The Kansas Chamber has announced the outcome of its recent agency review. After narrowing the field of contenders to six agencies, the Chamber selected Wichita-based Greteman Group. The contract includes branding, marketing and public relations support.
“It is critical we communicate the Kansas Chamber’s unique and vital role,” says Kent Beisner, Kansas Chamber CEO. “Greteman Group convinced us that its team has the expertise and dedication to get us where we need to be.”
The relationship kicks off with the discovery phase of Greteman Group’s three-part Ascend process. The agency will conduct a brand audit, followed by a daylong workshop with staff and board members.
“Creating a positive business environment is something every Kansan cares about – or should,” says Sonia Greteman, agency president and creative director. “Our team plans to do everything we can to help the Chamber achieve its ambitious goal of making Kansas the best state in the nation to do business.”
