on lower mid-market M&A covering sell-side, buy-side and fundraising projects. We profile the firm as we look to gain an insight into the firm’s extensive success.

Boasting a vast amount of knowledge of operating across the finance sector, the firm holds strong expertise and background in several key sectors, ranging from Business Services and Industrials to TMT, Consumer and Marketing Services. Contributing to its success, is the team’s dedication to getting to know the client and understanding exactly what their desired outcome is.

Taking its Success Around the World Located in Houston, Blue Atlas focuses on providing web marketing services, specialising in website development. Turning seven in the month of May, the experienced team serves clients nationwide in all aspects of Marketing, both online and offline. Working with clients from a variety of industries, the team offers simple websites to complex online and mobile applications whilst driving traffic, leads, and businesses for clients. The company works primarily with industrial, oil & gas, and B2B companies that need to increase their web presence and grow leads for their sales team. Operating with a long-term vision, the team at Blue Atlas is looking to help businesses worldwide to become industry experts and grow their sales. The team does this through professional website development and web marketing services that focuses on being resourceful. With the firm providing valuable information to clients, customers gain a strategic positioning in their industry that most industrial and B2B companies do not regularly partake in.

Nate tells us what attributes his company possess which he believes help it to stand out amongst other similar firms within the sector. He cites the team’s ability to consistently deliver excellent results in a quick and responsive matter as a key differentiator for the firm. “Besides responsiveness, timely delivery, and quality work, our team focuses on the result that many other firms don’t understand. We provide longlasting ROI, because we position our clients within their industries like no other. We don’t just build a website, we build an industry leader.” Providing us with an overview of the marketing industry, Nate comments on what impact being based in Houston has on the firm, and emphasises how important it is that the company utilises its stand out attributes. “Here at Blue Atlas, we are located in the Greater Houston area, which is not known for its marketing giants. Many potential clients are seeking Dallas, LA, Chicago, and New York firms to do their development and marketing. We have to stand out in an under-utilised marketing

industry and help clients understand our capabilities and positioning focus.” Working within the marketing industry, Nate and his team utilise certain techniques which enable the firm to stay ahead of the ever developing advances within the market. He describes what methods Blue Atlas employ in order to ensure they are at the forefront of any developments. “Many of our clients are in industries that may utilise amazing technology in their products but operate behind the times in regard to marketing and design. We have to identify a larger range of technology and new developments, in order to suggest and recommend elements that bridge the gap between antiquated marketing activities with advanced technological products.” Having put together a team full of knowledge, Nate points out what strategies the firm utilise in order to ensure that they attract the greatest talent within the industry, and are subsequently able to continue to build a team which strives to do the best for both the company and client.

This is to Certify:

Company Name “When employing new staff, we take our time hiring with a better set of job descriptions, systems, and operating procedures to ensure each person understand their responsibilities within Blue Atlas. We try to hire just before we truly need a position, meaning we are ahead of workload. This allows us to deliver a better, consistent result for our clients.” In his concluding comments, Nate predicts what the future holds for Blue Atlas, hinting at expansion and internal growth, whilst also envisaging what developments there will be throughout the marketing industry which Blue

Atlas will look to capitalise on. Being able to forecast these changes leaves Nate and the team confident of exciting times ahead for Blue Atlas as it continues to achieve its overall mission. “Blue Atlas is growing tremendously in 2018. After doubling our company by April 30th, we expect to possibly do it again by year end. Going forward, we are looking to grow additional offices in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. We currently have an office in Tampa, FL and staff in Dallas, so both areas will be targets for growth in 2018. Going into 2019,

we are planning for increased brand awareness and positioning to establish Blue Atlas as the premier web marketing and development firm in Texas. “In the future, website development is changing. Technology is changing, but so are expectations. Fortunately, there are still many industries and sectors that are playing catch-up, and we can help them get there. However, the website development world is going to look a lot different in 2-3 years. Companies want more from their online presence and end users are expecting a more digital

experience. As long as we stay abreast of new technology and experience as soon as a stable version is available, we will be able to roll out new options and technologies for our clients ahead of the bulk of their competitors.”

more depth, is Speed’s Business & Corporate Director, Laura Tallett. Central to this is being clear as to what your story is, and what you want to be known for. In an industry where there are many new and older organisations, having a clear point of view that is different and positions you as a credible leader is key to success. Integral to this communicationsled approach is having a CEO and leadership team that will take the plunge and lead the discussion along this journey. As the head of an organisation, the CEO will directly influence the personality of the business. He or she will set the tone for business behaviours and be fundamental in the creation of its identity (with a little help along the way). In many ways, the CEO is an essential member of the marketing team and leading voice piece for the business, or arguably should be. Whilst CEOs are rightly focused on growth and financial return, they also recognise the value of building the ‘good’ reputation of their business, with many seeing themselves as the reputational stewards. The KPMG 2017 Global CEO outlook report outlines how reputation and risk, alongside trust in a time of disruption, has risen on the CEO agenda to become one of the top

most important issues they face today. Recently, we surveyed over 500 CEOs and CMOs, and our research showed us that whilst 95% of CEOs claim to regularly engage with marketing, over 70% then go on to provide a range of reasons why this does not happen in reality. When the CMOs were asked about the levels of contact that they had with their CEO, 42% said they still struggled to engage their CEO. This was particularly interesting given the fact that 84% of CEOs believe that a robust communications strategy is critical to business growth.

CERTIFICATE

This is to Certify:

It appears that whilst many leaders believe they are involved and engaged there is a perception gap between the CEO and CMO on what this really means, and what is required of the CEO. So, despite its growing importance in driving growth and supporting new market entrants, there is still a real challenge that needs to be overcome in educating the CEO and leadership teams around marketing and communications in practise, as well as their need to engage actively in this. They may understand its importance, but it appears many CEOs are
