Greenhaus Advertising of San Diego has announced it has become the agency of record for the Senior Resource Group and Rise Communities.
Senior Resource Group owns and operates 32 senior living communities in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Oregon, Washington and Texas. Each SRG community offers independent living, memory care and assisted living. Greenhaus said it will work on brand creative, web strategy, new community marketing and ongoing ad campaigns for SRG’s established properties and developing a comprehensive recruitment employment campaign across all markets.
Also signing with Greenhaus is Rise Communities for their Cane Island development, a master-planned ommunity in Katy, TX. Opened in 2016, Cane Island is expected to feature more than 2,000 homes in various price ranges. Named after the 1872 settlement, the Cane Island master-planned community is approximately 35 miles from downtown Houston and easily accessible to many of the region’s business, industrial and retail centers.
Greenhaus said it will oversee marketing for new phases at Cane Island, including community positioning, online and offline creative, development of a new website, SEO services, digital and traditional media services, social media marketing and new collateral.
“Working with clients like SRG adds even greater category diversification for us and the Cane Island development provides the agency an opportunity to work in a new geographic market,” said Paul Whitbeck, managing director at Greenhaus. “We are honored to be selected by two such leaders in their respective industries and look forward to developing strong relationships in the future.”
