Holbrook & Manter Celebrates Centennial with Updated Brand and Website

For Immediate Release

Holbrook & Manter, CPAs is proud to be celebrating their 100th year in business as a continuous firm. In conjunction with their centennial, H&M has unveiled an updated brand look and messaging. They have also launched a completely rebuilt website that honors the firm’s history, while introducing both current and future clients to their new look.

“As we planned for this milestone anniversary, we knew it would be the perfect time to reflect, capture and embrace a refreshed look for the firm,” states H&M Principal, Stephen Smith, “there really is no better catalyst than our centennial to share our updated brand. It is our hope that it conveys that we are experienced, approachable and committed to client satisfaction.”

Holbrook & Manter, CPAs partnered with Slagle Design, out of Columbus, Ohio to create the aesthetics of the new brand. The firm’s new suite of logos is centered on the colors of navy blue, light blue and mustard gold. While the new logos bring a refreshed look to the brand, notes of  H&M’s original look can still be found, “those who are familiar with our previous look will notice that the ampersand is still an important part of our image, but it has been updated,” shares Molly Pensyl, H&M’s Marketing & Business Development Manager, “and the new gold hue pays homage to the gold foil that we used in the past.” The firm also worked with Ratchet Strategy + Communication out of Columbus, Ohio to assist with the new brand messaging. H&M will adapt multiple tag lines designed to quickly describe the services they provide and their commitment to client satisfaction.

Holbrook & Manter’s new brand will be very visible as they celebrate their 100th anniversary throughout 2019. What began as a single office accounting firm in Marion in 1919, has grown to a five-office operation. The firm, which is led by its six principals, feels their longevity in the marketplace is a testament to the relationships they share with their valued clients. H&M’s Managing Principal, Bradley Ridge shares, “what a terrific feeling it has been to be a part of many client successes over the decades. We are grateful for our client’s loyalty, and when we thoughtfully consider that they have placed a century’s worth of trust in us, it is overwhelming.”

The firm will celebrate this milestone in a variety of ways. Such as client appreciation and community service, to embracing a new website design. The site was built by ForeFront Web, out of Dublin, Ohio, who has long been H&M’s partner in their websites and other digital efforts. Access the site here:
