  • FiComm also welcomes Christopher Norton as  Creative Director to oversee new creative services suite for clients
  • New website, brand also unveiled as financial  advisory focused communications firm continues rapid growth

FiComm Partners, LLC, a communications consulting firm focused on serving the independent financial advisory community, today announced the addition of two senior communications professionals, a new website and logo, as well as access to a new creative services suite for clients. The firm also added two PR team members to its rapidly growing New York team. The firm has averaged over 61% annual growth since co-founders Jason Lahita and Megan Carpenter merged their two independent consulting practices in June 2013, and now employs 10 team members in addition to the principals. 

Eric Reiss, Chief of Operations, joins the team from Hill + Knowlton Strategies (a subsidiary of the WPP Group), where he managed media relations, public affairs and government relations programs for energy and financial services companies directing engagements on behalf of Deloitte, Constellium, Nuclear Energy Institute, Cintas, and others. He will be responsible for the growth and development of the mid-town Manhattan office as well as the continued growth and development of the firm nationwide. 

"In Eric, we feel we've found the leader we've been looking for to take FiComm to the next level and manage our communications team as we continue to grow and evolve our client-service and accountability oriented approach," said Megan Carpenter, co-founder. "We feel we are the most results-driven, metrics-focused financial communications firm period, let alone in our niche market. This must never change no matter what our growth rate -- we are determined to earn the reputation that we've built, every day, and Eric will help us to achieve this." 

FiComm also welcomes Christopher Norton to the team, in the role of Creative Director. Christopher has extensive experience as an innovative, multidisciplinary creative director, and has worked with a wide array of large and independent financial services clients. Christopher's expertise is found in the inner workings of branding, video and web design. Prior to joining FiComm, Christopher was Creative Director at Blu Giant, a NorthStar Financial Services subsidiary and sister company to CLS Investments and Orion Advisor Services. 

New creative services will include:

  • Creative consulting
  • Identity design: custom logo and branding guide
  • Business cards, letterhead, brochures
  • Custom and theme based websites
  • Video production
  • Animation

FiComm has also added a Communications Manager as well as a Communications Associate since January 2016.

"FiComm has evolved to offer more end-to-end communications support, in response to the demand from our existing clients," said Jason Lahita, co-founder. "We were built on the foundation of exceptional PR services, but our clients are looking for that same caliber of service across a number of integrated marketing offerings. By adding a creative suite of services to our messaging, PR, content marketing and inbound marketing competencies, there is nothing we cannot do for clients who want a fully integrated communications machine at their disposal."

FiComm also modified its logo and launched a new company website to reflect the full services offering and unique approach. 

Reiss concludes: "As a member of one of the largest communications firms in the world, I have worked with dynamic global clients in the financial services sector and have overseen the development of exceptional PR teams. I am looking forward to applying my knowledge and skill set at FiComm, a firm with limitless potential and a special way of doing business."
