Joint Venture Between SS+K and Bully Pulpit Interactive

New York-based social media agency SS+K has entered into a joint venture with D.C.-based online marketing firm Bully Pulpit Interactive.

Bully Pulpit Interactive was founded by Andrew Bleecker, the former director of online advertising for the Obama campaign and the director of new media for the inauguration.

The move expands SS+K’s D.C. presence, with the firm moving to a new Rhode Island Ave office in January. In addition, there are new additions to the outpost, including Graves Spindler, a former new media director at the Department of Homeland Security who is joining as an account supervisor.
