Largemouth’s Latest: Fall 2020 Edition

Largemouth’s Latest: Fall 2020 Edition


  • On Sept. 11, Tunnel to Towers Foundation, established in memory of fallen 9/11 FDNY Firefighter Stephen Siller, honored the service and sacrifice of U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Matthew J. West by giving his widow and children a new, mortgage-free home. Honored to play a role in the presentation, our team managed the process of securing b-roll footage and secured coverage in local news media, including NBC and ABC affiliates.


  • As consumers buy more and bigger goods online, less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers are filling a gap in residential deliveries. Southeastern Freight Lines, a decades long leader in technology innovations within its industry, announced its Final Mile service is now available across all 89 of its service centers this fall. Our team ensured the timely launch received the media recognition it deserved. Among the coverage across trade and local business media, Commercial Carrier Journal named the company its CCJ Innovator of December noting how it “meets e-commerce explosion head-on with digitization,” and Journal of Commerce prominently featured Southeastern and its technology throughout its article on the industry trend.



  • Q: What do you do when you can’t host attendees at your annual user conference?
    A: You bring the event to them!

    COVID-19 changed the way businesses conducted events in 2020 in a way that gave us a possible peek at the future. This was certainly true of our client Sensus, a Xylem Brand, which transitioned to a virtual experience for their annual Xylem Reach conference in October.

    Thanks to the team’s hard work, Sensus delivered a streamlined virtual event featuring a keynote presentation, executive roundtable discussions, customer panels and much more. Personalized “swag bag” mailers with blue light glasses and happy hour starter kits offered a thoughtful touch for those missing the in-person feel.

    The virtual Xylem Reach conference boasted a record number of customer, distributor and partner attendees. The event’s success may hint at how things will continue to evolve. Whether it means more digital conferences or hybrid live/digital events, there’s likely no going back from some of the innovations brought to us in 2020.


  • Speaking of the future of in-person gatherings, event space design is crucial to the return to live meetings. Our team connected expert Kevin Dana of client CORT Events with the Meetings Today podcast to discuss key ways the approach to meeting space design is changing in an effort to create events where safety and social distancing are top of mind. Listen here.



  • Now more than ever, cybersecurity is top-of-mind for a variety of industries – ranging from enterprises to education. With October marking National Cybersecurity Month, our team launched a strategic pitching campaign for client Eaton Power Quality, offering contributed articles with expert insights on some of the lesser-known vulnerabilities existing in the IT landscape, like hacks to uninterruptable power systems (UPSs) or other power backup systems. Our efforts resulted in securing multiple stories with notable trade publications, including Dark Reading and Cyber Defense e-Magazine.


  • The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has certainly impacted business operations for a number of industries – and it is not different for clinical research. To bring long-standing client Rho to the forefront of the conversation in the industry, our team secured an opportunity to contribute an Expert Opinion article by Vice President and Senior Medical officer Jack Modell, M.D. on how the virus has impacted clinical trial operations, specifically as it relates to current FDA guidance.


  • That is the question that Eaton’s Power Quality division tackled in a unique way to inspire interest in STEM fields for the next generation of IT professionals. In a new children’s book, What does an IT pro do?, Honey the honey badger explains to her class what her parents, who are IT professionals, (really) do as a part of their jobs. Our team generated awareness and media interest in the quirky children’s story via proactive pitching and sending hard copies to top industry publications, resulting in coverage from Mission Critical Magazine.


  • You’ll find our very own CEO Brandon Bryce on the pages of Durham Magazine in recognition of Largemouth’s 15th year in business. Read more about his reflections on this milestone during an unprecedented year here.


  • As CloudFactory welcomes John Cotterell to its board of directors, our team is drawing attention to how Cotterell’s deep experience in disruptive technology leadership will support the company’s continued growth. Read more in Digital Journal.


  • With admission numbers on the rise, Central Piedmont Community College was seeking innovative infrastructure to keep up with the growing student population. As Stewart stepped up to the plate helping to construct one of the largest buildings on campus, the North Classroom Building, our team secured a feature story in Modern Steel Construction Magazine. Project Manager and Structural Engineer Trina Agnello explains how Stewart kept the student experience at the forefront of the extensive project in the latest issue.


  • Becoming a thought leader doesn’t happen by accident. In the case of Southeastern Freight Lines, it’s position as a thought leader in technology in the transportation field has long been established – as have our team’s long-standing relationships with editors covering the industry. When Transport Topics editor Mindy Long was writing a story on technology used to strengthen truck and trailer inspection procedures, she reached out to schedule an interview and our team promptly connected her with Lee Long, director of fleet services. The resulting article further establishes this credibility – and nurtures our relationship.
