Challenge: Virginia Tech Land Development and Design Initiative’s activities have been funded almost exclusively through annual corporate sponsorship. With financial support on the decline, LDDI’s leaders recognized the need to enhance the program’s reputation among the private land development community.
Challenge: After 55 years in business, Roanoke, Virginia-based Branch & Associates, a general contracting firm, was facing tremendous competition in three markets where it has offices: Richmond, VA; Herndon, VA (Northern Virginia/metro DC); and Charlotte, NC. In the highly competitive construction field, name recognition is essential to winning new business. Senior leaders recognized a need to reintroduce the company in these new markets in order to grow business opportunities. Branch & Associates became Branch Builds – a name that better reflected the firm’s work and could highlight their expertise.
