THE MISSION.

Our mission is to help companies enhance their customer’s experience by strategically aligning their business operations and brand marketing.

THE VISION.

Our vision is to bring customer focused insight and impactful sustainability to innovative brands and industry leaders, worldwide. 

As we each successfully built our own business operations and branding company, there was always an important piece of the business sustainability & growth puzzle missing until…

In 2018, Bridget Joy of Designshow Marketing and Terrence Hight, Jr. of The Hight Effect discovered a common problem a majority of businesses have, no alignment between business operations and brand marketing. This problem, too big to solve alone, led the serial entrepreneurs to combine forces and create The Business and Brand.
By joining forces, the company has a focus on aligning a company’s business operations and brand marketing, The Business and Brand has quickly emerged as the leader in customer-focused strategies and developed the Operational Branding™ methodology.
