In the first month alone, the agency exceeded all campaign goals.

Their Challenge

Sphera came to KemperLesnik to establish itself independently in the EHS industry and develop a strong and recognizable brand identity. Purchased by a private equity firm and carved out of a leading information & insights company, Sphera’s business was rooted in 30 years of industry-leading experience and data. The company needed a powerful launch in order to succeed as a private entity and prove to clients, customers, investors and competitors that the brand is here to stay and will continue to innovate.

Our Solution

KemperLesnik developed a media relations strategy focused on introducing the brand as the industry leader in every way: client roster, technology, innovation and leadership. With an additional focus on Sphera’s decision to establish the company headquarters in Chicago, one of the nation’s fastest growing technology hubs, the agency successfully secured local media coverage. While immediate pick-ups were top priority, the team worked with a long-term strategy in place to ensure the cadence and quality of media coverage continued for the months, and years, to come.
