NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 19, 2014) - The Steptoe Group, a veteran led firm offering online education for the healthcare providers caring for members of the military, today announced their partnership with Wasabi Rabbit, the New York-based brand and marketing agency. Focusing on The Steptoe Group's award-winning Warrior-Centric Healthcare Training (WCHT)® and "You Must Know Me to Treat Me"® program, Wasabi Rabbit will develop a go-to-market strategy and brand framework to support the company's digital retail practice. Wasabi Rabbit's founder and CEO, John Mustin, is a Captain in the US Navy reserve and a veteran of Operations ENDURING FREEDOM and IRAQI FREEDOM.
"As a veteran who builds services that support other veterans, it was especially important to me to work with someone who understands the unique demands and health challenges facing members of our military. John's military experience, coupled with Wasabi Rabbit's branding expertise and track record of success in representing veteran interests, made this an easy decision for us," said former Army officer and West Point graduate Ron Steptoe, CEO of The Steptoe Group.
The WCHT program is an interactive seminar for healthcare providers and service support personnel caring for members of the military and veterans with war-related injuries. Wasabi Rabbit will establish WCHT's leadership in the growing field of veteran healthcare by creating a compelling brand experience that healthcare providers and service support personnel can connect with, and promoting it with highly targeted campaigns.
"As a proud member of our nation's military for over 24 years, supporting veterans is always a high priority," said John Mustin, CEO of Wasabi Rabbit. "The opportunity to contribute to WCHT's growth allows us to combine our strategic insights and creativity with our commitment to military causes worldwide."
