September Investor Spotlight
Meet Stuart Feigley
Organization: Feigley Communications
BRAC Involvement: External Image Working Group Member
What does your organization do?
Feigley Communications is a strategic communications firm that advises businesses and organizations on how to grow sales and/or brand awareness through advertising, public relations, digital marketing and social media. We’re basically creative problem solvers who use the power of messaging and technology to drive ROI for our clients. And we have fun doing it.
What are some advantages of being located/doing business in the Capital Region?
I love that there’s such a diverse mix of industries and businesses here. It makes our jobs very interesting, as we might be working on an advertising campaign for financial services one minute and a social media initiative about the risk of West Nile Virus the next. Also, the Baton Rouge Area has such an incredible pool of talent. Of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that our cuisine is the best in the world.
Why did you decide to invest in BRAC?
I wholeheartedly believe in BRAC’s vision for the Baton Rouge Area to become one of the leading economies and premier business locations in the country. For that sort of change to happen, though, we have to move beyond talking and start doing. Momentum doesn’t just happen. It takes effort.
What would you say to companies contemplating joining BRAC?
Come join us. Get involved. Be a participant and not a spectator. See for yourself how rewarding it can be to work alongside the BRAC team, and other business and community leaders as we create that vibrant, energetic Baton Rouge of tomorrow we all want.
What do you anticipate for your company in the next five years? For the Capital Region?
To loosely quote the title of BRAC’s five-year regional strategic plan, the team at Feigley Communications is “thinking bigger.” 2018 has been a strong year for us so far and new opportunities continue to come our way. We’ll look to build on that in 2019 and beyond. As for the Capital Region, I think there’s great energy and excitement. People are optimistic and investing in their dreams, whether it’s opening a new restaurant or launching a new professional service firm. New residential neighborhoods are popping up all over town. Old commercial buildings are being torn down to make way for new developments. It’s a great time to live and work in the Baton Rouge Area.
BRAC is an investor-driven organization leading economic development in the nine-parish Baton Rouge Area. BRAC’s investor base includes small businesses, midsize firms, large industry and entrepreneurial startups, as well as other individuals and organizations.
