The company that was formed through the merger of Fiducia and GAD operates as an IT service provider to all 1,100 German Cooperative Banks, the central institutions of the cooperative FinanzGruppe and numerous private and specialized banks.
As part of the new assignment of the account, Fink & Fuchs PR prevailed in an agency pitch and will be helping the company with its external company communications from now on.
