Our Story

Founded in 2003 by a former Army Special Forces Officer (Green Beret) and Global Manager with The Procter and Gamble Company, LaVERDAD is an award winning business as well as an Hispanic and  Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), that has become one of the most recognized names bringing consumer insights and marketing strategies to Fortune 1,000 companies, nonprofits, and governmental agencies.

Our headquarters are in Cincinnati, OH and we operate throughout the U.S. We’re a highly diverse and qualified team in the fields of marketing, research, market analysis, creative design, public relations and advertising.

Since our formation, LaVERDAD has conducted campaigns with every major consumer segment in the US, as well as initiatives around the world. Based on changes in market dynamics in 2009 LaVERDAD started to undertake a global growth strategy focused on the emerging BRIC (Brasil, Russia, India & China) nations.

Serving a Global Economy

In terms of global economics, BRIC is a grouping acronym that refers to the countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China, which are all deemed to be at a similar stage of newly advanced economic development. It is typically rendered as “the BRICs” or “the BRIC countries” or “the BRIC economies” or alternatively as the “Big Four.”

The BRIC nations, which account today for about 40% of the world’s population and 40% of the world’s annual gross domestic product (GDP), are set to become the global growth locomotive. Collectively, they are expected to outperform the world as a whole, as well as major industrialized economies over the next two years.

Some countries, such as China and India, will expand even more robustly than the bloc on average. This is particularly relevant, given that China has just taken from Japan the title of the second largest economy. In that sense, China’s 10% growth is all but remarkable compared to Japan’s 2% rate over the next two years. Driven by a vibrant domestic demand, the expansion in the BRIC markets will be so buoyant that, by 2014, these countries will account for as much as 61% of the overall growth in the world’s output.

We believe that demonstrating a growth strategy entails more than just demonstrating how our revenue will grow. The growth strategy of our business plan is about proving to others that we have a plan for bringing our product (service) to new customers and new markets, and even introducing new products.

Fortune 500 clients rely on LaVERDAD as the partner of choice to help identify actionable “TRUTHS” about consumers and the marketplace, and then trust us to take actions to create marketing campaigns that lead to measurable results.

Our mission is to help clients effectively plan and execute marketing programs to win with domestic and global multicultural consumers.

LaVERDAD does this by developing the right strategy to raise brand awareness, use the right applied research methodology to capture actionable and data-based insights, and then take action with clients to create campaigns that produce measurable results.

We believe a diverse team will outperform a homogeneous team every time, that’s why we are DIVERSE BY DESIGN.

To demonstrate, the list of countries that LaVERDAD team members come from includes Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, England, Germany, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, USA & Venezuela.

Our client portfolio is impressive for any agency, but even more so for an organically grown business that is now over twelve years old. We’ve helped develop dozens of billion dollar brands and serve clients such as Toyota, Cintas, Wal-Mart, Fifth Third Bank, Allstate, Children’s Hospital, Mercy Health, and brands such as Pantene, Head & Shoulders, Crest, Vicks, Pepto Bismol, Mr. Clean, SunnyD, Dawn, Gillette, Oral B, Old Spice and Olay.

Of particular note, we deploy proprietary marketing innovation that has increased speed to market for several global brands, contributing over $250 million dollars in incremental revenue potential. Going forward, our vision is to be the agency of choice in helping clients win by leveraging big data and customer insights to develop marketing and PR campaigns that guarantee measurable results.

Testimonial

“”LaVERDAD helped us tremendously.We called upon them to support a new product launch. One week after our initial meeting, we conducted a full ethnic consumer immersion in-home study attended by product development, brand mangers, sales, and our marketing research experts, followed by two full days of qualitative Hispanic and African American focus groups just one week after the immersions.  Their work, attention to our needs, and turnaround time has been fantastic!”
