The Partnership, Atlanta’s oldest privately-held marketing and brand communications agency’s owner and CEO, Amanda Lucey was recently named to the National Small Business Association (NSBA) Leadership Council. NSBA is the nation’s oldest small-business advocacy organization and operates on a staunchly nonpartisan basis. Lucey, a recognized leader in the small-business community, joins the NSBA Leadership Council alongside other small-business advocates from across the country as they work to promote the interests of small business to policymakers in Washington, D.C.
“As a small-business owner with locations in two vastly different markets, I understand the importance of getting involved and being active when it comes to laws and regulation,” stated Lucey. “Joining the NSBA Leadership Council will enable me to take our collective small-business message to the people that need to hear it most, the decision makers on a national level in Congress.”
A recent recipient of the Inc. 5000 Top US Private Small Businesses and Cobb Chamber of Commerce Top 25 Small Business Award for two consecutive years, Lucey understands the need to protect, manage and enhance companies’ reputation. She serves as CEO of The Partnership, providing strategic public relations, marketing, branding and corporate communications for clients, companies and government institutions at a national and international level for over 20 years.
Lucey joined the NSBA Leadership Council as part of her efforts to tackle the many critical issues facing small businesses, including tax reform, regulatory restraint, health care costs, and how access to capital impacts small businesses. The NSBA Leadership Council is focused on providing valuable networking between small-business advocates from across the country while ensuring small business a seat at the table as Congress and regulators take up key small-business proposals.
“I am proud to have Amanda Lucey as part of our leadership council,” stated Todd McCracken, NSBA President and CEO. “She came to us highly recommended, and I look forward to coordinated efforts for years to come.”
