A leader in specialized sports media in the Northeast, SeamansMedia Inc. features a portfolio of seven brands across baseball, golf, hockey, lacrosse, skiing, and soccer — a podcast network and two Emmy-nominated TV shows that reach the most passionate sports markets. They inspire and inform amateur athletes and their supporters by sharing compelling stories and insightful advice to help further their development throughout their careers.
Seamans Media is in a constant state of transformation and growth — adding new websites, embracing a digital-first strategy, and adding new platforms. When looking for a banking partner, Rick Daniels, Chief Operating Officer, SeamansMedia recognized that “we HAVE TO focus the preponderance of our resources, time and energy on trying to delight our customers.” Working with South Shore Bank allows Seamans Media to spend their resources focusing on their customers rather than banking issues, “South Shore Bank gets back to us very promptly and does not allow any critical issues to drop."
According to Rick, “South Shore Bank’s Commercial Banking Relationship Manager, Tom Osuch has enabled Seamans Media to dig deeper into our future plans and aspirations to produce Pro-forma ways we could fund our future expansion efforts.” Rick continued, “Tom was able to educate us and answer any questions we might have at any point in the process. We deeply trust Tom and his expertise and judgment.”
Tom values the relationship he’s built with the team at Seamans Media. According to Tom, “Eric Seamans, Founder, and CEO, and Rick Daniels have done a tremendous job educating me not only about SeamansMedia’s history, but SeamansMedia’s future and the need to adapt to an ever-changing digital environment. Their commitment to delivering the highest quality content in the industry is second to none and inspirational. It has been a tremendous pleasure being their game-planning teammate for continued growth and success in the future.”
SeamansMedia uses cash management services with South Shore Bank including remote deposits, cost-effective credit card payment processing as well as several advanced services that have improved their business and economics. Rick relies on Tom and the cash management specialist group. “The product specialists came to our offices to get us comfortable and trained in some of the enhanced services. Our goal was to find a new and much-improved financial partner who could help us with all (or nearly all) of our financial needs. It is 100% true in the most critical situations. South Shore Bank embraces the critical and indispensable position they hold with our clients.”
Rick’s “hope and belief is that South Shore Bank, being a South Shore-based, mutual institution will remain as accessible and helpful as they have been so far. I expect they will for a long time to come.”
