The San Jose Network, Ltd. (SJN), the largest marketing communications group servicing cultural convergent markets, welcomes a new affiliate, Kelly, Scott & Madison (KSM) and its subsidiary, digital media specialists Fuor Digital, to its network. Both entities join The San Jose Network in its approach to today’s convergent market. Its approach serves the consumer landscape that is shifting from a traditional majority to an increasingly mixed market of Hispanic, General, Asian-American and African-American, and focuses on multiple marketing solutions in both traditional and digital arenas.
“With today’s new majority and expanding digital landscape actively engaging them, the touch points for today’s consumers are far and wide, making the ability to have a conversation with them that much more complicated,” stated George L. San Jose, president and chairman of SJN. “Kelly, Scott & Madison’s expertise in integrating all media platforms, including Fuor Digital’s digital emphasis, solidifies SJN’s total convergent market approach that will allow our clients to appropriately engage with various audiences.”
Effective and efficient consumer engagement is at the core of KSM’s media management philosophy. It has successfully managed and developed some of the most respected and influential brands in America through both direct-to-clients and agency partner relationships. KSM’s subsidiary, Fuor Digital, specializes in all aspects of digital marketing including planning, buying, competitive analysis, search marketing, viral marketing and mobile and emerging media strategies and tactics.
“The San Jose Network and its respective agency partners strengthens our competitive advantage and provides our clients a depth and breadth of experience in multicultural markets,” said Jonathan Lichter, partner/chief strategy officer for KSM.
