BKD launches new branding campaign
BKD, LLP has announced the firmwide launch of its new branding campaign. The new brand, which was officially unveiled October 24th at the firm's annual leadership conference, will be used throughout the organization's 30 offices located in 12 states. The campaign centers around the expertise, insight, attention, and ideas clients can receive from the more than 2,000 professionals and industry leaders of BKD.
The new campaign is entitled "experience BKD," and features actual BKD partners, managers, and senior managers in the redesigned brochures, Web site and advertisements. The campaign also employs new colors, an updated BKD logo, and a communication style geared toward today's time-pressed readers.
The result of more than 120 days of market research involving surveys of clients and BKD personnel, brand workshops, and one-on-one interviews with the firm's key leaders, the new brand is designed to differentiate the firm from its competitors, as well as position BKD as a national CPA and advisory firm. This brand launch will continue throughout 2009 with the scheduled rollout of an e-marketing campaign, internal and external signage, and event exhibit materials.
"Unmatched client service, integrity, innovation and expertise is at the heart of our business, and our new branding campaign allows us to showcase this and offer a personal invitation to potential clients and employees to experience all we offer as a firm," said Spencer.
"The BKD brand is who we are, so we worked to find just the right words and images to deliver a clear, consistent message about how we operate as an organization," said Chad Person, BKD brand manager. "I believe this is a strong brand campaign and it will play a central role in helping the firm achieve its vision."
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
