Welcome to Our New “Home” – A Note from Brighton’s President and CEO

by on 2.5.2013 posted in Company News

For those of you who have packed and moved, whether it has been to an apartment, a house or even a dorm room, you understand how daunting a task it can be. Now imagine 60 people moving at the same time while they are in the midst of a multitude of time-sensitive client projects. The past couple of weeks have not been without a few bumps but I am happy to report that WE ARE IN OUR NEW HOME!

While the move itself is never fun, planning for the move was exciting and working in our new space will be great. You may be asking, “Why go through all of this stress if only to find yourself less than two blocks from where you started?” There are many reasons for Brighton’s relocation, but the first is that we are in business to better serve our clients. Over the past few years, Brighton has expanded our capabilities and won new business. To accommodate that growth, we needed more people and a larger office that is conducive to our THINK, CREATE, ENGAGE philosophy. read more

It is very hard for me to write about the importance of being thankful without bringing tears to my eyes.  I don’t even know where to begin.  Of course, I am thankful for my health, my family (and their health), my friends, BRIGHTON and all of our Brightonians!!!  But I am thankful for so much more than that. read more

The title of this post is a quotation that appeared on the page of my “inspirational” daily calendar a few days ago. Interesting! How many people can actually say this is the case in their own lives? I can. Honestly…I can. I consider myself very lucky. The question is, can you? read more

Making an Agency Meeting a Walk in the Park

by on 11.15.2011 posted in Company News

There we were…it was the middle of October and the weather was 80 degrees and gorgeous. Who wouldn’t want to escape the office for a couple of hours and enjoy the beautiful fall day? But with all of the work on our plates, who has time to enjoy the great outdoors? Maybe it’s time to find a reason to take work outside!

The Role of Customer Service in Business

by on 8.23.2011 posted in Company News, Public Relations

The art of being nice and doing the right thing is often lost in the hustle and bustle world in which we live. It is often easier and less complicated to simply do only what it takes to move through our to-do lists without taking the time to do the right thing.

Advice for Job Hunters

by on 3.18.2010 posted in Company News, Public Relations

With so many people hunting for a new job today, it seems like hiring people should be easy.  Actually, this is one of the most difficult activities in my day.  Being that we, at Brighton, are in the service industry, we don’t have a product to sell.  The people who work here are our product.  We are only as good as the people we hire…and I’m happy to say…we hire great people.  But this is not without the daily effort of searching for the needles in the haystack. read more
