Everything you achieve in business – from innovation and process improvement,
to market share gains, safety goals, financial performance and more
– occurs through conversations that lead to those results.
As a company with over 180 years of history, and a strong global presence, it was challenging to enter North America in 2003 as a market newcomer. We’ve built our domestic reputation over the last ten years through word of mouth, but it wasn’t until we engaged Ward in 2012 that our brand began to really take off in the U.S.
Ward’s great work ethic and exceptional understanding of Bureau Veritas’ value proposition are the keys to Ward’s success in obtaining relevant, high profile media coverage for Bureau Veritas. I’ve been exceedingly happy with the results! Jack Cochran, Director of Marketing

Ward has really helped bring our PR program to the next level.
Our business has a hand in more than 10 different sectors, each with varying business goals and marketing demands. Ward has helped us to develop an overall public relations strategy aligning with our corporate goals, as well as modify segments of our plan for targeted sectors.
Project management, message development, and flexibility to work with multiple priorities has helped us to lay a better foundation for our communication programs, which has helped deliver more quality results. Their expertise and understanding of all aspects of public relations and media preparation has been a major asset to both our marketing team and the management. Amy Stine, Communications Specialist
Develop a proactive, targeted and sustainable public relations plan segmented by target market to:
Provide deeper, industry specific education that the existing marketing program elements could not achieve;
Create acceptance of decision makers in priority industries including oil and gas, petrochemical and refining, utilities, special events and manufacturing; and
Raise awareness of the rent-versus-buy value proposition.
