“Working with Doug was a rejuvenating and galvanizing experience from start to end. Our family business has been around since 1983, and recently transitioned the leadership from first generational to second. A key part of the succession was looking inward to understand our unique identity and position in the community. Enter the Brand Interventionist. He took a 360 degree approach to gain insight on who we are and what we’re known for. From roundtable workshops with key team members, to extensive client feedback and industry comparison, he was able to formulate a unique positioning that truly spoke to our business philosophy and values. The process was fun and engaging and Doug was very professional throughout. We are very grateful for the opportunity to work with Doug and highly recommend his talents to anyone wanting to own their identity.”
