Six Spoke Media Enters Their Sixth Year With an Invite-only Celebration on the Evening of August 28th

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 15, 2014

Six Spoke Media, a performance-focused, global digital advertising agency, announced that it surpassed its fifth anniversary last month. Over the last five years, weve not only beat the odds, but weve also built a thriving and growing agency that I strongly believe puts us in the best-in-class segment, says CEO Edward Kim, who has previously built sales and services agencies with Digital Impact (acquired by Acxiom) and as the founding CEO of Red Bricks Media (acquired by Geary Interactive).

Five years ago, Edward Kim founded Six Spoke Media with the vision of building a new breed of agency for a new age. He believed that this age required brands to think differently, to bridge data science with performance design, to think of their customers as empowered, connected, and vocal, and to respond with an approach that he coined as Discoverability Marketing.

As Kim states, With each new disruptive technology, whether it’s the latest app, social media network, or device, customers are increasingly empowered to research products and services, connect with peers, discuss with industry experts, voice their support of or discontent for brands and so much more. In this new environment, brands need to know how to join and facilitate these conversations and rise above the clutter and chaos to be discoverable when customers are making decisions.

Today, Six Spoke Media is much more than a typical agency. Given Kims mathematics background and tenure in consulting at PwC, Six Spoke Media has hired a diverse and talented group of ex-consultants, quant-driven data scientists, and performance-oriented creative whizzes to build a true business consultancy that sees marketing and advertising as not an end in itself, but as a means to solving its clients business problems and challenges.

Utilizing its Discoverability Marketing approach, Six Spoke Media has won the business of Global 2000 companies and many of the fastest-growing startups alike. Six Spoke Systems, Six Spoke Medias proprietary integrated ecommerce platform, has now driven millions of dollars in ecommerce transactions, and allows clients on the platform to utilize fully customizable ecommerce solutions, integrated marketing, and robust analytics.

Six Spokes Managing Director, Becca Vittetoe, says, Six Spoke Medias fifth anniversary is a tremendous milestone for the company. Over the past five years, weve introduced incredible innovation into the industry, from our ecommerce technology to our six-step methodology for a research-based approach to social media marketing. Weve always looked for better ways to approach marketing, from our algorithmic approach to optimizing search and display campaigns, to utilizing second and third party data to target consumers more effectively, to building out our own trading desk to provide our clients with the most efficient media costs.

Kim adds, To Six Spokes employees and customers, it has been a wonderful five years of accomplishment. I thank you for your commitment, dedication, and loyalty to Six Spoke Media and our unique corporate culture, and to our commitment of achieving excellence. Weve done amazing things together, but the best is still yet to come.”

To commemorate this milestone, Six Spoke is celebrating their fifth anniversary on the evening of August 28th with their valued clients and friends. The western saloon themed event will be held at Aventine Taverna in San Francisco’s Financial District.

Lourdes Expands Military Partnership with Veterans

Camden, NJ (PRWEB) July 28, 2014

Lourdes Health System has partnered with a federal program to provide enhanced access and reduced wait times for veterans needing medical care.

Lourdes is one of only six hospital systems in the stateand the only one in Camden, Burlington and Gloucester countiesparticipating in the HealthNet Federal Services Patient-Centered Community Care program (PC3). PC3 gives veterans access to specialty care when the local Veterans Administration (VA) hospital cannot provide services due to lack of available specialists, long wait times or when there is an extraordinary distance from the patients home.

It is unfortunate that our military veterans often have to wait weeks or months to get care, said Alexander J. Hatala, Lourdes Health System President and CEO. We have extensive experience providing care to service members at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst and elsewhere, so participating in the PC3 program is a natural part of our mission. It is an honor to serve the men and women whose service and dedication preserve our freedom.

Lourdes is contracted to provide services to veterans under PC3 in Gloucester, Camden, Burlington and Mercer counties, parts of Ocean County, parts of Bucks County and Philadelphia.

If an eligible veteran visits a VA provider and needs specialty care unavailable at the VA or the VA cannot meet the wait time standards, the veteran is then referred to the PC3 network. Following the normal referral process, Lourdes Department of Military Affairs patient navigators make an appointment and the veteran is seen by a physician or services are rendered within 48 hourssometimes the same day if necessary.

Healthcare services covered under the new program (PC3) include:
