Laura Campbell & Associates, a business growth advisory firm founded in 1997, is pleased to announce it is celebrating its 20th anniversary. During the last two decades, the company has assisted more than 500 companies and start-ups in their growth and development, and also helped guide numerous private equity investors and individual executive coaching clients. While the firm serves clients from coast to coast, Laura Campbell & Associates is headquartered in the thriving business district of Brentwood, Tenn., just outside of Nashville.
“It was 20 years ago that we set out to help businesses and individuals achieve their growth goals while building companies that make a difference in the world. I am pleased to report we have done just that,” stated Laura Campbell, Founder and CEO. “From helping build a multibillion-dollar company that began as a few scribbles on a piece of paper to coaching young executives on their next career moves, the triumphs of our clients have been truly rewarding. We thank the many individuals who have contributed to our success and look forward to all that we will accomplish in our next 20 years.”
The firm’s comprehensive services include strategic planning; business acceleration assessments; executive coaching; sales and business development; marketing and communications; and fundraising strategy and investor relations. While many Laura Campbell & Associates clients are focused on healthcare, technology and business-to-business services, the firm has a wealth of experience in other industries.
“Many of our client relationships involve assisting businesses with better organizing and communicating their positioning and using their limited financial resources more wisely, as well as attracting needed funding,” said Campbell. “While many of our executive clients rank among the best-of-the-best in the country, we draw upon deep experience to help individuals from all backgrounds and at all levels in their careers. An important part of our mission is giving back to the community and making our services accessible and economical for all – especially the next generation of business executives or individuals looking to maximize their impact in the business world.”
Executive Coaching and Business Assessment Expansion
Laura Campbell & Associates has recently expanded the amount of time allocated to working with executive coaching clients across the country via telephone and Skype. There has also been a strong demand for the company’s business acceleration assessment services, which involve identifying actions for quick growth results. The firm’s proven track record is built upon highly individualized services, all of which are implemented under the personal direction of Campbell and supported by an experienced team of writers, analysts, marketers and graphic designers.
Campbell is a nationally recognized thought leader in launching and growing businesses – as an entrepreneur, a venture capitalist, a strategist, an author and a corporate communicator for both public and private companies. In addition to serving as a board member of numerous companies and organizations, Campbell’s experience includes serving as the first female Partner of one of the South’s leading venture capital firms, Massey Burch, where she worked alongside the late Jack C. Massey, who founded and listed three companies on the New York Stock Exchange. Campbell’s background also includes launching and serving as President of the Nashville Health Care Council, a highly successful and first-of-its-kind economic development organization.
