SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Jamba Juice, a leading healthy, active lifestyle brand, has named Finn Partners as public relations and social media agency of record to bring its brand communication campaigns and its new whole food blending and juicing platform to media and consumers in the U.S.
Under the leadership of Julie S. Washington, senior vice president and chief brand officer for Jamba Juice, Finn Partners will manage proactive media relations and social media strategy for Jamba Juice, with a specific focus on promoting whole food blending and juicing. As part of this platform, Finn Partners will champion the company's commitment to inspire and simplify healthy living and help reverse Americans' well-documented fruit and veggie deficit.
"We believe Finn Partners brings the right skill-set to effectively manage our marketing and communications assets, while at the same time delivering high-quality results that help drive our business even further," said Washington.
According to Howard Solomon, managing partner, Finn Partners and head of its west coast operations, "This year, there's a whole new way to look at Jamba. They're going back to their roots, having started over twenty years ago under the moniker of Juice Club™. We'll be leveraging that heritage of juicing and incorporating even more fresh whole fruits and vegetables into their fresh juice offerings at more than 800 Jamba Juice stores across the U.S."
At the same time, the company is moving deeper into the mobile commerce arena and expanding its corporate social responsibility initiatives. With Team Up for A Healthy America and other key charitable initiatives, Jamba Juice will be maximizing the strength of health and fitness experts like Jake Steinfeld and Healthy Living Council members Venus Williams, Summer Sanders and Vernon Davis to bring to life the goodness of blending and juicing with whole foods.
The launch assignment is being led by Brenda Lynch, senior partner, Finn Partners, with the support of a team including staff from Finn Partners offices across the U.S.
