When A/E/C firms acquire other firms – whether to expand geographically or to broaden their capacities and service lines – they must first develop internal plans for effective branding strategy and marketing integration. Noreen Ellis, Chief Communications Officer at Knight E/A, Inc., will share her experience on how Knight focused their approach to branding and marketing for two recent acquisitions. There will be real-world lessons and tips for all, whether you are a recently merged, acquired, or boutique business enterprise!



Senior marketing and business development professionals with 10 years or more experience in the A/E/C industry are welcome to join the series. These sessions are geared towards those with experience managing business development, marketing budgets, firm procedures and operations with a direct staff and internal resources.
