Recently, the president of Fifth Third Bank (Tampa Bay), Brian Lamb, loosened his tie and loaned his skills to Brandon-based Logo ASAP Inc. – a family-owned and operated company that specializes in custom-designed T-shirts, uniforms, logo embroidery and “make your own T-shirt” printing. Lamb spent his morning with owners Tom and Michele Rumbaugh to gain a better understanding of the day-to-day needs of one of Fifth Third’s small business clients.
“We pride ourselves on rolling up our sleeves and digging in to truly get to know our clients,” Lamb said. “We make an effort to listen, understand and provide quality solutions for our customers. It’s important to know the challenges and banking needs of each business, and we’re curious to find the right ideas to help them run more efficiently. As Logo ASAP knows, one size does not fit all.”
Lamb took this philosophy one step further by experiencing it for himself. He spent the morning embroidering, screen printing and designing his own “limited edition” T-shirt, which will be sold to Fifth Third employees to raise money for Logo ASAP’s choice charity – Cynthia Pinckney Ministries.
“We are thrilled that Brian took time out of his busy schedule to spend it with us at Logo ASAP,” said Tom Rumbaugh. “It’s nice to know that our bank is taking a vested interest in our business and is looking for ways to understand us better.”
