“Many of our clients based in the DFW area are sponsors of the North Texas Food Bank”, said Chairman and Founding Partner, Jack Thompson. “On behalf of Tango Management Consulting and Tango Analytics we are proud to have had the opportunity to join them in sponsoring NTFB’s 2013 campaign to fight hunger in North Texas.”
“There are a lot of opportunities for corporate citizenship, and what was important to us was finding an organization with a compelling mission and set of core values”, explained Partner and CMO, Bart Waldeck. “The NTFB’s core values of ‘do what needs to be done’ and ‘do what’s right with urgency’ align with Tango’s way of doing business so the partnership was a great fit.”
