New York/Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 17, 2008
Inc. magazine ranked Talent Connections, an Atlanta-based recruiting consulting firm, Company No. 86 on its 26th annual Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. These accolades come on the heels of working with The Brand Renovator, Atlanta-based branding consultants specializing in branding professional firms and the branding of services, to help better understand and elevate a brand to increase market share.
"We turned to The Brand Renovator," says Talent Connections CEO Tom Darrow, "to help us understand how the market perceived us. Their recommendations to clarify our service offerings and renovate our message to market ultimately led us to rename the company. This strategy shift helped lead us to our most successful years in history and ultimately to being named to the Inc. 500 list of the fastest growing private companies in the U.S." Talent Connections is ranked No. 11 among the 50 human resources companies listed nationally and has seen a three-year sales growth of 1,728.2%.
Revitalizing a brand may be old hat to consumer product companies who pioneered the art and science of brand positioning years ago, but professional services firms have been slow to embrace the power of branding. "I applaud Darrow and his company for being on the forefront of their industry, says Linda Travis, Principal of The Brand Renovator, "applying sound brand-building strategies to respond to confusion in the marketplace and leveraging the company's strengths accordingly."
