SUNRISE, Fla. – Sunrise Sports & Entertainment announced today that BankAtlantic has signed a multi-year agreement as the inaugural corporate partner of the SSE Media Network.

The SSE Media Network is the industry’s first fully integrated sports and entertainment programming medium, providing sponsors with unique marketing and advertising opportunities that drive measurable results and return on investment.
“We are proud and honored to have BankAtlantic as our first fully integrated SSE Media Network partner,” Yormark said. “BankAtlantic and its President & CEO, Mr. Jarett Levan, have been great supporters of ours for some time, so it’s no surprise that they are the first to subscribe to the vision, as well as the potential return on investment, of the SSE Media Network.”
As part of this agreement, which is in addition to BankAtlantic’s preexisting Premier Pillar Partnership with SSE, “Florida’s Most Convenient Bank” will received exposure through all of the SSE Media Network’s available channels including Fox Sports Florida, 790 the Ticket, Comcast, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube,, and more.
In addition, the SSE Media Network and BankAtlantic will launch the “Brunch with Beezer” promotion, in which fans will have the opportunity to enter to win a trip to Toronto to have brunch with Panthers great John Vanbiesbrouck at the Hockey Hall of Fame.
“We believe in SSE not only as a great and innovative partner of ours, but also as an important member of the South Florida community,” Levan said. “Michael Yormark and his staff are the best at what they do, in this case helping to exponentially increase awareness for our company, and what we provide our customers. So, in the end, it was no-brainer for BankAtlantic to once again align ourselves with SSE and the Media Network.”
