excited to lead this burgeoning new practice," Ms. Dressler said. "The ten largest global asset managers-including BlackRock, Vanguard and Goldman Sachs-are now using social media to communicate with investors and clients, suggesting that despite tight regulations, investment firms have decidedly recognized the value in communicating across social channels."
The new practice group leverages DPR's proven track record in representing financial and investment companies, and combines that with a deep understanding of financial and business-focused social networks. The new group will provide a full set of services, including comprehensive digital presence audits, content creation and development, social community creation and expansion, SEO/web optimization, blogger outreach, video creation and promotion, client training, and social media measurement and analysis.
"Financial services firms have been slow adopters of social media, but that is quickly changing as they realize it is an essential component of an effective communications and marketing strategy," said Richard Dukas, President and CEO of DPR. "Our experience with complex investment strategies and situations and our understanding of the vast compliance landscape allow us to design and execute creative social campaigns while speaking the language that senior executives and compliance departments understand."
Ms. Dressler has nearly a decade of experience in financial marketing and communications. Prior to joining DPR in 2011, she was a senior associate at strategic communications consultancy, Montieth and Company. She also served in marketing communications roles at alternative investment management firm, Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors; and investment research firm, International Strategy and Investment. Ms. Dressler earned a B.A. from the University of Central Florida, and her M.S. in corporate communications from New York University, where she wrote her thesis on the evolution of social media in the financial services industry.
