Turning 30 this year, Penna Powers Brian Haynes (PPBH) advertising, public relations, digital and public involvement changed its name and logo. Starting September 22, the agency is now Penna Powers.
“Our rebrand is more than just semantics,” said Penna Powers founding partner and CEO Chuck Penna. “Communication is always changing, but the basis of successful communication, and building brands, has been and remains two-way conversation. The new mark captures that essence.
The logo, stylized dialogue boxes, represents this two-way conversation—the foundation for building successful brands. Together with partners Dave Smith and Mike Brian, Penna unveiled the agency’s new name and logo as part of its anniversary celebration.
“As a company, we have also had many evolutions over our 30 years, adding disciplines, capabilities and offices, but there has always been one constant – we have an innovative, hard working team that constantly looks ahead to deliver on the next big thing” said Penna Powers partner and COO Mike Brian. “We also want to recognize our tremendous client partners who allow us to do what we love, and we can’t wait to see what the next 30 years brings.”
“Communication also is the catalyst to anticipating the business needs of our clients,” said Penna Powers managing partner, Dave Smith. “Like gravity, digital is a powerful force influencing relationships, conversions and decisions. Integrating digital strategies and capabilities into our wheelhouse has jettisoned our ability to help our client partners achieve their communication and business goals.
